Explore your Strava bike rides and runs in augmented reality. A beautiful 3D terrain map, powered by Mapbox, is placed in the real world allowing you to walk around and explore your past activities in a way that wasn’t possible before.
You can jump right into the app — no account needed! With a beautiful featured gallery of rides and runs, you can explore famous cycling routes like Alpe D'Huez and Mont Ventoux, and stunning terrain like Yosemite Valley.
This app works best with a Strava account. After you connect your account, you can browse your past activities, browse your friends’ activities, and browse the routes you built on Strava’s route builder.
After you choose an activity or route and bring up the AR camera, you can tap to place the map in the real world. Swiping up and down will change the distance of the map from the floor. Swiping left and right will change the rotation of the map. Pinching to zoom will change the scale of the map. Two finger tap and holding will let you reposition the map with your device position.
One of our favorite things to do once the map has been placed is to use the iOS screen recording feature to produce beautiful videos. Once you’ve started recording in AR, the phone becomes like a camera and you can act like the director of your own action replay - panning, zooming, and tracking your route. Once you’re finished, the video will show up in the camera roll, ready to send out to friends on social networks. Note that the screen recording feature needs to be turned on in Control Center, which is outside of the Fitness AR app.
Fixed some compatibility issues with the iPhone X. The AR view should now be full screen.
Small other bug fixes and improvements.
Ratings and Reviews
This app could be really cool if it actually worked. Anytime i try to view a map on iphone x it works 25 percent of the time. For an app that i paid for i would expect them to be coming out with updates and fixes more often than one or two a year.
Not useful or interesting.
In theory this could be cool, but the map data isn’t there. This is just a google map plopped on the floor or table in AR. Not really even very interesting for more than 2-3 minutes, no features, and doesn’t really make a great AR demo for people.
There are tons of features you could imagine being here to make it more interesting (heat map support, animated real-time comparisons of routes, route data, etc.). None of those are here. It’s just a map. With a poly line. Projected into an AR view.
Needs work, has potential
When I try to get close enough to actually see/enjoy the 3D effect, the App stops working.
It only loads my Strava activity until November 22 of last year. What’s up with that?
Nothing but errors when I try to see friends activity.
This could be a fun app but needs more work and refinement.
