For you fitness fanatics out there that haven't yet tried Sportrate Fitness Tracker, this weekend could be just the right time to grab a bargain. The BlackBerry 10 application is initially free to download but then consists of two other versions - Basic and Advanced.

For this weekend only the prices have been slashed so you can get the basic edition for $0.99 instead of $3.99 and the advanced for $1.99 instead of $6.99 - some huge savings! If you have already purchased the basic version you can upgrade to the advanced for just $0.99.

The sale will run from Friday 25th until Sunday 27th, although times will be dependent on your location and how fast the BlackBerry World servers update.

Features of Sportrate include:

  • Friendly interface 
  • GPX file export
  • Plenty of activities 
  • Types of training
  • Comments
  • HQ and very fast Maps
  • Offline Charts (beta)
  • Native BlackBerry 10

If you missed our hands on video with Sportrate you can catch up here. It's a super app if fitness is your thing.

How is it? What are the competitors? I've never downloaded a fitness app like this but want to

White Z30STA100-5/10.2.1.1925 = heaven.

I prefer Retrace (native BB10 app) as a more general outdoors handheld GPS replacement, but SportRate is also nice for tracking exercises.

Great to hear. But any sort of detailed review? How does it stack against other similar apps?

I think CascaRun is by far the best NATIVE Blackberry sports fitness (I can't comment directly on the one above but better than Endomondo, Sports Tracker and MapmyRun). The Dev just keeps on making it better and better. I used it this a.m. and it's come leaps and bounds in just one year. It synched up perfectly with my Bluetooth Heart Rate monitor, grabbed a GPS signal right away. I was able to listen to music while I ran but it gave me short updates at each kilometer (or mile if you prefer) and then automatically back to my music. I haven't even finished testing out all of the new customizations. (lockscreen notifications and programmable side buttons) Workout summary is terrific including calories burned if you program in your age and weight. It even includes a graph of your speed vs heart rate and is sharable 6 ways from Sunday! I just can't say enough good things about CascaRun.

I've been using Sportrate for several months now, and even the free version offers very good functionality. Accuracy on calories and distance had some minor issues earlier, but the developer is very responsive, and improvements have been frequent. The user interface is simple and quick to respond. I just upgraded to the Advanced version and look forward to trying additional features.

If this is your case check out Nike+ Running. It's very interactive let's you set your goals and has reminders and schedules to set your runs.
I have it on iphone but you can also get it from Snap for BlackBerry.
One of the features I like ( it has many ) is that it shows you your fitness level compared to people in your age group.
At 40 I love seeing how my times are faster and my miles are much longer than people in the 25-40 age range.
Another thing I like about Nike+ Running are the progress/ goal badges.
But I still purchased this app to see how it stacks up. I'm hoping it syncs with MyFitnessPal.

I just downloaded the app. The upgrade for the advanced app is 6.99. It's not on sale.

Hello Pcares! I'm sure that the new price should be available in all countries now. If the 'buy' buttons still show old price, you can check actual price by clicking on one of them.

I've been using the free version for several weeks already and was thinking about upgrading. So I was happy to read about the spring sale here at CB. Well for me it perfectly worked at the rates given in the article.

Track your fitness by the weight you lose and the fun you have participating in physical activities, instead of checking your stupid device to see how you're doing. LMAO
