What is a Fitness App?
A fitness app is a mobile application that helps users in their daily fitness routine and goals. There are a large variety of sensors in a modern smartphone that can be used to track the fitness activities of consumers. Broadly, fitness apps can be classified into three distinct forms:
GPS-Based Fitness Apps:

Accelerometer and Gyroscope-Based Fitness Apps:
The accelerometer and gyroscope in a smartphone and smartwatch, is used to track the orientation of the device, and can be programmed to detect changes in altitude and movement relative to a static spot. Such systems are used to develop apps for fitness enthusiasts who work out at a gym or their home, tracking movement for exercises such as chin-ups, sit-ups and crunches.
Sensor-Based Fitness Apps:
In addition to the aforementioned sensors, smartphones and especially smartwatches contain additional sensors such as heart rate monitors, pulse monitors and other such devices. These components can be programmed to track the heart rate while performing intensive and strenuous physical activity such as bench-presses, weighted squats and other exercises which lets the user incur a large amount of cardiovascular activity.
