    1. do you think endomondo is better or S Health?

      I am trying to figure which is better for me to use.

      1. I used both of them in cycling and treadmill and i think in cycling s health is better because it stops and strats automatically and shows speed more accurately but it shows less calories burned than endomondo. I don't know which one is more precise. The good thing about these apps is variety of activities which is very limited in s health for example aerobics in UA record is useful for me. Another problem is that when UA apps are running on the watch the auto mod on s health doesn't stop the auto activity detection.

  1. I am trying to find a way for me to log the run on my phone, but have the watch show the stats, but so far I can only get it to run independent of each other. My android Watch would auto show what my phone was recording. Am I doing something wrong? (I have only had the S2 for a couple days now)

  2. I tried out the Map my Run version just the other day. I quickly deleted it from my watch shortly after my run because it was way too buggy. The main reasons you'd have this on your watch is to keep accurate stats and to monitor your heart rate so you can control the result of your workout a bit. Unfortunately, it fails miserably in both areas. The user interface looks good, but like I said, it's totally useless to me, or, to anyone else for that matter.
