    Hi, today I was experimenting with Google Fit!, it ask for a lot of things like "Google location history" and force the GPS stay "on" all time (or at least that is what I got in the explanation) I don't want all those options "on" all day, just when I go to run, but is annoying be switching between the off and on mode every day...
    Plus, when I returned to home I checked my route in Google Maps and was way inaccurate... anyways, seems that the distance is very good (maybe cuz it use the pedometer?) steps and running time are fine (I guess), but at the end I don't find the app very intuitive, and I would like have something simple and functional like: count steps, running and waking time, distance and why not a map tracking (a good tracking, not like google fit that just show me a weird travel, inclusive the half of my real travel...)
    I saw there is "Runtastic", "S Health" and other apps, which one you recommend to me?
    Thanks and sorry if my english is messy :P

    I have used Runtastic for the past 2 years and it is a great app. The voice coach feature is absolutely brilliant (I set it to tell me my speed/pace/time every kilometre)

    Thanks buddy (I made the post and I forgot to sign in my phone...again lol), today I was testing S Health and Runtastic (Google Fit too) and seems that S Health and Runtastic works very well, I like that S health counts your steps, but Runtastic was really accurate in my route, almost perfect (I saw the map), so, tomorrow I'll test both apps again and I will decide which one I take; I would like steps count in Runtastic but anyways is great and the maps tracking is all I was looking for.
    Otherwise, Google Fit doesn't work with Location History off :/, today It said I did "0 steps" when I made 5,76 km (3,6 miles approx) I will test it again tomorrow and I will see if it is accurate or not like the rest.
    One thing that is really cool in Google Fit is that it recognize when you are walking or running, and seems that S Health and Runtastic need to be manually activated, but maybe thats why they are really accurate (specially Runtastic)
