Endomondo Life passive-tracking app launched for iPhone 5S users

Endomondo unveiled an entirely new Endomondo Life mobile app for iPhone 5S users. Available as a free download, the application relies on the smartphone's built-in M7 motion coprocessor to monitor activity throughout an entire day without draining the battery.

Endomondo Life records the number of steps an individual takes during the day, and using user's height and weight information, it calculates calories burned. Plus, there's an option to see estimated distance traveled.

When opened for the first time, Endomondo Life can automatically retrieve data from the previous seven days.When opened for the first time, the app automatically retrieves data from the previous seven days (if desired), and asks users to input their height, weight and a daily steps goal. An individual step goal is set as default, but users can select their own target.

When it comes to provided stats, users can see how close they have come to daily goals, review a week's worth of activity through easy-to-read graphs, check on overall steps for seven days, and count calories burned. And as an added feat, Endomondo Life will notify users of their performance from a current or previous day, and let people know when a step goal has been reached.

Going forward, Endomondo is looking to integrate Endomondo Life into the entire Endomondo experience which, according to the company's CEO Mette Lykke, is "all about connected fitness across devices."

As a sidenote, RunKeeper has a similar offering called Breeze and it has recently started integrating the two apps [RunKeeper and Breeze].
