Precor and Suunto help fitness enthusiasts track their workouts from treadmill to trail

March 12, 2015 

Precor and Suunto have joined forces to integrate Preva® and Movescount, Suunto's online sports community.

The linkage allows users to access and record indoor cardio equipment-based workouts, as well as outdoor exercise in Preva after performing a one-time account sync. This makes it easier for exercisers to track progress towards fitness goals.

From treadmill to trail

"We know that people don't train exclusively in the gym or outdoors; they do both," said Kalle Laine, Suunto Digital Services Manager.

"We wanted to give fitness enthusiasts a way to track their indoor and outdoor training effectively and help them follow their progress. By connecting Movescount and Preva, exercisers can work towards their fitness goals regardless of where they train."

The linkage between Preva and Movescount creates a progressive platform to help users track towards their fitness goals and become more engaged exercisers.

At the gym, Preva automatically captures workouts on any networked Precor 880 line piece of cardio equipment and the Preva Mobile App can record strength and functional training.

For workouts outside of the gym, exercisers can sync to Preva via either Movescount.com or the Suunto Movescount Mobile App.

For workout details, users can use a Suunto sports watch to track their outdoor sport activities and obtain detailed workout information including heart rate, speed, elevation and recovery rate.

Benefits for exercisers and fitness center operators

"The ability to track exercise data is a win-win for exercisers and operators," said Jeff Bartee, Precor Principle Product Manager for Networked Fitness.

"Exercisers gain motivation and frequency of activity when they can monitor their progress towards a goal. From an operator's perspective, the more motivated and engaged an exerciser is, the more likely they'll continue to visit a facility on a regular basis."
The integration is based on automatic data transfer between Movescount and Preva and will be available during the first half of 2015.
