Garmin now has apps, believe it or not. If you’re looking for a head start this year on weight watching, Garmin has an app for that. The company released last week the Garmin fit app which tracks speed, pace, distance, time, calories, and with the addition of Garmin’s ANT+ accessories, heart rate and cadence. The app also maps out the user’s workout and uploads it directly to Garmin Connect, all for $.99. Crazy! The up-side to the Fit app is that it never stops working, even if you have to take a call or write a text. A single tap displays all your basic metrics, including time, distance, pace and calories. Users will also be able to control their music from within the app. Once you’ve thrown in the towel on your workout, the Fit app will let you give notes on the experience and input details, at which point all the information is sent straight to Garmin Connect. From there, users can track their overall performance and improvements over the last 30 days. The Garmin Fit app is available now as a $.99 download from both the Apple App Store and the Android Market.
