Pacer app review: track your fitness levels with this comprehensive set of tools-2020



This is a very well-designed app which features tools enabling you to monitor details such as how many steps you’ve taken in a day, your weight, blood pressure, and general activity level, all of which are visible on a range of charts so that you can monitor your progress as your fitness levels improve.

Pacer features a wonderfully crisp and clean interface with a white and gray design, and you’ll find everything you need to set up a fitness plan, track your progress, and hold yourself accountable.

With so many fitness tracker apps out there now, it can be pretty difficult to determine which one is going to meet your needs most effectively. I like to preface some of my reviews with this because in assessing the efficacy of an app, it’s also important to gauge where it stands in the bigger picture of the App Store as a whole.

With that said, I’m pleased to say that Pacer definitely delivers the goods, and I’m absolutely in love with the interface; I think it looks fantastic.

You can input details such as your weight, blood pressure, pulse, and activity levels on a daily basis, and over time this will help you form an accurate picture of your health as a whole.

All of the data you input is visible in the Trends section which enables you to view charts of your progress on a weekly, monthly, six-monthly, or all-time basis.

These charts can be viewed in portrait or landscape mode with the tap of a button and this is excellent for providing a more tangible point of reference for evaluating your health and also how you’re coming along in terms of improve your fitness levels.

Another great feature is the Plan section which enables you to create a variety of, yep, you guessed it, plans.  Pacer's fun challenges, amazing data insights, outdoor routes, personalized fitness plans and guided workouts will help you achieve your unique fitness goals with this step counting app. Support and motivate other users who share your goals inside of the step tracking app.

If you want to design your own custom plan you’ll need to upgrade Pacer via in-app purchase, but you can use the Couch To 10K Steps plan for free, and this is ideal for getting you off your tush and moving!

One very nice feature which I almost neglected to mention is that from the Activity section, you can tap the Music icon in the top right-hand corner to create a Power Song playlist from the existing tracks in your Music Library.

A lot of attention has been paid to the details of Pacer and it definitely holds its own very well amidst the countless fitness tracker apps.
