RunKeeper Review

RunKeeper is a website and an application that tracks your training activity. I like the interface, it's nice a clean and I like the way they show your weight right on the profile page. It does however seem to lack some of the features that make tracking websites interesting to be on.


  • Interesting analysis of your activity (requires an upgrade)
  • Challenges. Website such as Strava and MapMyFitness offer ways to compare your results, either with segments or total mileage challenges, that offer a competitive element.

The main reason I had to give up prematurely was the fact that it doesn't allow mass uploads of your Garmin data. I have a Garmin 910XT and I don't have the patience to select each individual workout. Seems crazy they wouldn't have figured this out.

I will update this if I'm alerted of changes but for now this won't be my application of choice for uploading my exercise data.
