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

Data integration allows exercisers to keep log of all of their training in one database

Amer Sports brands Precor® and Suunto today announced the integration of Precor’s Preva Networked Fitness solution and Movescount, Suunto’s online sports community, allowing exercisers to track both indoor workouts and outdoor sports activities in one place, making it easier to follow overall progress towards fitness goals.

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

At the gym, Preva automatically captures workouts on any networked Precor 880 -line cardio equipment. The Preva Mobile App can record strength and functional training. Outside the gym, exercisers can use a Suunto sports watch to record sport activities and obtain detailed information, such as heart rate, speed and distance. Depending on the watch model, workouts can be transferred to Movescount via USB cable or wirelessly using the Suunto Movescount Mobile App.

"The ability to track all 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."

Workouts are automatically transferred between Movescount and Preva after performing a one-time account sync. To find out how to activate the sync, go to Movescount.com/connect/Preva. If you don’t have a Movescount account yet, register at www.movescount.com.
