Track usage of shoes and other equipment by Endomondo

Track usage of shoes and other equipment by Endomondo

Endomondo’s tags can be used for many different things – to separate training and races, running on different surfaces or weather. They can also be used to measure how worn the shoes and other equipment is.

Runstatic recently released a new feature which allows you to measure how worn your shoes are. From what I saw, it is a great thing. You can see how many kilometres you ran in the shoes and how fast you were.

The disadvantage is that it can only be used by runners. Endomondo has its own system that allows similar functions but it’s not as simple and it definitely deserves some improvement. Measuring how worn the equipment is can be done by a system of tags. You can assign unlimited tags to the workout which can represent:

  • shoes
  • clothes
  • bike
  • bike parts like chain, brake pad or bike tires

Basically, anything that comes to your mind. But there are a few catches. Tags can’t be added in the app and you have to enter them on the web manually. Normally, I tag my workouts once in a month because I don’t want to do it separetly, one by one. It’s great that I don’t change my equipment that much, so it is easy for me to remember what I used.

Display how worn the equipment is

Again, you can’t count on filtering by tags in the app. It can only be done on the web. You can do it in these two sections.

  • History
  • Statistics

From History, you get a regular list of workouts, that you completed using the equipment. But statistics are much more interesting. You can select to view the number of kilometres ran and switch to years. And now you have to count the number of kilometres manually because it can be shown year by year only. You can also view the number of hours you used the equipment for.

Endomondo Tagy - GoRun

With GoRun Skechers I runned 972 kilometres.

Endomondo Tagy - Asics

And with the Asics it is 375 kilometres for now

Unfortunatelly this function is only for premium accounts.

Do you measure how worn your shoes are in Endomondo or in a different app? Which one? Reply

Carpatia Divide 2019, day #3 – When I was crossing endless meadows

I was awake long before the alarm clock. But to have your eyes open is one thing and getting out of the sleeping bag is another. It took me half an hour of convincing to get the job done. It wasn’t easy to pack all my things, including the rescue blanket which changed from a small square to a huge piece of trash. The cold helped me with the speed.

Race 1000 Miles Adventure, day #9 – How I made it to the half

The ninth day was the last and one of the toughest. I nearly froze in Jeseníky mountains and flew over my handlebars. My landing was for zero points.
