Abstract [en]

This report ranks the most popular Android apps for runners and ex- amines if sonification of heart rate is a good tool for serious runners to use the information from a heart rate monitor. This has been done by implementing an Android app that uses heart rate sonification to warn the runner when the heart rate goes outside a defined heart rate interval. The app was tested by letting three runners run with the implemented app and the highest ranked of the existing apps.

The results show that the heart rate sonification can be useful for a serious runner. The interval chosen for the tests was 140-150 bpm. The average heart rate of the runners was 153, 147 and 150 bpm. The corresponding results when the highest ranked existing app - which was Record Beater - was 163 and 162 bpm.

Abstract [sv]

Denna rapport rankar de populäraste Android-applikationerna för löpare samt undersöker om ljudsättning av puls är ett bra verktyg för en seriös löpare att utnyttja informationen från en pulsmätare. Detta har gjorts genom att implementera en Android-app som genom ljudsättning av puls varnar löparen när pulsen går utanför ett angivet pulsintervall. Appen har testats genom att låta tre löpare få springa med den implementerade appen samt den högst rankade av de existerande apparna.

Resultaten visar på att ljudsättning av puls kan vara användbart för en seriös löpare. Intervallet som valdes för testerna var 140-150 slag/minut, där medelvärdet för pulsen hos löparna var 153, 147 och 150 slag/minut. Motsvarande resultat den högst rankade existerande appen Record Beater var 163 och 162.
