HIIT, or high-intensity interval training, is a training technique in which you give all-out, one hundred percent effort through quick, intense bursts of exercise, followed by short, sometimes active, recovery periods. This type of training gets and keeps your heart rate up and burns more fat in less time.
I created the concept of this app to replace simple interval timers, and build one that really served the purpose of keeping up with this kinds of routines.
Following, a bit of the development ideas and what makes the app unique.
The way this workout works, requires much more than measuring time and heartbeats. The difference between low and high intervals, the constant switching of the level of steepness and speed, has the user alert and entertained.
The HIIT App can handle all these variables in both its Phone or Watch version, with the simplicity that new technologies, sensors and interfaces allow.
The app has a powerful editor capable of creating routines not just for runners, but for all kinds of sports and fitness activities. The user’s routines are synced on the cloud, so you can use them on any other device or your watch right away.
A simpler, yet powerful version of the app allows the user to make the most of your training inside a very small screen. The person can effortlessly track his timing, heartbeat and routines; get sensorial responses when its time to switch speeds or modes, change the music and log all of this into the phone app without ever pulling the phone out.
H.I.I.T. App was designed to have similar elements, on screens with much differences in size and interactivity. The user can quickly get familiar with the phone app, and the watch app will feel like a natural extension of it, but at no point is necessary that they both are used at the same time.
HIIT App will be available on the App Store in Q1 2017
