Record your position with GPS, speed, duration, calories, gradient changes, cadence and heart rate

From the moment you press Start, Beacn begins recording your position as it changes (including a timestamp, GPS or Barometer altitude and speed), the running time, the total distance and if available: heart rate and cadence data. (with TomTom's heart rate monitor, and TomTom's Cadence sensors).

At the end of each activity you can add notes, a picture, or share it with friends on social networks.

Live tracking

Live Tracking is optional and shows your last known location along with a timestamp on a special Beacn website. This information is sent via HTTPS and only your position is stored on the server.

Unless you make it public, only someone who knows the username / password combination can access your last known location, making it completely private.

You can use this feature to let a close friend or a spouse know your location, for example, in case you go exercise alone.

Accident detection with SMS support

Detect an unusual stop in your activity and send your current location by SMS.

Works by detecting a combination of significant G forces, device attitude changes and absence of further movement. If not canceled, a SMS is sent to the configured number on your Beacn's settings.

All the data is locally stored on your device. Every feature that causes data to be sent is optional, and has to be initiated by the user.

No worries, no ads, no subscription required.
