Runkeeper is pretty decent, not sure about the elevation feature but is free and has some useful features. Basically the same a nike + but free and not a nike branded product if that kind of thing bothers you (not that it bothers me at all, I guess nike are the microsoft of the running world)
its a toss up between Runkeeper and Endomondo - i use both depending on the mood/usage/training
Runkeeper is more accurate re: mileage but sometimes the gps doesnt want to work, so i switch to endomondo and the gps is always fine. However Endomondo is less accurate with mileage, you find you are not quite running as far as it says, but its not far out.
endomondo has live tracking so people can follow you on the website, you have to buy the pro version of runkeeper to do this at about £20 a year.
with the free runkeeper you can enter workouts, intervals, and get coaching, endomondo doesnt do this.
runkeeper is easier to plot routes on that you can save as your own routes (eg if you do parkrun), plus easier to enter a run afterwards on the website if you have forgotten your phone.
with both you can export runs from the website and enter on the other if you want to use both and keep track on both.
hope all that made sense!
SmartRunner isn't bad. Basic, but does the job (distance, pace, max speed, elevation).
Not sure it does intervals though.
Saw them years ago, surely there are other bands to see?
i use endomondo....does what i need it to do.
Yeah I am a big fan of Strava.
Integrates with my garmin and is so much better at giving you PB and the most fun finding other peoples routes and seeing how you fair.
Defo recommend for a garmin user, not used the phone app though. Mate of mine moved from run keeper to strava so must be good as I realy rated RK.
