For Posting on Social Media: Relive
It's part of everyone's post gym routine to post about it on social media, right? There is absolutely no shame in that. There is however, some shame in posting the same boring photo of a sweaty selfie or your usual running route. Your followers want variety on your feed, so use Relive to give them just that! You can link it to apps like Strava, then sit back and watch as Relive creates a video plotting your route on a 3D map and also automatically includes your peak heart rate, highest elevation, top speed and any photos you took along the way.
