10 best fitness apps for Android

It used to be easy to tell a couch potato from a gym bunny. But nowadays even the most healthy among us has an HD screen in their pocket, and sofa surfers are as likely to move for a Wii as a wee.

Tech and pecs are no longer mutually exclusive, so which bits of fit kit should we all have on our handsets?

Despite the Nike FuelBand’s well-reported issues with Android, there are plenty of other fitness options on Google’s operating system.

Read on to witness the fitness according to TechRadar.
