We know there is no such thing as an average walker
And at walkit.com we want to provide a great service to everyone: speedy walkers, leisurely walkers, those of you with legs up to your armpits, modern metric types as well as good old imperial ones, activity-trackers, step-counters, and planet-savers.
Here’s how it works
Sign up for mywalkit and we will provide you with a Profile to customise. Your Profile is the key to personalising your walkit.com experience. Tell us your walking pace, your height and weight and benefit from personalised statistics for every route you calculate on walkit.com.
You can also set a preference for how we display distances (imperial or metric) throughout our routes.
Tell us your home city and reduce the number of times you have to choose a city on the route search form!
Whenever you are logged in to mywalkit, the statistics on the route page will be personalised according to the information you have provided in your Profile.
You benefit from more accurate journey times, Calorie burns and step counts.
Using your custom data we can generate circular walks based on your specific walking pace.
mywalkit+ users benefit from two additional custom speeds. Perhaps you walk at different speeds on the way to work and on a leisurely weekend meander? Or why not tell us your jogging or running speed? Our Calorie estimates are aware of the difference between walking and running.
As a mywalkit+ user you will get personalised statistics for each of the speeds you provide on your Profile.
You’ll also notice the ‘Bank this route’ button. More on that in a moment…
mywalkit+ users also benefit from a Dashboard that displays all the walks you’ve recently planned on the site. Routes that you’ve ‘banked’ (because you actually walked them) are shown in pink, while other routes are shown in blue.
As part of an exercise plan you can also enter your weight here, and keep track of how it changes over time.
The Dashboard also provides access to all your logged walking data in chart form, and allows you to view your activity in terms of your distance walked, steps taken, Calories burned and CO2 saved
You can also view a chart of changes in your weight, if this is a priority for you.
All charts can be viewed over a week, month or a year.
