The free Helsana Trails app brings the trails right to your smartphone. It’s a navigation aid, coach and event planner all in one, making exercising even more fun.
The app shows you the routes, distances and altitude profiles of all the Helsana trails. The integrated tracking function makes it the ideal coach: it measures the distance, pace, altitude, time and calories burned for each run. On any route and for any type of training. You can view the results in the app calendar, allowing you to share and compare your daily results with your friends.
The Helsana Trails app also shows you the best attractions on and near the Helsana trails. For example, these include view points, playgrounds, places to swim and museums.
The Helsana trails are open and accessible for Helsana customers and non-customers all year round. In addition, anyone can download and use the Helsana Trails app free of charge.
No. The Helsana Trails app is also a mobile planner. It highlights many attractive activities on and off the trails (view points, playgrounds, places to swim, barbecue areas, museums and much more). In the app you’ll find important additional information about how usable a trail is in winter and how to get there. The app also tells you whether the selected route is accessible for prams and wheelchairs or is suitable for exploring by bike.
Yes. For connecting the Helsana Trails app to the Helsana+ app you receive a one-time bonus of 500 Plus points. We also reward you for running and tracking on the trails (directly via the connection or by means of submitted photo proof). We credit you with 50 points for every run of at least 30 minutes. In addition, training on the Helsana trails is counted as “Individual sport” in Helsana+ if you haven't yet used up this quota.
During the development of the Helsana Trails app, Helsana placed a strong emphasis on the lean use of data. The data is primarily used to compile your personal training statistics and enhance your running experience. When you press “Start run”, the app records (GPS) data such as location, distance, time, pace and favourites. Additional user data such as year of birth, gender, weight and height are optional and intended to supplement the training result (e.g. calories burned). The user data is stored on the basis of a user ID and is thus non-identifying for Helsana.
