During road rides, Cyclemeter announces your progress to make sure you’re hitting your intervals on time. Back home, review your workouts with maps and graphs that chart time, distance, speed, and elevation gain. To make sure you’re progressing, compete against your past workouts with the virtual competition map (the app’s voice tells you how far behind or ahead you are) and share the results online in real time—there’s nothing like a buddy’s scorn to spur motivation. iPhone; $5
