02 Week viewActivity-tracking app Moves has always been able to automatically detect walking, running, cycling and movement by motorized transport, but a new update for the iPhone today brings with it support for more than 60 new activity types.

While users will have to manually label time spent on these activities for now, developer Protogeo plans to add automatic tracking for as many of these as it can in the future, based on the user data it receives. So, whether you’ve been gym training, paintballing, rollerblading, swimming or practically any other activity you can think of, Moves will now let you keep track of it. The development cycle of the Android version is a little behind the iOS app, so we’d expect the feature to hit Google’s platform in the not too distant future.
