Pebble smartwatch gets updated with RunKeeper

Pebble smartwatch gets updated with RunKeeper

The much-anticipated collaboration between the two will bring the technology of Runkeeper to the infinitely customizable e-paper watch. Runkeeper will display speed, pace, and distance traveled on Pebble as well as workout start and stop features. Runkeeper also offers activity tracking for runs, bike rides, and walks on the smart watch similar to what users get from their smartphone supported workouts. The technology is comparable to wearable techs like the Nike+ GPS sports watch.

Runkeeper CEO Jason Jacobs says that he believes the key to cracking open a broader audience in the wearable tech market could lie in utilizing the strengths of gadgets like Pebble. Information gathered by fitness and health tracking tech tools like Runkeeper could be accessed easier on Pebble-like hardware. Jacobs says “What’s really exciting for me is that what people were expecting was that it just makes it easier to have a RunKeeper controller on your wrist.

But what they’re finding is not only can it do that, but it’s actually more powerful than an app because it’s starting to change the way they’re interacting with the data, it’s more seamless to their experience, it’s not disrupting their flow.” According to Runkeeper CEO Jacobs, the version of Runkeeper for Pebble is just a start and they are working to add more features like setting paces and distance targets on the smart watch.
