RunKeeper has launched a new Pebble smartphone application this week, which is compatible with both iOS and Android devices, and has been designed to turn your Prebble smartwatch into a personal trainer.
The RunKeeper application enables you to control the smartphone apps from your Pebble, so you can leave your phone in your pocket during a workout. The Pebble smartwatch then displays information such as pace, mileage, starting and stopping times on your wrist.
Jason Jacobs, CEO, RunKeeper explains:
“People are rightfully excited about wearables because they extend the experience of mobile apps like RunKeeper, so they can be enjoyed without taking your phone out of your pocket,”-”Pebble is such an exciting partner for RunKeeper; it is a great device and a powerful showcase of how your runs, walks and bike rides with RunKeeper can be enhanced by wearable device integration. We look forward to integrating with more wearable devices in the future.”
