RunKeeper Announces App for Pebble!

Dear Backers,

Thank you for your continued support of the Pebble project. Through your tremendous backing, we have been able to get connected with an amazing app that will make your Pebble even more awesome.

We are extremely happy to announce official support for RunKeeper - the most awesome way to track your workouts! I'm told over 10 million people have used RunKeeper. The RunKeeper app uses the built-in GPS on your phone to track your progress as you run, cycle, walk, hike, and generally move around. It crunches that data and gives you statistics like speed, average pace, elapsed time and more. 

I love using RunKeeper for bike rides around Palo Alto, but I'm also excited to use Pebble + RunKeeper during some cross-country ski trips next winter! I can't wait to be able to glance down at my wrist and see instant workout data without having to dig out my phone.

We're really happy to be working with the RunKeeper team and look forward to the exciting new ways in which the Pebble might be used! 

If you're an app developer, big or small, please keep Pebble in mind. We'd love to talk to you. Developers, please sign up here so we can keep track of everyone.

Thanks,

Eric + Pebble Team

      This is a great start guys, well done. Now if you could convince the nike+ team to make an app, that would be amazing (for those of us that don't use runkeeper)

      I hope you will be able to support the Digifit exercise app also. The more third party integration you can offer the better.

      Nike+ is proprietary. I don't think they would share. ANT+ is the open standard. Garmin uses it among others.

      I used to use Runkeeper years ago but use Nike+ and Nike+ GPS instead. All of my tracking data is on Nike+ web site. Any chance for Nike + support?

      You want them to create another pledge level just so you can save 5 bucks?? 1+2=3, you've ordered two, now pledge the additional $125 for a single color... maybe they can even ship them all together for you...

    13. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Bill Grant III on May 4, 2012

      I actually am also interested in the 3 level. Usually campaigns allow for this flexibility but given the sheer numbers I want to make sure Pebble plans to allow this.

    14. Dsc_0043.small

      Creator Ruud Knoops on May 4, 2012

      How about this:

      PLEDGE $240 OR MORE
      4020 BACKERS
      Two Pebbles in any color (choose from Arctic White, Cherry Red, Voter's choice or Jet Black) Free shipping to USA. (Add $10 for shipping to Canada, $15 for international shipping.)

      And I pledge $360 instead of $240?

      Creator Howie Rayburn on May 4, 2012

      Eric and crew. I have already pledged for 2 watches, and would like to add another pledge for one more watch. Can I do this? Five is a bit much right now, but I would like to pledge for three. How can I make this happen? Thanks.

    16. Missing_small

      Creator Howie Rayburn on May 4, 2012

      I would pledge for three Pebbles. I wanted to do five, but a bit much right now. Two doesn't seem to be enough, but three would be sweet. I guess I can back one watch and that would do the trick. OK, that is what I will do.

    17. Dsc_0043.small

      Creator Ruud Knoops on May 4, 2012

      Creator Bill Grant III on May 3, 2012

      @Steve GW It's been said Windows phone does not provide adequate access with bluetooth to be supported. If Windows opens up their access, just like if Apple allows SMS information to be read, then there may be a time when Windows can be supported (either in this or future products). Of course I wouldn't suggest acquiring a product based on assumptions and guesses on future support.

      I'm hoping the MapMyFITNESS folks took notice of the announcement of the RunKeeper app, and have started work on their own app for the Pebble.
