Summer is officially upon us! It’s prime season for runners all over to enjoy sunny days and train for races coming up on the calendar. This summer, with our friends at The San Francisco Marathon, we’re taking running events to a new level—launching both a mobile app and Pebble app—tailored specifically for registered marathon participants and fans of this year’s race on Sunday, 27 July. The official SF Marathon mobile and Pebble apps are coming soon. Stay tuned for more!
For those interested in giving their race prep a jolt of wearable tech awesomeness, registered runners can take $20 off per Pebble at getpebble.com. TSFM Blog subscribers can join the fun too, with $10 off per Pebble ordered, starting today.
Thanks to popular sport apps in the Pebble appstore, Pebblers the world over have turned our watch into their wrist-top tracker and coach of choice. It’s never been easier to manage workouts or race training with Pebble!
Track Your Runs
Popular running apps like RunKeeper, iSmoothRun (iOS), AeroTrackerPro (Android), RunTastic Pro, and PumaTrac give you easy access to your performance stats as you run. Monitor pace, distance, and time—all on your wrist. You can even challenge yourself to run between two cities with the Run the World app!
