When we created Pebble, we designed it with health and fitness in mind—making it waterproof and including an accelerometer. Since then, we’ve partnered with RunKeeper, Strava, Puma, and many more to give Pebble users a compelling health and fitness experience. We now have sleep trackers, step counters, and even swim watchapps that take advantage of Pebble’s open platform.
But we’re not standing still. Today we’re delighted to announce that Pebble and Misfit have joined forces to bring state-of-the-art activity tracking to Pebble smartwatches on wrists worldwide. Misfit, makers of Shine—a beautiful fitness and sleep monitor—have applied their expertise with user experience and algorithms to the Pebble ecosystem.
The Misfit watchapp is available today in the Pebble appstore, and lets users count steps and track their activity right from their wrists—no smartphone or Shine required. In addition, Misfit’s latest iOS app will be available from Apple’s App Store soon. It includes support for Pebble watches and tracks additional metrics such as calories burned and distance traveled.
Today’s app is just the first step towards seamless integration with Misfit and Activity tracking on Pebble. We’ll unveil additional functionality in future updates, so stay tuned! As the first milestone in an ongoing partnership and collaboration between Pebble and Misfit, we aim to provide intuitive health and fitness tracking for all.
