And the 1st Pebble app partner is…

Have you guys been following the Pebble story? It is a crazy one. They dreamed of building a smart watch compatible with iPhone and Android devices, so you can view and interact with your favorite mobile apps right from the watch display.
Pretty cool, right? We thought so too. As it turns out, so did 53,094 others (as of 5/2/12) who have contributed to the project on Kickstarter. This helped them become the most popular Kickstarter project ever, and raise almost $8m so far (with more than 2 weeks left to go).
Well, when Pebble approached us about integrating with RunKeeper, we loved the idea. We know that many of you are always looking for ways to make your fitness tracking easier, and with Pebble integration, you won’t ever have to pull the phone out of your pocket or armband - you can just see and do everything you need right from your watch (which connects with the phone via bluetooth). Not to mention that quite a few of you have been requesting it in our support forum as well.
We are pleased to announce that, when the Pebble watches are available, they will be integrated with RunKeeper! We are also super honored to be the very first app integration partner that Pebble chose to work with. It will likely be a few months until the watches are ready, but when they are, you will be able to see your in-activity fitness data, start/stop RunKeeper, etc. right from your wrist.
We hope that you are as excited about the Pebble smart watches as we are!
The RunKeeper Team
