If you’ve been following the tech gadget news much in the last year, you’ve probably heard quite a bit about smartwatches. Well, we’re thrilled to announce that RunKeeper is one of the apps available at launch on the brand new Samsung GALAXY Gear smartwatch, unveiled in Berlin today!
Providing you the guidance you need–when you need it–is something we’re very passionate about here at RunKeeper, and is why we’re so excited to be part of the GALAXY Gear. The watch directly syncs with the Samsung GALAXY Note 3 phone, and displays your time, pace, and distance continuously on your wrist, as well as the content of RunKeeper audio cues. That means you can get a constant stream of the stats you care about, without having to fumble for your phone (or wear headphones, if you chose not to!).
We were truly honored to be selected by Samsung to build an intuitive RunKeeper experience for the watch, and are so excited to see how the wearable gadgets space is heating up! We think there’s lots to be done to make fitness tracking simpler and less clunky, so that you can keep your focus on getting fit. And this is a big step in that direction!
We hope you get your hands on the watch! It retails for $299, and will be available in more than 140 countries on September 25th (and will hit the U.S. in October). More info here
