Sometimes, being fashionably late is a good thing. Especially when it means polishing yourself up a little bit more. Pebble smartwatch users have been clamoring for an Endomondo integration, that would give them all the benefits of our app while using their Pebble and leaving their phone in their pocket. With our latest iOS update, we’ve now added Pebble integration. Endomondo’s app for Pebble syncs with iPhone 4S and all iPhone 5 models. Download Endomondo’s Pebble app from the Pebble appstore and try it now.
We made a short video to show you the integration in action. Check it out:
To sync Endomondo data between a Pebble device and your iPhone, simply go to ‘Settings’ in the Endomondo app to connect with a Pebble device. Make sure that you have the most recent Endomondo iPhone app version (9.2.0).
Control within your reach: Endomondo’s app for Pebble lets you start, pause or stop a workout while exercising. No need to reach for your phone – control the app directly from your Smartwatch! The app can also display up to three different stats, such as distance traveled, heart rate or workout duration.
Feel the vibe: the Endomondo app gives vibrating alerts on the Pebble at each mile or kilometer you’ve covered, and will briefly display a performance summary for the distance. We’ll extend this feedback for each lap within a few months.
Our Android users should be on the lookout for Pebble support later this year. We’re on it, so keep checking back!
Aside from Pebble Integration, we’ve worked on amping up some iOS app features:
Improved voice for audio feedback
We’ve improved the quality of audio feedback – the audio coach has a smoother, more natural voice thanks to the fact that we switched to iOS built-in speech synthesis. Audio coach is now available in English and Danish, and we plan on adding more languages in upcoming releases.
Workout maps included in the news feed
The News feed has become more vibrant – workout maps for most distance-based workouts have been added, so you can see where your friends were working out right in the news feed.
Full-screen photo slider
Yet another feature to make your news feed even more vivid is that you can now view pictures your friends have attached to their workouts in full-screen. If there’s more than one picture, you can simply swipe between them.
Improved GPS status indicator
We changed the way the GPS status indicator works so that it reacts much faster. So, if you get a GPS fix, it will take much less time to reflect that by turning the GPS status indicator from red to green. Additionally, the indicator is now more reliable – it only turns green if you have a good fix.
We hope you enjoy the latest iOS app features and Pebble integration.
Have fun freeing your endorphins!
