Now on Android – Pebble and Jabra Pulse Support, and More!

Pebble
A few months ago, we announced our Pebble integration on iOS. The response was great, so we’re really excited to announce that we now also support Pebble on Android, along with some other cool features in the latest Android release – version 10.5.

Pebble on Android:
Connecting your Endomondo app with a Pebble watch is easy. Simply go to ‘Settings’ in the app , then ‘Smartwatch’ and then ‘Pebble’ to connect with your Pebble.

Our Android app for Pebble lets you start, pause or stop a workout while exercising, just like the iOS version. You’ll be able to control the app directly from your Pebble watch without having to reach for your phone. The app will also display up to three different stats on your Pebble, such as distance covered, heart rate or workout duration. Your Endomondo app sends vibrating alerts to your Pebble at a given distance or duration you’ve covered (same intervals as your audio settings), and will briefly display a performance summary.

Endomondo and Jabra Pulse:
We’ve integrated our app with the Jabra Pulse headset to help you enjoy your beats as well as all your Endomondo stats at the touch of a button. To connect your headset to your app, simply go to your app settings, then click on ‘Accessory settings’ and then turn ‘Headset Controls’ on (make sure you’ve enabled Bluetooth on your phone, and paired it with the headset).

Once you’ve connected your Jabra Pulse with your app, you’ll be able to start, pause and resume a workout by pressing the ‘Sports’ button on your Jabra Pulse headset. With one quick tap of the ‘Sports’ button, you’ll get the data that’s on your Endomondo app workout screen read out loud instantly. If you want to hear different stats, just change the fields that appear on the screen by tapping on them. When using the Jabra Pulse, you’ll also be able to get the HR data from your workout on your app.

If you’re planning to get a Jabra Pulse on Jabra.com soon, you’re in luck – we’re giving you a year of Premium membership with the purchase of a new Jabra Pulse headset!

New Challenge feature:
Aside from integrating with these great wearables, we’ve also added the option to create your own challenges directly in the app, so you can motivate your friends with a little friendly competition. But stay tuned for full coverage on this awesome new feature in an upcoming post!

We hope you enjoy using Endomondo on all the newest and neatest devices, and that you get even more motivated with our latest features.

Here, There and Everywear – Endomondo is Now on Android Wear!

Blog_Android_wear
Many of you have been eagerly questioning us about integration with Android Wear. It’s time to get your answers. Today, we are delighted to announce a massive update, which aside from Android Wear integration, also includes another coveted wearable integration – Samsung Gear S – as well as some cool new Android app features.

Android Wear:
First off, let’s jump right in to our Android Wear integration.  Android Wear support is included in the free version of our app. To make it work, you just need to pair the Smartwatch via the Android Wear app.

There are several ways to start a workout on Android Wear. You can either:

  1. Scroll down to the three-dot menu, select the Endomondo app and hit the start button,
  2. Start the workout on your phone, press the notification you get on your Android Wear when it pops up and swipe to the “Open” button, or
  3. Use the nifty Voice Activation feature and say “Start Endomondo”, “Start a workout”, “Start a bike ride” or “Start a run”.

On Android Wear, you can swipe between three display pages, and each of them can show up to 2 different stats. To define the stats, access your Endomondo app settings, select “Smartwatches”, and choose Android Wear to define zones on your display.

Samsung Gear S:
After introducing Samsung Gear Fit, Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo integration, we are adding support for yet another member of Samsung wearable tech family: Samsung Gear S!

Samsung Gear S lets you start, pause or stop a workout while your Endomondo app is running in the background. You can swipe between three page displays and each of them can show up to three different stats, such as heart rate, distance, speed or workout duration. To change our default settings and configure which stats you would like to see, access Smartwatches in your Endomondo app settings. Gear S not only measures your heart rate, it can then show this data in your Endomondo app and on your Gear S display. The sensor, located on the backside of the watch, sends the heart rate data to the Endomondo app, but this can be disabled if you prefer to use a heart rate strap instead.

To make the Endomondo app “talk” with your Samsung Gear S, you need to download the Gear Manager app, access Samsung Gear Apps and install the Endomondo Sports Tracker for Gear app. This app could only be linked to one Android app, which means that our PRO users must use our Free app when using Gear S! But fear not – when you download the Free version and log in with the account associated with your PRO app, all your PRO features will be automatically unlocked.

FYI, the Android Wear app offers Heart Rate data support for the Smartwatches that have built-in heart rate monitors (currently Motorola Moto 360 and Samsung Live).

New Training plan creation wizard and overview:
Creating a Training Plan is easier than ever. When you select Training Plan from the menu, you’ll find the Training Plan creation wizard, which explains how the plans work. We’ve also added a new training plans overview to provide you with better information about your training.

Twitter sharing from the app:
Tweet your workouts effortlessly. You can now share your individual workouts to Twitter right from the Android app or set auto-sharing of your workout at the start or the end of a workout. You can do so from the social screen after you stop your workout or access the app’s Connect and Share settings and tap  ‘Manage Twitter sharing’:

Android users, we hope you get a kick out of our latest update! Now, you have even more wearable options to pair with the app and new features to keep you going strong. We have another Android wearable integration in the works, so stay tuned for more on that coming up!

Endomondo Sports Tracker Integrates With Android Wear and Samsung Gear S

Continuing Strong Wearable Development in 2014, Endomondo’s Fitness App Expands Reach to More Devices and Users

COPENHAGEN, Denmark – Oct. 8, 2014 – After releasing updates earlier this year for Samsung Gear Fit and Gear 2, Garmin, TomTom and Pebble iOS users; the popular Endomondo Sports Tracker app now integrates today with Android Wear devices, as well as the Samsung Gear S smartwatch.

The free Android Wear update delivers a total of six real-time fitness stats across three screens. A simple swipe lets users move through data, and information can be assigned to different pages with ease. Further, the integration allows people to easily start/pause/stop a workout while on the go.

The Samsung Gear S integration works similarly, but allows users to select between a total of nine configurable stats such as speed, distance or workout duration. Additionally, the built-in Gear S heart rate monitor can now supply data to Endomondo. Read more

Get Ready for Gear 2! Support for Samsung Gear 2 is Now Available.

 

whats_new_gear2

After we announced Samsung Gear Fit integration, we got a LOT of questions regarding when we would release Gear 2 support. Well, have no fear, Gear 2 support is here! We’ve just finished working out the kinks and are happy to reveal that the integration is operating smoothly.

The update includes support for Samsung Gear 2 Neo as well. For a list of supported devices, scroll down here.

Samsung Gear 2 lets you start, pause or stop a workout while your Endomondo app is running in the background. You can swipe between three page displays and each of them can show up to three different stats, such as heart rate, distance, speed or workout duration. To change our default settings and configure which stats you would like to see, access Smartwatches in your Endomondo app settings (as long as you have updated your app to version 10.3.1).

Unlike Gear Fit, which doesn’t feature heart rate monitoring, Gear 2 can both measure your heart rate and then show this data in your Endomondo app and on your Gear 2 display. The sensor, located on the backside of the watch, sends the heart rate data to the Endomondo app, but this can be disabled (from version 10.3.1 and up) if you prefer to use a heart rate strap instead.

How to make it work:
To make Endomondo app “talk ” with your Samsung Gear 2, you need to download Gear Manager app, access Samsung Gear Apps and install the Endomondo Sports Tracker for Gear 2 app. We could only link this app to one Android app, which means that our PRO users must use our Free app when using Gear 2!

Want to snap some pics of your workout? Gear 2 has got you covered. Samsung Gear 2 has a camera (though Gear 2 Neo does not), so you can take pictures while exercising and add them afterwards to your workout on your phone. To do this, you need to do it in the Endomondo app after the workout is completed.

We hope you enjoy tracking with your new Gear and Endomondo!

Android 9.3.1. Brings Full Screen Graphs and Design Improvements

Endomondo on Android

The last Endomondo app release of 2013 goes to our Android users – vers. 9.3.1.

Premium and PRO users on Android can enjoy full screen graphs with speed, altitude and heart rate data (see picture below). This feature is coming on iPhone in January 2014.

The rest of the new features are available for all users. We made new main menu navigation. Our graphic designers touched up some of the app icons and added a bit of color to them, which is visible on the picture as well. News feed has also been given some attention and made nicer with Maps inline. The improved layout is especially noticable on larger phone screens or tablets.

From this version on, we require mobiles to have at least Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). Older Android phones can still download and use version 9.2.2.

Android 9.3.1
