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.
Free your endorphins!
