Quantifying your fitness – focused on devices with APIs Talk about integration points, opportunities, and where the industry lags
Connecting things - used to be wires/electricians/very hard Adding/changing things: just as expensive as the first one Philips Hue - SkyMall/Sharper Image (remember the slow wake up lights, the stock market mood lamp?) One bulb to turn different colors based on the stock market another to reflect the quantity of tweets about your company Alarm for waking with light - could be improved…
A zillion Most popular APIs and integrations Example integrations you can use with newer ones
Fitbit, Body Media, Jawbone, Withings, Basis, Pebble
Fitbit - Their API is fantastic and they provide strong developer support. Limited biometrics (accellerometer) but great syncing (passive) via smart phone or bluetooth dongle Many different types (force was recalled) Tell it you’re sleeping
Fitbit dashboard Steps, calories, some sleep data Community, friends, badges, fun stuff
Seriously? That’s not the kind of dancing I do. Not crowd sourced. If I add zumba you have to too. Do you know how many calories you burn with every activity? Do you want to input it manually?
Yeah. MyFitnessPal has a much better crowdsourced database of foods. Drawbacks Too many entries for the same thing Integration at the calories/day thing (protein, produce)
Awkward Itchy Must remove from strap to charge 5,000 data points per minute (most not exposed via API) API reduced in scope when combined with Jawbone to match Jawbone’s input data Auto sleep detection Used to be the only device approved for FDA trials, but not certain that Jawbone has that as a goal
Charges via headphone port No website for input API too limited to make good website (graphs, charts) Smartphone interface Tell it you’re sleeping
The Withings pulse is an ok tracker Manual heart rate Accurate for steps Cute but not overly useful display API is decent for weight, not so great for other measurements. Very strange status codes in the response though. They don’t use HTTP status codes. The scale is an excellent tool to use for overall tracking of weight and fat percentage Integrations are cool - Runkeeper, Myfitnesspal, Fitbit. Easy API to integrate, uses OAuth.
pulse Also have BP monitor, baby monitor and coming soon a pretty stylish watch/activity tracker
No API yet (but purchased by Intel who has Mashery Exception in API rules because it is awesome in ways that others aren’t Resting heart rate Amazing charts and graphs Totally ambient information Encourages and tracks new habits based on your behavior
Not so much an API as SDK Write code in C … but it’s got an accelerometer If all you want is an accelerometer that can have apps...
Use your iPhone Sucks battery like no tomorrow Excellent ambient tracker - no effort by the user (which will kill your battery but is still cool) Very basic but ok api
Apple HealthKit - should work even with apps that don’t have a direct API, as it will enable developers to create integrations into it themselves.
Fitbit - Their API is fantastic and they provide strong developer support. Their inputs beyond steps aren’t very strong, however - food input is pretty limited, activities are quite odd.
RunKeeper HealthGraph - a great idea. Holds a ton of biometric information, much more than run keeper itself offers, including food, sugar levels, heart rate. But it hasn’t gotten much traction.
Immature industry Recent trends disappointing Need much better integration/nutrition Biometric sensors need improvement/excellent APIs Think about Big Data implications, even with a single user
