At FIBO 2013 Technogym will present a new partnership with RunKeeper, the leading mobile and online fitness tracking platform via their Health Graph API.
Thanks to the Technogym Ecosystem open architecture and the new UNITY Android based console, at FIBO 2013 Technogym will present the partnership with RunKeeper, the leading mobile and online fitness tracking platform via their Health Graph API.
At FIBO 2013 show goers will be able to experience real time connectivity between Technogym equipment and their RunKeeper mobile apps.
This innovative integration enables frictionless fitness tracking from within the gym, the home, and now across any of the many types of indoor and outdoor activities that can be tracked using RunKeeper.
The Run Keeper suite of applications uses built-in GPS technology which provides users worldwide with the ability to map, record and share their exercise routes and workouts.
From now on, users with RunKeeper accounts can link and merge them with their Technogym mywellness® accounts to keep track of all of their movement and physical activity.
The Technogym Ecosystem further extends its reach beyond the facility premises by providing cutting edge technologies to automatically monitor outdoor and lifestyle activities.
The Technogym Ecosystem aims to offer operators a range of interconnected products, services, content and programs for the management of their members' wellness lifestyle wherever they are, whether inside or outside the club.
Thanks to this open platform, clubs will be able to offer their members with "wellness on the go" packages and connect with them on any Technogym equipment anywhere in world or via personal devices: mywellness® key, mobile phone, tablet, smart TV, PC, etc.
UNITY, the new ARTIS Technogym Android based cardio equipment console, is a platform open to millions of developers who will be able to use dedicated APIs to design their app. All apps will be available to operators in the Technogym App Store, the professional application Technogym developed to connect fitness and wellness operators with worldwide app developers.
End users will be able to log into UNITY and to find their own world: personal training programs, training data records, web bookmarks, social networks, etc.
Plus, UNITY is the only console in the market fitted with a web cam. This enhances user interaction with the club and with their favorite contacts by allowing them to engage on video calls while they are training.
