Runtastic and Wahoo Fitness Announce Life Fitness App Integration at CES
January 08, 2013 // Category: Events
The Life Fitness team is hitting the floor of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this morning, learning all about the hottest fitness technologies and showing off our new open platform products.
Two influential developers in the fitness app industry, Runtastic and Wahoo Fitness, will be giving demonstrations of their app’s functionality, improvements and integration with Life Fitness products in their CES booths.
We’ve shipped Discover series treadmills with tablet consoles to Vegas so that show-goers can experience real-time updates of their workout statistics on Runtastic and Wahoo Fitness apps. Life Fitness is the first and only fitness equipment manufacturer to offer products with an open API. That means any fitness app developer in the world can access a portion of our code to create apps that work with our equipment.
These treadmills are also the only equipment with Android compatibility, but enough about us. Let’s talk about these awesome apps.
The runtastic app is designed to help exercisers track their sports activities and connect with friends who are also using the app. Users can then create profiles on runtastic.com to cheer friends on, share photos, keep track of exercise stats, log run or biking routes and more. runtastic’s integration with Life Fitness and new fitness hardware offerings will be on display at the runtastic booth, South Hall 26508.
Wahoo Fitness is a running and cycling app that tracks fitness data from Wahoo sensor products like the Wahoo Run/Gym Pack, Blue HR Strap, Balance iPhone-powered Scale and KICKR PowerTrainer. With Life Fitness integration, Wahoo Fitness users will be able to track data from their indoor cardio workouts, in addition to their outdoor workouts. The Wahoo Fitness app for Life Fitness will be on display at the Wahoo Fitness booth, South Hall 26525.
So, if you’re attending CES 2013, make sure to stop by and see us at the Runtastic and Wahoo Fitness booths. In addition to seeing our open technology in action, you’ll be one of the few people in the world who has had a chance to try our Discover tablet consoles first-hand.
