Pebble partners with Misfit
Pebble has announced a new partnership with wearable company Misfit to turn its smartwatch into a pedometer.
Today’s upgrade only requires a free Misfit watch app with no extra hardware to turn the Pebble or Pebble Steel into a pedometer that is an independent from a smartphone.
Even though there are already pedometer apps that in Pebble’s app store, Misfit is the first one to be endorsed by Pebble. An updated Misfit health-tracking app is expected to show up in the Apple App Store, which adds support for the Pebble and tracking additional metrics like distance traveled and calories burned.
