Many of us at Nurun are very interested in wearable technology. When one of the developers in our San Francisco office was accepted into Google’s Explorer Program, we jumped on the opportunity to start working on Glassware.
The first prototype we built delivers Fitbit data to the Glass timeline using Google’s Mirror API and Fitbit’s public API. It is designed to help users reach their personal goals with timely, easily accessible micro-interactions.
The video below shows a few of the Glassware’s features including:
Other features include coaching as you near new milestones or fall behind your typical activity levels as well as alerts to changes on your leaderboard.
Glass is ideal for delivering glanceable displays of data at key moments throughout the day, adding a layer of feedback and encouragement to the Fitbit experience.
In addition to working with the Mirror API, we are experimenting with native Android applications that leverage Glass’s hardware more directly. We’ll share more about those prototypes in coming posts.
