Gym Hero makes tracking workouts easy with the Health Graph
Joyce Park stashed this in Code
Awesome interview with one of our former summer interns, Jannis! Great to get perspective on building with Runkeeper's Health Graph.
The only thing I wish is that Jannik and Jannis would just CONSIDER saying "We're going to PUMP YOU UP!!!" during interviews like this!
The people who are into quantified self are REALLY into quantified self.
Sounds like Jannik and Jannis are doing a great job of serving those people:
We both have been using Runkeeper tracking for our cardio activities for quite some time now. Being data and statistics junkies, our weight goes into the Health Graph via a Withings scale, and our blood pressure is monitored and sent to the Health Graph via a Withings blood pressure monitor. We track our runs and the bicycle commute to work with RunKeeper.
Because we also love to work out we wanted to add our gym workouts to our Runkeeper profile as well. When we heard about the Health Graph API we wanted to join. Quantify yourself!
