PebbleRun was made to be used by those going out on a run or bike-ride so you know which directions to head in, have a track record of your steps, calories burned and your best time all without your phone. Initially, the user needs to set their destination on the PebbleRun app. After that, the Pebble watch will save your information for that trip for offline use and you can leave the phone at home.
The key features being implemented in this hardware hack are:
- Turn-by-turn navigation
- Fitness information (e.g. calories burned)
- Nearby restaurants/food shops near the end of the run as a reward
- Vibration feature to indicate to the user to turn left or right
