Haven't you always wished for an app that pays you to be healthy? Well it's here now! And it's funded by those who aren't...
What it does
Streak is an Android + Pebble app that incentivizes users to be healthy, by regularly logging their meals and working out. A common problem many users face with fitness apps is that they have to remember to log a meal, or to log their workout. Streak handles that!
As soon as the app senses that you are at your designated gym, Streak knows you've worked out and adds another day to your ongoing streak. Eating out? Streak recognizes that and will remind you on the Pebble to log your meal.
The longer you're healthy for, the better the reward. Set goals, and compete with friends. But if you break your streak however, you're paying for your friends' rewards.
How we built it
We used Pebble.js along with Android for the entire app. We also used CapitalOne's API for the rewards and payments section of the app.
Challenges we ran into
We were all first-time Pebble hackers, so it took a while to get started with development, and choosing between C and Pebble.js
Accomplishments that we're proud of
