Have you ever wished that the information from your Garmin wristband could be sent directly to your own mobile application? To put it simply, this is now feasible.
Garmin is providing assistance to third-party developers with the release of the Health Companion Software Development Kit (SDK) for Android and Apple devices. When making your own app, this means being able to use real-time data from Garmin’s activity trackers and wristbands.
Wearables manufactured by Garmin generate an abundance of data. This encompasses everything from the number of steps taken and the distance travelled to the levels of stress, heart rate, and sleep. Users can be motivated to live better lives and enhance their exercise routines when such data is provided. These can now be incorporated into third-party software with only a small amount of additional effort required.
For instance, Gold’s Gym has lately capitalized on this trend by releasing an upgraded version of its mobile application in response to customer feedback. This uses a combination of audio mixes and voice guidance to keep you motivated to push yourself to your limits while working out. There are hundreds of different workouts to select from, each of which can be customized to accommodate any level of difficulty. Because this software has been integrated with the Health Companion SDK, it is now possible to display your real-time pulse rate from a Garmin smartwatch within the app itself.
According to Josh Rider, Gold’s Gym’s Senior Vice President of Revenue Management and Strategic Partnerships, “GOLD’S AMP gives customers expert instruction, coaching, and reinforcement during every phase of their exercise.”
“As we continue to improve and strengthen the experience and results from monitoring we offer inside the app, it makes sense for GOLD’S AMP to work with Garmin, which is a top provider of wearable tech,”
