Pebble E-Paper Watches Will Be Integrated with RunKeeper, Funding Surpasses $8 Million

The Pebble e-paper watch on Kickstarter has become the all-time highest backed project, and just broke $8 million in funding. The project’s leader Eric Migicovsky was born in Vancouver. Now, RunKeeper has announced details on their blog about being approached by the Pebble team–and that RunKeeper will be integrated into watches when they are available:

We are pleased to announce that, when the Pebble watches are available, they will be integrated with RunKeeper! We are also super honored to be the very first app integration partner that Pebble chose to work with. It will likely be a few months until the watches are ready, but when they are, you will be able to see your in-activity fitness data, start/stop RunKeeper, etc. right from your wrist.

This is great news. On top of this announcement, the Pebble team earlier announced the watch will be water-resistant and will include if-this-then-that ( support. Can’t wait to see how the Pebble watch evolves once developers get their hands on the SDK.

    I had to click through three IIC stories before I got to a clickable link to the actual project page on KickStarter.  I know you want to have more page views, but that’s kind of ridiculous, don’t you think?

    and with how long it actually takes to make them, considering they were only asking for, what was it a 100k
