How to pair RunKeeper with your Pebble?

There are no instructions on how to set this up–it’s automatic. As long as your Pebble is connected to your iPhone, the moment you tap ‘Start Activity’ in the app it’ll send data to the watch’s screen.

A tiny watch icon will display in the top left corner of RunKeeper to note your Pebble is connected:

To pause or resume RunKeeper from the Pebble, just tap the middle button on the right side of the watch. If RunKeeper was active and you exit to the main Pebble menu, you’ll see the app listed  so you can return to it.
