Android + Pebble app for timing my morning run
RunStone works like a stopwatch.
During my run, it drives the built-in Sports app of my Pebble smartwatch (via the PebbleKit Sports API), updating the "Duration" display and handling the pause/resume button.
With my headphones plugged into my phone, it also provides text-to-speech audio feedback, announcing the elapsed time at one-minute intervals.
Compared to the alternatives I tried before building this:
- RunKeeper demanded that I create an account so their proprietary service could suck up my data, including location information. I wasn't comfortable with this and don't actually need a historical record of my runs or analytics or whatever.
- RunnerUp refused to start timing without the GPS enabled and made me wait for it to get a fix on a certain number of satellites. Then it died every couple of minutes during my run, I think due to losing the GPS lock.
- ForRunner didn't sync to my Pebble.
- AAT's interface was unintuitive and I couldn't get it to work at all. I'd start a run but the timer wouldn't budge from zero.
That's all. One screen, one switch.
