Hi there Pebble lovers around the Globe!
Anyone trying to develop a swimming app for the Pebble watch?
I would like to introduce you http://www.UbiSwim.org/, a collaborative ubiquitous/pervasive and mobile computing system for monitoring and improving swimmers’ personal fitness & wellness.
Please watch system’s overview short video and see how it works!
This project is part of the MSc thesis in “Engineering of Mobile and Pervasive Computing Systems” of the Hellenic Open University - School of Science & Technology postgraduate student Ioannis Asproloupos under the supervision of Professor and Mentor Mr. Konstantinos Chorianopoulos.
I’m sharing the app’s source code on GitHub, trying to help anyone out there interesting in developing a swimming tracking app.
UbiSwim tracks freestyle swimming strokes and laps by incorporating gesture & direction change detection algorithms.
I would be happy to know if there is anyone interesting in swimming tracking wearable app development for any reason (commercial app, researching on swimming tracking or in any other way).
My intention is to contribute to the community by helping others build their swimming tracking app.
I know things are somehow weird now for all of us who invested valuable time on Pebble development, but I still hope my source code will help you.
Please don’t hesitate to talk to us, I’ll be very happy to get in touch and read your comments.
Ioannis (Yiannis) Asproloupos,
Pebble Developer (& lover)
