Health and fitness apps are a great fit for Android Wear smartwatches and two of the first out in the wild are the popular running apps from Runtastic and Runkeeper. Runtastic – in free and Pro versions – is available this very second in the Google Play Store with Android Wear support while Runkeeper seems to be in a more staggered rollout.
Runtastic was present at Google I/O so their plans to launch on Google's wearable platform were no secret. Now the doors have been officially opened, anyone who already has an LG G Watch or Samsung Gear Live on their wrists can download and take it for a run. Here's the top line on the Runtastic Android Wear application:
- Start a run or bike session via voice command
- Read your favorite stats from your wrist
- Display your post-workout session details, including maps, on Android Wear
Runkeeper isn't showing an updated changelog yet, but if you're one of the lucky ones be sure to hit us up in the comments and tell us what's what. Download both apps at the links below.
