iWatch Heart Rate Monitor with Twitter Fabric, EON, Raspberry Pi @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi
Great project + write-up from Lizzie Siegle up on PubNub.
Since last July when I first developed for the Apple Watch, I have watched this wearable struggle to rise in popularity. Although it is just an extension of the iPhone, on which it relies heavily, some of its features are fun for both users and developers. HealthKit gives developers access to fitness data, like heart rate and number of steps. While your step count can be a good measure of fitness, it is a measurement best analyzed at at the end of the day because that number takes time to grow. On the other hand, heart rate is more of a realtime statistic.
