Open Access to fitness tracker platform
Access to an open, non-proprietary app development platform will now be provided by Salutron, providing consumers greater choice in connecting to services and storing data.
The open API platform supports applications for Android 4.3 or newer and iOS 5 or newer and all current and future LifeTrak activity trackers with Bluetooth Smart Connectivity.
The latest LifeTrak activity monitors incorporate technology and design to capture, hold and wirelessly transmit health-related data to Bluetooth Smart-enabled devices, including smart phones and laptop computers. Unlike other activity trackers compatible with dedicated apps, LifeTrak activity trackers are currently compatible with popular applications such as Argus and MapMyFitness, and, through this announcement, are anticipated to be compatible with multiple additional future applications.
