News Flash: Sleep is key to health and wellness.
It seems like these days everyone is working on the sleep-fitness equation. Individuals–anyone want to code up their own health dashboard?–and major corporations (gyms, wellness programs, weight loss programs) are looking for ways to integrate sleep into their health and wellness efforts. To help them out, we’ve decided to develop an Open API so that anyone on the web can utilize the power of sleep in their application. And I’m happy to say that today, you too now can use our metrics, tools, and database to make that sweet app you’ve been dreaming about.
As if that wasn’t enough this Open API is also the next step in the direction of freeing all of your Zeo sleep data This follows on the data download feature we released last fall and on our belief that Zeo users should be able to use their data however they’d like.
First-to-Market Development of Sleep Measurement API
For the first time, developers will be able to access Zeo’s unique nightly sleep data including:
Two leading personal health resources are offering initial Alpha programs, planning to integrate Zeo’s unique sleep measurement tools into their everyday body metric systems.
These include DailyBurn, which IAC recently acquired a majority stake in and will be managed by Mindspark, and RunKeeper, a mobile fitness platform for smartphones like iPhone and Android that enables runners and other fitness enthusiasts to track, measure, and improve their fitness.
DailyBurn will add ZQ and Total Z to its body metrics tracking, allowing users to better understand the relationship between sleep and their weight loss. RunKeeper will track users’ activity and compare against nutrition, weight and sleep. Sign up here to get access: http://developers.myzeo.com/web-api/
We are excited by the possibilities for the Zeo Open API and hope to hear from you all on ways you can conceive of using this!co-founders of Zeo and company CTO. He’s passionate about keeping Zeo at the forefront of wireless health and technology, and about giving users control over their data.
