Researchers at Stanford University’s Mobilize Center are using the Pebble smartwatch to study the best ways to reduce sedentary time and motivate physical activity.
Anyone with a Pebble smartwatch can participate in the study by downloading the app and answering a few questions. After that, Pebble will track your steps as usual, but you will also be sent personalized notifications through your smart-watch to encourage you to get up and move.
Your participation in the study, for as little as one week, will help Stanford Mobilize researchers gain insight into the best ways to motivate physical activity and reduce sedentary time.
You can download the MyMobilize app here, or search MyMobilize in the Pebble App store.
Note: The app does not currently work with the Pebble 2 Heart Rate Smartwatch, but we’ll be sure to post when it does.
Updated Nov. 20, 2017: The app now works with all Pebble watches, including the Pebble 2 Heart Rate Smartwatch.
