For the past 3 years, RunKeeper, a popular running app, has managed to attract a massive user base of 6 million fitness enthusiasts and counting on iOS, Android and Windows platforms. Since January 2010, RunKeeper’s has experienced a whopping 467% user growth. In June, RunKeeper opened up its Health Graph API to collect a vast amount of health data from users and 3rd party apps like FitBit, Zeo and Withings.

Imagine a system that can identify correlations between a user’s eating habits, workout schedule, social interactions and more, to deliver an ecosystem of health and fitness apps, websites, and sensor devices that really work, based on a user’s own historical health and fitness data. The Health Graph has the potential to completely alter the health and fitness landscape,” said RunKeeper CEO Jason Jacobs.
