Pryv is excited to announce its partnership with Misfit Wearables, an innovative wellness and health tracking company founded in 2011 by Sonny Vu with John Sculley, the former CEO of Apple. Misfit users may now collect, unite, explore and share their data selectively and at a glance on Pryv.
Pryv empowers users of the Misfit Shine, an activity and sleep tracker. Pryv enables its users to connect their Misfit data with other streams from their digital life, from Twitter, Google Glass, Facebook, Evernote, and over 120 other services, all into an insightful interface. Users can choose to host their data on servers in the location of their choice, be it in the US, Switzerland, France, or Hong-Kong, for maximum privacy and control. Advanced users can also upload pictures, notes, locations, numerical values and .csv files.
“Our close partnership with Misfit means we can offer our users completely new insights into their digital life,” says Frederic Mauch, co-founder of Pryv. “They’ll get a customized view of how their steps affect their mood, how their performance affects the number of pics they take, and discover countless other correlations between their Misfit data and their other lifestyle streams. It’s a game-changer.”
“For me and many of my fellow Misfit Shine users, Pryv is the sharing solution we’ve been waiting for” says Pierre-Mikael Legris, co-founder and CTO of Pryv. “I can now selectively share a snapshot of my health data with my coach, doctor and friends. On Pryv, your data is yours, and it’s the only multi-source life-logging solution that’s HIPAA certified.”
Pryv is offering 2 years of service (an $80 value) to the first 1000 registered users coming through Misfit, using the following registration link: http://py.cx/misfit
