We are able to keep up with all this data with the help of Health Kit. Which is where all the data all the fitness data from the watch is stored. The accelerometer on the watch combines the heart rate monitor, pedometer and movement monitor to tell you how many how fast you were moving, how far you went and how many calories you've burned.

Our Goal

Did you have a Tamagotchi when you were younger? We know a lot of people who did. People loved getting to take care of it. When we were brainstorming ideas for how to get out there and motivate someone to exercise, we thought, what about a pet? And thus Pet Steps was born! Pet Steps is the virtual pet conveniently located on your wrist via the Apple Watch. Enjoy seeing your pet grow while maintaining your health!

If you want to download Pet Steps we have provided all the Xcode files so you can do that.


We want to show the process of developing this app and to do that we have made all our documents from Capstone available to you here.

Project Presentations

We present these projects in front of our class every month and our first presentation was our project proposal. We presented our final presentation at SLAM.

We created a beta presentation this semester and here is the IPhone and Apple Watch
