2nd Place – Carlhacks

Project Name: Wanderful

Type: Pebble Watch App

Link: http://devpost.com/software/wanderful


Wanderful allows you to take walking, biking, or driving trips to nearby areas from the convenience of your watch. We allow you, the user, to select a method of transport and an amount of time you’d like to spend on your journey. Then we create a path for you to follow, pushing directions straight to your Pebble watch. It leads you by a number of unknown waypoints in one big loop, dropping you right back off at your starting point.

The app comes with simple notifications and alerts (one vibration for a right turn, two for a left turn) that allow you to experience your surroundings far more than you need to experience the distracting light of your screens.

It also comes built in with a ‘home’ function. At any point along your trip, if you’re feeling a bit weary, you can initiate the Return Home feature by holding down the Pebble watch’s select button. This will immediately drop the remainder of your preplanned route and plot a new one for you, straight back to your initial position.
