This article is part of a multi-part series about interesting APIs that were added to our directory during 2017. Entertainment, Lifestyle, and Education APIs are covered here. The APIs were chosen by our researchers, by popularity according to website traffic, and by mentions on social media.
BodyMedia provides insight into your body’s physical state through four scientific measurements. It uses a pedometer-like device to measure physical motion and steps, but also has galvanic skin response, skin temperature and heat flux measures. The BodyMedia API will give application developers access to all these metrics on your body’s recent activity. FitBit is in a similar space, but FitBit just doesn’t have as many measurements to use in its applications.
