Despite the popularity of dating apps in recent years it seems there’s something missing.
Apps like Tinder and Bumble have reduced “dating” to a lot of swiping and impersonal matching that rarely winds up in anyone actually meeting.
Could your preferred heart rate actually be the key to your heart? Their promise is to match you up with other people who are similarly obsessed with exercise — or as terminally lazy — as you are.
Created by Edward Chen and launched last month, Lime is the first dating app to use data from your i OS health app to asses your activity level.
Thanks to the fitspo craze, people wear their fitness (or lack thereof) as a primary identifying factor – which is actually super helpful in weeding out incompatible dates, and now there is a way to make sure they are completely removed from your radar.
Lime is a new dating app which uses data generated from Apple’s Health app or Google’s Fitness app and matches potential dates based on their active or sedentary lifestyle.
These requests are for simple activities, like grabbing a bite to eat or a cup of coffee.
Lime is a real-time, location based dating app that encourages meeting each other instead of sitting on your couch messaging endlessly and never going out. By pressing the Go button users instantly see their potential matches within their vicinity.
On the flip side, if you're a fitness-tracker diehard who does a daily 12K steps or bust, you can log onto Lime and find someone to share those long walks — preferably on the beach.
Mashable reports that Lime — which launched last month and already has about 5,000 users — is the first app to find you potential dates based on data from your i OS Health app.
The Lime dating app also uses location to encourage meetups.
If two potential matches are close by (distance is measured in steps) a "Go" request can be sent.
Creator Edward Chen told Mashable that dating someone whose activity level matches yours "gives you a lot more to talk about, but also more activities to do together.""I use the Apple Health App quite often to compare my steps with my friends'," Chen added in an interview with The Huffington Post.
