Today RunKeeper, a fitness integration application, announced that it has partnered with eight more health and fitness apps.

These applications have integrated with RunKeeper’s Health Graph API, which launched its alpha release in June 2011 and is currently still in its alpha phase.

Health Graph allows users to combine data from the RunKeeper app with other health and fitness apps. This organizes the user’s workout data, diet and sleep habits, and social interactions by displaying them in charts and graphs that can be shared with others.

The new applications that are partnering with RunKeeper are:

  1. The first app that RunKeeper announced it is partnering with is Jog Log, which is an iPhone application that lets users track their fitness activities, such as running, via GPS.
  2. iSmoothRun was also added to the Health Graph, enabling consumers to use their iPhone as a multisport training aid.
  3. In order to track how far the user has swum, Swim Converter was added to the Health Graph.
  4. WeightConnect was also added as a means of connecting weight measurements to a RunKeeper account.
  5. In order to add a little fun to its users’ fitness goals and turn working out into a game, RunKeeper has added Fitocracy to its partners.
  6. Another application that was added is Arookoo, which motivates its users to get up and move around their city by sending them on challenges.
  7. As a means of taking a consumer’s blood pressure and updating this data in the Health Graph, Withings Blood Pressure Monitor has been added to RunKeeper.
  8. Finally, as a way to share all of this information with friends or people who visit their sites, the Fitness Widget Generator creates a widget that displays users’ activities.

RunKeeper has also announced that it will be launching a partnership with three more apps in the next few weeks and is in the process of integrating with hundreds of other apps.
