ePlay Digital’s Klocked Platform testing new “run buddies” feature with all users
ePlay Digital Inc. (CSE:EPY | OTC:EPYFF | FSE:2NY2) (the “Company”) today announced that Klocked’s revolutionary augmented reality fitness app is trialing new “Join Live” with users that download the latest update from the Apple App Store. The “Join Live” feature is available at the bottom of the Home page and allows users to see what is happening in the Klocked community in real-time and “Join Live”. See somebody you know? Want to run with somebody already on course in Paris? Join live and let Klocked know what you think at www.klocked.me.
Klocked is looking for ways to use its platform to help motivate and make fitness fun. Users may have to rush to get their sneakers and gear on when they want to join somebody in Klocked World. There are two “Join Live” options: 1. teleport to catch up to the new run buddy or 2. join from the start line. In either case, audio cues will let runners know what’s going on with the “Join Live” participants.
“Running with friends is great - strangers too. That’s hard in the best of times and a pandemic is not the best of times,” says Trevor Doerksen, CEO of ePlay Digital and co-creator of Klocked fitness app. “I hope Klocked Join Live helps us get out there more, go longer, faster, and meet new people. In the real world or Klocked World, I’m pretty motivated to catch up and join others.”
Klocked’s adaptive music, pre-race and in-race coaching, and the P4 AI performance-enhancing audio cues plus special “Join Live” audio features will help improve training and race-day performance. Real-time evaluation is powered by Klocked P4 AI and Weav Music's performance-enhancing adaptive music & AR coaching technology.
ePlay announced earlier this week the release of the Fan Freak sports app. Fan Freak allows sports fans to build teams, streaks, and win cash prizes. Fan Freak includes NHL, NFL, MLB, NBA, and NCAA Football. Fan Freak is 3 games-in-one and allows users to earn prizes and points. The app will be available as a public beta with real cash prizes starting today, Jan. 14, 2022 at 4:15 PM ET.
Klocked Berlin 5k
Klocked Fitness App has opened registration for the Berlin 5k Hybrid Real-Time Race Experience and Virtual Run taking place on Jan. 16, 2022, at 10:00 AM eastern time / 7:00 AM pacific time.
Klocked hint: races are fun live, but not necessary. The Berlin 5k is open for 12 hours after the gun goes off.
All real-time and virtual participants will receive physical and digital race t-shirts, digital finisher’s medals, augmented reality race bib, and placement recognition for overall and division winners. Klocked app participants will be able to choose between teleporting to Berlin for the real-time race experience or the virtual run anytime in January. Klocked users will personalize and send their 3D avatar to Berlin on race day to compete live in ePlay’s vision of the sports metaverse - Klocked World.
