GoWild Presents as Keynote Speaker at Garmin’s Annual Developer Conference

Chris Gleim presents at Garmin's headquarters. 


OLATHE, Kan.—The co-founder of the social media and activity tracking platform, GoWild, spoke of the importance of autonomy and experiential data in a keynote presentation at Garmin’s
Connect IQ Developer Summit on Thursday.

The conference was hosted by Garmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), at its headquarters in Olathe, Kan. The Summit hosted developers from around the world, enabling them to network with industry leaders and learn about the latest Garmin technology. Additional presenters were Spotify, New York Yacht Club American Magic, and DC Rainmaker.

“GoWild and our Connect IQ integration empowers an audience that is often ignored by big tech,” said GoWild Co-Founder and Chief Development Officer, Chris Gleim. “To present it here to both hunters and nonhunters, and still see a broad audience excited for what we’re doing makes me really proud of what’s ahead for both GoWild, and tech in the hunt fish market.”

In highlighting his company’s Connect IQ development, Gleim walked the audience through GoWild’s patent pending process of collecting and analyzing biometric data captured from wearables. GoWild dynamically showcases heart rate data from outdoors activities via the phone’s haptics (vibrations) and interactive graphs. Simply put, this app lets outdoors enthusiasts share activities with data never before combined and/or shared. Hunters can pinpoint the very second their heart rate soared when they first saw their target. The story is told with their photos, elevation, temperature and heart rate all overlaid on an anonymized map. Likewise the app has functionality for archers and hikers, and will soon add multiple types of fishing.
