IF This Then That, or IFTTT for short, lets you automate the way products and services interact with one another. Want to receive an email every time your camera uploads an image to Dropbox? Go right ahead. Want to adjust the thermostat when your car nears the home? You can do that too.

Now Sony and IFTTT have worked together to produce a new channel using the Lifelog API. The channel lets you integrate the activity tracking you've done from a SmartBand or the Sony app with other services to accomplish all sorts of things. Some of the examples provided include posting a Facebook status every time you take a certain amount of steps, automatically sharing calories burned to Google Drive, and receiving an email summary of your daily Lifelog activity.

Sony is working on the second iteration of its SmartBand activity tracker, which will contain a heart rate sensor this time around. But you don't need to wait around for that piece of hardware to get started with the IFTTT channel, nor do you even need a Sony-specific device. The Lifelog Android app plays along with hardware from other manufacturers.
