SHELTON, Conn.--(FitLinxx, a provider of wireless health and wellness technology that motivates people to live actively and improve their well-being, today announced that its activity tracking devices have now clocked more than 100 billion steps. That number is equivalent to walking to the moon more than 250 times and enough for individuals to burn six billion calories, which translates roughly to losing a collective 1.7 million pounds.)--
FitLinxx activity devices motivate people to live active and healthy lifestyles. Integrated with corporate wellness programs, FitLinxx activity devices ranging from the original ActiPed to the ActiPed+ and Pebble® have had a significant impact helping employers lower their healthcare costs, increase worker productivity and improve overall employee health and wellbeing.
According to FitLinxx President and CEO Dave Monahan, “Our wellness products have stood the test of time and have benefited from years of technology innovation and usability improvements based upon actual user experiences and feedback from wellness experts and users alike. This milestone is a testament to both our wearable electronics expertise and the innovative wellness programs our partners have developed using FitLinxx devices.”
More than 50 partners have developed activity-based wellness programs that encourage people to become more active and improve their health. FitLinxx partners average a 70% activity engagement rate with their plan participants. Combined, FitLinxx technology and partner wellness programs result in long-term user engagement and positive behavior changes.
Smart Activity Trackers
Designed for use in corporate wellness programs and sold through partners to businesses and consumers, FitLinxx’s Pebble is a simple, natural device that clips to an individual’s shoe, belt, waistband, pocket or bra, blending seamlessly into daily life. The waterproof device automatically tracks the number of steps taken, calories burned, distance traveled and total activity time throughout the day, and works across multiple activity types, including walking, running, elliptical training and biking.
Using applications that FitLinxx partners create, individuals can view their activity information, set and measure goals, achieve rewards and join communities to stay motivated. The Pebble provides instant and motivating feedback on the device, showing progress that an individual has made toward his/her daily goal, as well as data sync status and remaining battery life.
