How It Works

A wristband that tracks steps, distance, calories burned, active minutes and sleep, and lights up to show your goal progress.

How We Use It To Support the Need

The user wears the device to keep track of either steps they have taken throughout the day, calories burned, active minutes or other exercise done. The device can also monitor heart rate and sleep disturbances. It serves as a visual reminder about the commitment to staying healthy, the device syncs to another smart device and tracks a longer history of activity, weight, heart rate, sleep disturbances. Groups of students or housemates wearing the Fitbit can help to motivate each person, sharing individual results with the group may not be appropriate but pounds lost or steps taken as a group can be impactful.
