Fitbit introduced the newest feature which is Fitbit Care. It is supposed to assist a user in staying well while managing his fitness goals and controlling the treatment of illnesses.
The premium feature requires the users to install a Fitbit Plus app. This app will process the data received from the smartwatch and other wearables. In addition, the users will have a chance to reach people in support groups and motivate each other. Ideally, the app is supposed to connect the users and their doctors. The doctors will be able to see the daily metrics and see if the treatment is working.
Now only Humana provides the customers with this feature. So, you can only get it through the employers and health care provider. However, the company has the big goal and soon it’ll be much easier to get.
Fitbit unites everyone over the health. That’s why they released Fitbit Care which focused you to stay on the track and keep fit. The new feature delivers personalized coaching in order to help people lose or gain weight, maintain fitness activities, etc.
Fitbit’s new improvements clearly show how the company aims to deal with 2 problems at the same time. Firstly, they wish to change people’s behavior and attitude toward a healthy lifestyle. Secondly, they try to lower the costs for health-care.
The original Fitbit trackers already offer plenty of features. They track the number of burned calories, steps and distance. Moreover, they monitor the quality of your sleep.
