We are lazy to keep exercising. But we need to do it since health is the most important factor for our livingness. Now, we have greater opportunities to access to user's health related data with the evolvement of health related IoT devices and API. We wanted to create something that purely motivate people to keep exercising leveraging the data and gamified online environment.
What it does
It allows users to do following actions a. Setting up an individual exercising goal ( Activities types [Walking, Running, Biking, etc.. ], Time, Date ) b. Setting up a group exercising goal ( Activities types [Walking, Running, Biking, etc.. ], Time, Date ) c. Setting up a exercising competition ( Activities types [Walking, Running, Biking, etc.. ], Time, Date ) d. Viewing exercise progress with beautiful visualisation ( Steps Count, Distance to exercise, Duration to Exercise, Calories to burn) e. Share your goal and progress to others within community or to social network services
