Hello there my lovelies!
Today I want to talk to you about how to get the most out of your fitness tracker. It seems like everyone is sporting some sort of wearable fitness tracking device these days. Whether it’s a Jawbone or a Fitbit, these technologically enhanced pedometers are everywhere it seems.
Though wearables provide valuable information regarding the number of steps in a day and hours of sleep, it can’t combine it’s data with that complied through tracking apps like Apple Health, RunKeeper, MapMyRun, Strava and more to provide insight on the why and how each impacts one another. Now sure, it’s possible to spend hours and hours trying to find out your sleep affects your running, for example, but why waste your time when someone else can crunch the numbers for you?!?! This is where Addapp comes in…
“The real problem is that the data generated from wearables and tracking apps only tell half the story. You can see how far you move and how well you slept, but the next step in the evolution of wearables and personal data is to help you understand why.” – Kouris Kalligas, Addapp CEO and Founder
According to the Addapp website, Addapp is an iOS app that gives you personalized actionable health and well-being insights. The app analyzes data from all the health tracking apps and devices people use day-to-day to provide actionable insights. Addapp features a new design and significantly improved personal insights, making it the best way for people to use their own data to improve their life.
Addapp is easily connected to all of your favorite fitness devices and apps including, the ones shown below and more. I currently have Apple Health, Jawbone, MapMyRun and Moodpanda connected to my Addapp. This means that the Addapp magical insight creators have access to the data gathered by these four devices and apps to gather information to create customized insights for me on how my sleep, steps, runs, mood and stairs climbed all affect each other!
A few times a week Addapp delivers personalized insights straight to your phone inside Addapp into this no fuss, easy to navigate interface.
Once you click on the insight in the main screen to open it up, the app provides a more detailed explanation of your insight. For this insight, Addapp noticed that I had increased my activity distance from the previous week and not only congratulated me, but encouraged me to increase my strength training and stretching to improve my overall performance. My insight even included a link to some stretches that I should try out!
Addapp also notices if you’ve had an especially active day, congratulates you on it and encourages you to share your accomplishment with your friends via text, email or social media!
And just to show in the Jawbone app that I was in fact highly active on June 3rd, here’s a screenshot of my Jawbone data from the same day.
Since my Jawbone collects information on sleep and steps, Addapp is able to us that information to provide me with insight on how my step count and activity level impacts the amount of deep sleep I get each night. Turns out I sleep WAY better if I’ve been active during the day. Now if I ever find myself having trouble sleeping, I can try increasing my activity level to promote sleep. Nice!
Want to give Addapp a try for yourself? Addapp is currently only available for iOS, so if you have an iPhone, head over to the app store and download the free app to see what insights it has in store for you!
