In our research for the Future Of Gaming report, the PSFK consulting team noticed that one motivation driving in-game participation was Rewards. One example of this mechanic is US-based Switch2Health (S2H)- a company that offers a simple, wearable technology that keeps track of an individual’s fitness achievements and provides incentives through a scalable platform that rewards healthy behavior. As users complete a specified amount of high-level exercise, the device presents a simple code to reward physical activity that can be redeemed at the S2H website for various promotions and prizes. Users can also access personal health statistics on the site to tracktheir progress over time. S2H enables individuals to earn rewards for their physical activity, join teams and compete, track their weight, engage in challenges, rise in the leaderboards, and share their progress with the online community.
