Wearable Smart Meter Turns Fitness Into An Interactive Game [Future Of Gaming]
PSFK spoke about the Future Of Gaming with the founder of Switch2Health, a company producing wearable technology that keeps track of an individual’s fitness achievements and provides incentives that reward healthy behavior.
The PSFK consulting team has noticed that as a way to motivate people to change or improve their personal behaviors, an increasing number of games are being developed which incorporate some form of reward and/or competition into their structures.
One company operating in this space is Switch2Health (S2H)– a company producing 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 positive behavior that can be redeemed at the S2H website for various promotions and prizes. Users can also access personal health statistics on the site to track their progress over time. PSFK spoke with CEO and President Seth Tropper of S2H.
