San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 02, 2016
Wellocity, a San Jose based provider of corporate wellness solutions, announced today that their innovative platform now allows employees to sync their health and fitness data from over 100 wearable devices and fitness apps.
This capability enhances the employee wellness experience by allowing users to track their steps, miles, calories burned and sleep pattern data all within the Wellocity app. This in-app functionality makes it user-friendly and exciting for employees to use their favorite device and obtain points, rewards, and most importantly health benefits.
“We built an open platform to support multiple wearable devices chosen to facilitate employee diversity or a BYOD (bring your own device) policy,“ said Sameer Kanagala, founder and CEO of Wellocity. “With our open approach as more devices and apps become available, employees and organizations no longer need to understand the integration and data capabilities of each device and can instead focus on increasing its overall value and utility.”
The employee’s ability to select the device of their choice is powerful and places them in control of their wellness decisions. Some of the brands of devices and apps supported by Wellocity include Fitbit, Jawbone, Garmin, and Jawbone, iHealth, MapMyFitness, RunKeeper, Strava and more.
“At Wellocity, we feel that individual choice of wearable devices and apps allows employees to choose their favorite brand and the one that increases engagement which ultimately promotes a sustainable program,” said Kathryn Larrowe, Content Strategy Manager at Wellocity. “This approach allows us to continually add the latest and greatest device.”
Technology is constantly evolving and new devices are introduced into the marketplace each day. From apps to bands, to smartwatches the Wellocity platform allows employees to benefit from each technological advancement.
Wellocity is an innovative corporate wellness platform that delivers the benefits of a happy and healthy workforce. We enrich employees' lives through improved health and wellness by offering flexibility for employers to promote health behaviors, improve health knowledge, and lower healthcare costs.
