Seattle, WA (PRWEB) December 11, 2013
Today, EveryMove launched the EveryMove Fitness Tracker and App Comparison Tool that let consumers discover and compare the best fitness tracking apps and devices on the market by the features that matter most to consumers.
With so many options available, and, according to IMS Research, the growth of mobile health and fitness app downloads projected to rise nearly 63% from 2012 to 2017, the demand for a tool that lets consumers wade through the noise and make smart purchase decisions is only expected to increase.
“The world of fitness tracking devices and apps is exploding,” says Russell Benaroya, CEO of EveryMove. “With new tracking devices and apps coming onto the market everyday, it’s difficult for consumers to figure out what will fit best into their lives. We’re filling a critical gap that allows consumers to find solutions based on price, style and activity interests. There is no better time to do this than around the holidays when millions of people will be experimenting with new apps and devices.”
To be considered for review, the app or device had to have the ability to track performance passively, chart progress over time and be available for purchase or download in the next few months. The final curated list was created to include a broad spectrum of apps and devices evaluated by key characteristics such as popularity, technology innovation, and user experience.
With the EveryMove Fitness Tracker and App Comparison Tool consumers can search and compare apps and devices by activity interests such as running, biking, swimming, cross training and more. Consumers can also filter the list by brands, software compatibility and by device style. Each app and device in the directory outlines the key features, quotes from expert reviewers and a link to purchase online if available.
”We know from our own experience at EveryMove that consumers who track their data are generally more engaged and consistent with their healthy activities.” said Russell. “We want to empower consumers to take control of their health and an important part of that is making sure they can discover the optimal device or app for their lifestyle.”
