What is Fitbit and How it Works for DNA Fitness?
Fitbit is a wireless-enabled wearable physical activity tracker designed to help you become more active, eat a more well-rounded diet, sleep better and ultimately, turn you into a healthier human being. Fitbit measure data such as the number of steps walked, heart rate, quality of sleep, steps climbed, and other personal metrics.
Throughout the day, Fitbit logs a range of data about your activities, including the number of steps you take, distance traversed and calories burned. It’s also sensitive enough to detect just how vigorous your motions are, which differentiates a slow stroll from a jog that consumes far more calories. As a result, you will receive feedback to achieve your goals.
Therefore, it’s easy to make Fitbit part of a DNA fitness program based on your genetic profile from GenoVive.
