I have been meaning to write a longer post about my experience with the Fitbit since I got mine for Christmas (has it really been that long?!), but in the meantime, want to share what in the world you can do with all that data.
There are tons of different data points that you collect with a Fitbit — everything from how often you wake up in the middle of the night to how much water you drink in a day to how many flights of stairs you’ve climbed. I have only been focusing on a few things within the Fitbit: the number of steps, number of calories and (sometimes) the distance. Of course, I always use the watch feature too.
Anyways, I was recently introduced to Addapp thanks to FitFluential. It’s an app that’s available on iOS products that basically serves as the conduit between your fitness tracking devices and helps you use the data that you collect to turn into information that you can base your decisions on. After all, what’s the use of data if you can’t act on it?
The idea behind Addapp is to help you learn how the actions you take impacts your everyday life. If you eat certain foods, how does it impact your mood? How did you what you eat impact your sleep? With this insight, you can truly make better and smarter decisions.
I also like that it gives you some motivational insight and tips like this:
I have just gotten started with Addapp so far, linking my Fitbit account and FatSecret. I got some good insight about my sleep patterns:
Woo! That made me feel good. At least I’m doing something right… 🙂
They have a ton of other programs and devices that you can link, including the Apple iWatch, which opens the doors to even more apps that you can link up with Addapp.
After looking at all the ones they connect with, I decided to try Moodpanda, an app that tracks your mood… and with Addapp, you can learn if certain foods may be impacting the way that you feel.
I think Addapp will only get smarter over time, so I’m excited to see what else it may reveal… especially if it connects some dots that I don’t! The download itself is free, which is pretty awesome (who doesn’t love free?!), so definitely go check it out and give it a shot!
Do you wear a fitness wearable? What do you like about it?
What do you think about Addapp… something that would help you make better health decisions?
