High-tech fitness trackers like FitBit and FuelBand sound great on paper, but many of us have trouble knowing exactly which devices to purchase.
Today, though, EveryMove debuted a new tool that can help. The Seattle startup, which raised $3.5 million back in April, just built a directory of more than 200 fitness tracking apps and devices with information about the products.
The devices are categorized into groups like type of activity, brand, style and software compatibility. You can also compare two devices to find out which is best for you. Every device in the system can track performance passively, chart progress over time and be available to purchase/download now or in the next few months.
This is an add-on to EveryMove’s primary platform, which lets users track their healthy habits and rewards them with gift cards and reduced health-care premiums. The company is a TechStars Seattle grad co-founded by CEO Russell Benaroya and CTO Marcelo Calbucci. You can read the transcript of the interview or listen to the recording here from when we had Benaroya on our radio show last year talking about EveryMove.
