The cost of Fitbit is much more affordable and more reasonable for the population we serve. We do wish that some of the features would be improved and easily navigated as the Apple Health app. We selected Fitbit for multiple reasons. One is the affordability (although we do …
Chose Fitbit
I love Apple Health's more advanced and comprehensive approach to health and wellbeing - so personally, I switch over to Apple Health and a Apple Watch recently. I would still recommend the Fitbit to someone who may not be sold on the Apple Watch or it's benefits. It's a great …

I would recommend it as a tool to use in addition to other fitness/health tracking tools. I use other health apps as well (C25K, LoseIt, SleepIQ, Nike Run Club). I'd say its a tool among tools - not the end all be all tool. I do think the Apple Health Ecosystem (Apple Watch, iPhone) is unmatched.

The first scenario is that Fitbit allows our employees to see their exercise productivity in a day. The facility we are working in is a [healthcare-based] facility. We have staff that [is] constantly on the go. The device monitors their activity for personal knowledge and [professionalism]. Therefore, the employee can decide if they are doing enough exercise in a day or if they need more. As an employer, we like to have [documented] activity to provide a wellness benefit. The Fitbit provides us with ideas and tools to improve the health of our staff and to make exercise fun. Lastly, the other features that Fitbit has been extremely beneficial to our staff and residents. They can monitor things like sleep and healthy choices on their own. In addition, looking at [heart rate] and how that reflects on their activity.

Cons
Apple
  • I'd like see more robust tracking of foods/diet - this is a personal request - not necessarily driven by work issues, but calorie tracking would be a nice addition.
  • I find the "summary screen" to be convoluted and not compatible between other Apple Health Users - this is mainly due to differences in generations of Apple hardware.
  • I'd like to see a universal comparison of days for all metrics (Active Energy, Steps, Calories burned etc.

  • Ability to upload GPX tracks.
  • privacy protection to it’s customers.
  • Some of these locations and your biometric response you may be ok with Google knowing so that it can personalize your ads, but in many cases you may not want your activities tracked. It would be good for Fitbit to give its customers the power inside the mobile app to sort and allow which data is uploaded to it’s cloud before it leaves their device.

I've used Garmin and Fitbit - admittedly it's been a long time and those were early generations of a product - but the Apple Health devices that are available in todays climate are far superior to those initial devices that served very limited roles (only steps tracking). The heart rate monitoring/active energy calculations/etc all blow those early devices out of the water.

Return on Investment
Apple
  • Apple Products are inherently expensive - but for the most part employees are motivated to pay for them.
  • From a business perspective, we pay for the Apple iPhones, but the Apple Watch is left to the employee
  • I think that it improves employee moral when comparing and having a healthy competition between employees.
