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.

GoVida has many options to choose from, so the user has a lot of freedom and variety for improving their health habits. The main function is step-tracking. This function comes with multiple challenges (individual and team-challenges) that motivate the user to complete their daily step count. The application also has a "Mind" section. I find that this is quite an original feature that separates GoVida from other step trackers and elevates it [as] a wellness application. The "Mind" section has a variety of audio sessions that are helpful for meditation, mindfulness, and overall psychological wellbeing. Lately, GoVida added an Emotion tracker where users are able to rate their daily emotional wellbeing. The ratings are anonymous. With this feature, we are able to see the overall employee emotional wellbeing and make institution-wide improvements based on that. Lastly, GoVida offers a leaderboard. At our particular university, we have quite a few employees that are motivated by competition, so even though GoVida aims for a holistic approach toward wellness, we are happy that it also gives the option to compete [with] those who need it.

Cons
Google
  • 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.

GoVida
  • The mental well-being content is good but I'd like to see more of it
  • I'd like to see more functionality that helps the interaction with other colleagues during the challenges. We use Whatsapp at the moment which is ok but would be good if it was wrapped into the app
