Aristotle as inspiration for an activity tracker.

Product innovation

Do you already own one of those activity trackers? You know, a little wristband with a step counter and heart rate monitor. Chances are you do, as these trackers are very popular nowadays. Being fit is the new norm. Getting plenty of exercise is part of that, and with activity trackers and health apps, we can all monitor our efforts. Market leader Fitbit has sold over a 100 million devices, and today over 33 percent of the world’s population uses an app or tracker to monitor their health. In just ten years we’ve all embraced this trend: Gradibus ergo sum – I step, therefore I am.
