It pays to be healthy for once. OptimityX is a pocket health coach that you can connect your phone or any wearable or popular health app and Optimity will automatically pull 6 months of your habit history and reward your healthy habits with points that you can convert into $25 reward cards.

@writerpollock @janejywang how would OptimityX compare to Evidation Health? Cool stuff!

@trentbigelow The 2 products are quite different, since Evidation is patient focused, and we are looking at the pre-patient population: i.e. 20-50 year olds who are inactive, but do not currently have any chronic conditions. You can read more about the proactive approach here http://blog.myoptimity.com/proac... and of course, keep the questions coming!

Looks cool! My boss is always complaining that the startup life doesn't leave enough time for exercise, and I tend to agree -- I'll ask him if we can get this set up for our team!

<3 you guys. Feature suggestion: plane mode. When a device is put into Airplane Mode, the app serves up plane-friendly exercises / habits.

With so many fitness apps out there that seem to take an arm's length approach to counting steps and tacking on a leaderboard, I like how this differentiates itself by offering holistic health tips and incentivizing us with rewards I can actually relate to! That said, I'm not sure if this also integrates into my existing steps trackers like Fitbit or Jawbone, etc. Any plans for that @janewang? + @gillianim: this seems relevant to have on your radar based on your question yesterday about fitness apps.

@alirtariq One step ahead of you (no pun intended)! We already integrate with both Fitbit and Jawbone, as well as a bunch of others such as Misfit and Polar. We also connect to popular apps like Google Fit, Apple Health, Underarmour's "MapMyFitness" and Strava as well as many more :).

@alirtariq @janewang @gillianim Or if you don't have a wearable you can use your phone's accelerometer to track steps. Use Google Fit or Apple Health on your smartphone.
