Fitbit Releases New Immersive and Engaging ‘Adventures’ Challenges | Business Wire

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Fitbit

(NYSE: FIT), the leader in the connected health and fitness market,

released Fitbit

Adventures, a new series of personal, non-competitive activity

Challenges that are designed to inspire you to move more and reach your

health and fitness goals. With each step logged, you can advance and

virtually experience iconic landmarks and trails in Yosemite National

Park or participate in the TCS New York City Marathon, while being

motivated by fun facts and inspired through immersive breathtaking

photography. Available globally in the top-downloaded, free Fitbit®

app, Fitbit Challenges motivate users to increase activity, showing

how small steps add up to big results, with Fitbit data demonstrating

that users who participate in Challenges move up to around one

additional mile per day, on average.1

“Fitbit Adventures are the perfect motivation for anyone who may not

want to compete in a traditional Fitbit group challenge with friends or

family,” said Tim Roberts, Executive Vice President, Interactive at

Fitbit. “These new challenges inspire you to move more through virtual

explorations of some of the most captivating environments in the world –

places you mightn't be able to visit otherwise – all powered by your

daily step activity. Whether hiking a beautiful trail in one of

America’s greatest natural treasures, completing the most iconic

marathon in the world. Visiting one of the many exciting destinations

yet to come, we believe Adventures truly brings the experience to life.”

Where Will Your First Fitbit Adventure Take You?

You can begin your first Fitbit Adventure with one of three breathtaking

trails set in Yosemite National Park, including Pohono Trail, Valley

Loop and Vernal Falls. In order to showcase the natural beauty of one of

the world’s most treasured national parks and make it completely

immersive, Fitbit partnered with world-class explorer and award-winning

photographer, Chris

Burkard. Coming soon, through Fitbit’s

unique partnership with New York Road Runners, you'll have the

opportunity to experience the iconic TCS New York City Marathon. These

two Adventures are the first in a series of innovative Challenges being

developed by Fitbit, with future updates adding renowned destinations

and experiences from around the world that'll encourage and motivate

users to reach their health and fitness goals.

It’s All About the Journey

In addition to virtually transporting you to a far off land through

dramatic imagery, each Adventure features a vibrant new interface that

lets you navigate through your journey in the Fitbit app and see how

your daily steps collectively advance you along the trail. Along the

way, you’ll have the chance to discover the following experiential

elements and milestones:

  • Trails: Every Adventure has single and

    multi-day trails that are the same distance as they'd be in real

    life. You can find the right challenge for you.

  • Daily Destinations: Each morning you're

    challenged to reach a new destination along the trail. The distance to

    the destination is personalized to your historic Fitbit data, making

    the experience challenging. Achievable for everyone. If you reach

    your destination, the next day’s distance is increased slightly to

    inspire you to become more active over time.

  • Landmarks: From jaw-dropping peaks to

    stunning vistas, Landmarks are locations along each trail that are

    unlocked as you progress towards your destination. Once you’ve reached

    a Landmark, you’ll be mesmerized by the unforgettable sights each has

    to offer with beautiful panoramic images taken from the exact same

    spot. Each photograph dynamically adjusts as you rotate your phone,

    letting you virtually enjoy the moment just as you'd if you were

    really there.

  • Treasures: Uncover and collect hidden

    Treasures along each trail, like fun facts about your Adventure,

    health and fitness tips. Mini challenges. For example, the health

    tip “Sit Less, Move More” encourages you to set an hourly activity

    goal in the Fitbit app to counteract the negative effects of sedentary

    time.

The Fitbit platform –. Consisting of devices, apps, social and

motivational features, advice. Personalized coaching –. Helps you

make behavioural changes to be more active, exercise more, eat smarter,
