Step counter, pulse monitor or calorie consumption – there are countless fitness trackers with different functions. We help you get an overview and explain how we, too, reward you for your active lifestyle with the Helsana+ app.
Smartwatches and fitness trackers have become a key part of modern life. They enable us to track our progress and to collect and evaluate our own body data. Some fitness trackers are step counters and pulse monitors in one, others also measure things like sleep quality. The data recorded is either processed by the fitness tracker itself or sent to your laptop or smartphone to be evaluated.

Clear your way through the jungle of offers
Which fitness tracker is right for you is a very individual choice and depends on your goal. There are all sorts of fitness trackers with different functions. A lot of them can count your steps, measure how long you sleep for and communicate with your smartphone or tablet. Expanded functions can include an alarm to wake you up in the morning with a soft vibration on your wrist or creating new running routes with the help of GPS.
Health app on your smartphone
Your iPhone comes with your very own personal trainer and dietitian: Apple Health. It can collect all kinds of health data and serves as a central data collection point, also for other health apps. For Android smartphones there is the free Google Fit app. Google Fit also records your physical activities, calorie consumption and sleeping patterns.
Being active is worth hard cash
With the Helsana+ app we transform your activities into cash. By connecting your fitness tracker with a health app such as Apple Health and Google Fit, Plus points are credited to your account when you reach a minimum target. For this to work, you have to allow data to be exchanged with Helsana+ in the health app. You can also upload a photo that shows you doing sport.
