Health and fitness data aggregator Nudge is finally launching an Android app, allowing owners of smartphones with Google’s mobile OS to sync their health and fitness tracking apps and devices, and get the Nudge Factor score that ranks their overall wellbeing.
“With the Android version, Nudge expands its reach to millions more individuals who will be able to track and compare their overall health with other people worldwide,” says Nudge co-founder Mac Gambill.
Android users can now sync their health and fitness tracking apps and devices and get the Nudge Factor score that ranks their overall wellbeing.Similarly to Apple’s HealthKit, Nudge tracks any number of health information from a number of different sources, including diet intake, level of hydration, minutes of fitness, hours of sleep and energy level, and presents this data in one easy-to-use dashboard. In its latest Android version, Nudge adds Sleep as Android to the lineup of apps with which it syncs; this list of supported apps includes such popular titles as Moves, Fitbit, Up by Jawbone, Map my Fitness, Strava and Runkeeper.
Earlier mentioned Nudge Factor is created from all the data collected to allow users to compare themselves to others, regardless of what other tracking platforms are used, as a tool for “social accountability, positive reinforcement and support to help them reach healthier lifestyle goals.”
For added motivation and support, Nudge’s platform has multiple clubs dedicated to specific aspects of health and fitness such as outdoor adventures, recipes, running, stress management and weight loss.
