Sync your favorite fitness tracker, and we’ll reward you for hitting walking, running, swimming or biking milestones. There are different fitness goals to shoot for and earn on every day, week or month.
We sync with all of the major fitness trackers: Fitbit, Garmin, Misfit, Underarmour and Withings as well as Apple Health (which comes with iPhones and Apple Watches).
