WEBINAR REPLAY

From Step Tracker to Health & Wellbeing Companion: Google Doctors Discuss the Evolution of Fitbit

On-Demand Webinar
Fitbit made its debut in 2009 as a step tracker. Fast forward to today and Fitbit doesn’t just track steps, but can also help people reduce stress, eat well, get better sleep, and improve activity levels to reach recommended guidelines more efficiently.

In this fireside chat, Dr. John Moore and Dr. Kapil Parakh from Google discussed this continued evolution and how today’s Fitbit experience helps users connect the dots between their everyday behaviors and overall health & wellbeing.

As a practicing cardiologist, Dr. Parakh shared how he envisions personalized health and wellbeing experiences (like Fitbit’s) being used to help people live better with hypertension, diabetes and other chronic conditions, and how they may also play a part in prevention.

Dr. Moore discussed the outcomes of clinical studies that have already shown how the addition of Fitbit to health interventions can help enhance their impact.
