Grokker Syncs with Wearable Devices Fitbit and Garmin(December 13, 2017)
San Jose, California, Dec. 13, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Thinking of gifting fitness trackers for your employees this holiday season? Just in time, Grokker is announcing that its on-demand wellness solution syncs with Fitbit and Garmin. Cue more employee engagement!
The U.S. Department of Labor Workplace Wellness Study revealed that making wellness activities convenient and easily accessible for all employees improves engagement. Grokker’s 4,000+ video programs and online network of 130 master experts are available anytime, anywhere, on any device. The latest wearables integration provides even more ways for employees to participate in Grokker challenges and earn incentives, so they can run, cycle, or swim their way to better health.
“1 in 5 Americans own a wearable fitness tracker, but counting steps isn’t enough. There’s enormous potential to boost employee engagement with our new syncing technology,” said Grokker CEO Lorna Borenstein. “At last, employees get a holistic view of everything they’re doing. But you need to meet them where they’re at, reward all they do, and recognize that it’s not one-size-fits-all.”
Grokker uses an interactive feature called “Wellness Minutes” to track employee progress with its nutrition, fitness, meditation, and sleep videos. With the new integration, employees can rack up Wellness Minutes for activities outside of Grokker by syncing their Fitbit or Garmin to the site. In addition to its latest syncing technology, Grokker offers its popular app on Apple Watch, iPhone, Android, AppleTV, Roku, and Comcast.
But don’t take our word for it. Check out what Grokker employee beta testers have to say:
- “I think pairing Grokker and FitBit is a great idea and will help push wellness.” --Cindy W
- “I like that the minutes spent outside walking and running add to my Wellness Minutes.” --Amy G
- “I like the ability to track non-Grokker activities from my FitBit. It’s easy to use!” --Nancy M
- “I am trying to be in better health using MyFitnessPal to track my meals, FitBit to track my steps, and using Grokker almost daily for stretching, cardio, yoga, and mindfulness.” --Judy B
Grokker takes the work out of workplace wellness with an easy-to-implement, holistic, and cost-effective program. With over 4,000 exercise, mindfulness, nutrition and sleep videos from 5 to 50 minutes, more than 130 master experts to choose from, and a supportive community to connect employees across locations, Grokker’s patented program delivers results. Loved by users in 172 countries, Grokker was named to CNBC’s 2017 Upstart 25 list for successful startups. Grokker is available anytime, anywhere on any computer, mobile device, and TV through Comcast Xfinity, Amazon Prime, Apple TV, Roku, and Chromecast. Learn more at www.grokker.com.
