Health and fitness app

This health application collects data from a fitness tracker and presents it in a user-friendly format. Within the application, users can find statistics for various indicators, including sugar level, weight, number of steps taken, body temperature, amount of water consumed, and more. This robust feature set lets users easily monitor and track their health metrics, facilitating informed decision-making for a healthier lifestyle.

Project background

According to current statistics, people spend over 5 hours a day with their favorite mobile applications. Also, people have become very interested in exercising, nutrition, and staying healthy while maintaining their lifestyles and busy schedules. 

During the pandemic period, there was a huge problem with social interaction, since it was not recommended to gather in groups. The industry of fitness apps needed a new solution to cope with social distancing and support the competitive spirit.  

Our client is a leading US healthcare startup with a popular health and fitness app and connected devices. CHI Software Mobile unit was responsible for a new app feature: leaderboard by location. There is a list of leaders by indicators around the world, among close friends, and among participants in one organization, for example, among employees of Google.

Business needs

According to current statistics, people spend over 5 hours a day with their top fav mobile applications. Also, people have become very interested in exercising, nutrition, and staying healthy while maintaining their lifestyles and busy schedules. 

During the pandemic period, there was a huge problem with social interaction, since it was not recommended to gather in groups. The industry of fitness apps needed a new solution to cope with social distancing and support the competitive spirit.   

– Our client has a popular fitness app and a huge distributed team working on every feature separately.  

– Our client was looking for a strong mobile team with expertise in fitness apps development. 

– The main requirement was to receive high-quality services and have good communication within the team. 

Product features

– User personalization. Collect user info such as age, gender, weight, height, and so on for customized nutrition and/or workout plans

– Wearable devices integration. This functionality allows the synchronization of data across devices

– Daily/Weekly/Monthly results. This feature helps evaluate the progress in a given period and set long-term goals accordingly

– Setting and tracking goals. Aiming at measurable results, the fitness app’s main option is to set the desired results

– In-app notifications. This feature helps improve the engagement of the app users and overall time spent in the app

– Share results to socials. Integration with social networks is a must-have feature for fitness apps

– In-app community. To add competition to the fitness routine, we added a feature to build a community of like-minded people within the app

Solution

CHI Mobile team was responsible for a new app feature: leaderboard by location. There is a list of leaders by indicators around the world, among close friends, and among participants in one organization, for example, among employees of Google.

We came up with a platform where users can compete in different sports, supporting a healthy lifestyle.

– The main realization of this idea is a Leaderboard feature, that divides sports enthusiasts by location, and company. 

We provided a custom healthcare app feature so users could enter the city/state competition table, as well as join the country-level competition.

Each company (employer) had its own Leaderboard, competition, and, thus, leaders. 

The best part is, people don’t just do exercises or run but also earn points for the overall health score to compete and motivate each other.

Employee testimonial

Papin Paronikyan Android Technical Lead

Every new feature development in this all-in-one health and fitness app is done by a separate team. I was lucky to be a part of such a team. We had guys from around the globe and it was curious to hear so many different expert opinions! The technical skill of the entire team was very high. Imagine, there were people with more than 15 years of experience in the IT industry. We created “a product in a product'' and successfully released it. According to analysts and the financial department report, our functionality attracted more than 600 thousand $ in one year. It was cool to create a new high-quality solution that brings profit and real value.

Let’s bring your idea to
life together!
