SparkPeople, Sparked By 15-Million Member Community, Unveils the Spark Activity Tracker with FitLinxx Technology
The Spark Activity Tracker: A One-of-a-Kind Wireless Fitness Tracker that Fully Integrates with SparkPeople’s Proven Healthy Lifestyle Program & Robust Online Community
CINCINNATI, Ohio, October 1, 2013 – SparkPeople, the largest online weight-loss and fitness community, today debuted the Spark Activity Tracker at Health 2.0, the leading health conference for cutting-edge innovation. SparkPeople partnered with FitLinxx, a provider of wireless health and wellness technology that motivates people to live actively and improve their well-being, to market the Spark to consumers. SparkPeople provides its 15 million users with nutrition, health and fitness tools, and the Spark allows users to monitor their everyday health and fitness. By combining the Spark with the nutrition tracker, workouts, articles, recipes, and supportive community of SparkPeople, users now have a comprehensive program and device to help reach their healthy living goals.
The integration of FitLinxx's cutting-edge hardware technology and SparkPeople's proven healthy living program offering information, motivation and social support is unmatched by other activity tracking devices. Though FitLinxx has traditionally marketed its products through corporate wellness partners, SparkPeople's launch of the Spark will represent the first activity tracking device delivered directly by a major fitness and nutritional publisher to an existing, robust community of users.
Now available for $59.95 at SparkPeople and Amazon, the Spark is a small reminder to fit more fitness into every day. It easily attaches to a pocket, belt, shoe or bra, and tracks daily steps, calories burned, activity minutes and distance covered. Whether users are looking to lose weight or just maintain a healthy lifestyle, combining the Spark Activity Tracker with SparkPeople's free resources, tools, recipes and community delivers a complete program for healthy living, all in one place.
