Limeade Supports More Than 80 Wearable Devices and Fitness Apps, Powers Employee Choice

Personal Relevance, Social Competition and Options Drive Well-Being and Performance Improvements for Fortune 1000 Workforces

BELLEVUE, WA--(Marketwired - July 15, 2014) - Limeade, a technology company that helps build happy, healthy, high-performing workforces for Fortune 1000 companies, today announced that its employee engagement platform connects to more than 80 wearable devices and mobile fitness apps.

Now offering one of the broadest portfolios of wearable devices and fitness apps on the market, Limeade enables millions of users to connect their Limeade experience with popular fitness devices and smart phone apps. Users can track miles, minutes, calories, steps and key biometric data. This expanded capability makes it easier and more fun for employees to compete with their colleagues, receive immediate feedback and support, and earn rewards through Limeade. 

"Personal choice is vital to help employees reach their potential. People want to use the device or app that meets their -- and their companies' -- needs and budgets. Choice is key to driving sustained engagement," said Henry Albrecht, CEO of Limeade. "According to ABI research, more than 40 million wearable sports, fitness and wellness devices are expected to ship worldwide this year, not to mention all the smartphone apps. Our open approach allows us to support many of these devices now and in the future."

Device brands supported by Limeade include Nike+, Fitbit, Withings, Garmin, Jawbone, Moves, Bodymedia, iHealth, FitBug, MapMyFitness, Misfit, Movable, RunKeeper, Strava, and more.

"We are delighted to partner with a leader in employee engagement to help more people compete, have fun and personally improve using our devices," said Dan Bartel, Vice President of Worldwide Sales, Garmin International. "Whether employees are elite athletes or just beginning their path to a healthy and active lifestyle, Garmin helps users understand how daily activity impacts their long-term well-being and performance."

"More than 20 percent of users are tracking progress with their personal device or fitness app on the Limeade platform, and this percentage is growing rapidly," said Justin Jed, Limeade Vice President of Product Management. "We're simplifying how people track health activities so it becomes a part of their lives, and they never have to enter data manually. When someone syncs a device or app they are more likely to engage in their employer's well-being program, which helps drive the long-lasting cultural and organizational change our customers are striving for."

"Wearable technology has helped our employees fit fitness into their everyday lives and made it easier to track activity," said Limeade customer Melissa Walters, director of wellness and engagement at The Ohio State University. "Devices are also a great reward for employees. They motivate our participants to be active every day and encourage participation on the Limeade platform."
