Nudge App for iOS Helps Users Pick a Health Coach
Through Nudge+Coach, users select a health coach based on individual needs, such as losing weight, eating better or reducing stress levels.Health and fitness app developer Nudge announced April 14 the release of Nudge+Coach, a program aimed at pairing consumers with health coaches through the Nudge platform. By partnering with one of Nudge's vetted health professionals, users can gain feedback on how to improve their overall health and make sense of the data being pulled from the various wearables and fitness trackers on the market. "The health and fitness tracking space is very fragmented," Phil Beene, a Nudge co-founder, told eWEEK. "If you look at the app store, there are several hundred tracking devices on the market and no uniform means of making sense of all of the useful data that's being collected. So, making sense of the data and knowing how to leverage it to improve one's lifestyle is a huge stumbling block for consumers. "This is exactly what Nudge is trying to fix," he said. "We want to help make better sense of the health tracking space, allowing for a more seamless experience between consumers using health tracking platforms and the providers who are trying to better understand the information being collected."
Through Nudge+Coach, consumers can select a health coach based on their individual needs, whether it's losing weight, eating better or reducing stress levels, to name a few options.
