I now have something new to obsess about — making sure I lose some weight in time for IBM’s Impact 2012 Conference at the end of April, and my BodyMedia FIT and the FITCoach will help me do it. FITCoach is an enhancement to the existing FIT product that analyzes your performance and provides personalized feedback to better achieve your goals. It looks like I may need to go hiking today, “You can still reach your calorie burn target today. Try hiking for 1 hour and 5 minutes, or attend an exercise class.”
It’s also telling me I could Golf for 1 hour and 15 minutes to still hit my goal. That sounds like more fun.
Last summer and fall, Summa worked with BodyMedia, Inc. to design and implement the new FITCoach feature. We did it using decision management technology from IBM.
