WalkWorks finally has a web-based tool for tracking physical activity; it’s Walker Tracker! Users will have the opportunity to set personal goals for daily activity as well as create or join activity challenges. In addition to utilizing it online, Walker Tracker may be used via its mobile app on both iPhones and Androids. Steps can be manually entered or users will be able to synchronize their daily activities directly from fitness devices such as FitBit, Garmin, Jawbone, Apple Health and Google Fit. Other forms of physical activity, such as swimming or biking – even yoga, can be converted into steps!
