Meet Human, A Beautiful Fitness Tracking App To Help You Effortlessly Stay Healthy

Meet Human, A Beautiful Fitness Tracking App To Help You Effortlessly Stay Healthy | Gamified Health | Scoop.it
Human is a newcomer in the crowded fitness space, but its take is different. Instead of being a stat-heavy activity app like RunKeeper or a life tracker gadget like Withings, Fitbit or Jawbone, Human is a passive iOS app designed to help you stay healthy. The goal is to move for 30 minutes every day, and to keep up with this simple habit. The company calls it the ‘Daily 30′. As it is extremely simple, keeping up with Human is easier than with competitive fitness systems
