Xbox Fitness has 1.5M users, may go mobile | mobihealthnews

Xbox Fitness has 1.5M users, may go mobile | mobihealthnews | Social Media | Scoop.it

Last year, MobiHealthNews wrote several times about howthe new Kinect (the motion sensing technology powering the Xbox One) had the potential to change home health care in several areas, including fitness.

The Xbox One launched this past November, and now data is starting to come back about consumer interest in the fitness tracking capabilities the Kinect provides.

According to a recent post at Polygon, nearly 1.5 million people have used Microsoft’s Xbox Fitness since it launched in November. The monthly subscription app is currently included for free with an Xbox Live Gold membership, but Microsoft officials told Polygon that could be changing in 2015.

The app includes workout videos from celebrity fitness trainers Jillian Michaels, Tracy Anderson, Insanity’s Shaun T, and P90X’s Tony Horton. In addition to playing the workout videos, though, the Kinect sensor monitors the user and displays tips on the screen to help the user better match the trainer’s instructions. It also monitors the user’s heart rate using minute changes in skin pigmentation, and displays it on the screen. Two other feedback metrics are displayed on the screen: energy meter, which estimates the user’s energy utilization, and muscle mapping, which indicates which muscles are getting a workout.

The infographic was created with B2C in mind, but absolutely applicable to the B2B world. It's a reminder that there's more than sending a tweet.
