Introducing the Shapa Activity Tracker
We are so excited to introduce our newest Shapa feature. The new Shapa Activity Tracker was designed to make your weight loss journey that much easier, more efficient, and more productive than ever before.
Integrating with Google Fit and Apple Health, this is a new way to track your average steps per day, with the same stress-free feedback system you’re used to!
The Shapa Activity Tracker serves to provide members with a simple snapshot of their trends for their activity level. Average activity level can play a huge component in body composition, specifically for those with a lower basal metabolic rate due to being short or having less muscle mass, which is more common in women.
Shapa members must agree to a 3rd party integration with google fit or apple health to see this feature. All data utilized for the feature will come from these two and is a reflection of the data from these sources. Each time you open your Shapa app, the feature updates. Shapa takes the step data from the past 168 hours (7 days) from the moment you open the app and divides it by 7 to provide you with your “daily average”. Because it is based on hours and constantly updated, it won’t reflect full specific days.
For example, if I see my color is high teal early Sunday at 8 am and I spend the day on the couch, it will likely be lower when I look again at 8 pm. This would be especially true if I was extremely active the previous Sunday as that data fall out of relevance.
The color is based on the requirements outlined in the popup here:
Shown here is the activity screen that appears on the main screen. While we do not show their exact step number (we do this intentionally so people do not become micro-obsessed with a specific number) we do have small dash marks. Each color represents a 3,000-step range and so each dash mark is 1/10 or 300 steps (average) closer to the next color. This provides users with a great understanding of whether their green is closer to light gray or teal.
Designed to help you stay motivated and achieve your fitness goals like never before, the Activity Tracker is your newest fitness partner that will take your workouts to the next level. Try it today and discover the power of efficiency at your fingertips!
