Innovating weight loss: How wearables, devices, and technology are enabling smarter weight loss

Lose It! Product Shot_Watch Tablet Smartphone Watch_400PXDeciding it’s time to lose weight is only one part of the weight-loss equation. The bigger, more challenging, and often daunting task is deciding what weight-loss program to use. For years, the weight loss industry has been wrought with points, pills, pre-packaged food, diet centers, low-carb, and other gimmicks designed to deliver weight loss fast. The reality is that these solutions are out of touch with the rapid evolution of technology and consumer demands. The rising expectation of consumers today is to lose weight on the go while eating real food and developing habits that will help them live healthier lives.

Lose It! members have access to an active community of more than 24 million members, where they can join challenges, collect badges, and gain support from others on the same path.

Weight loss is not a one-size-fits-all program. It’s an extremely personal and emotional process. For that reason, Lose It! allows each member to personalize their individual program. Want to lose weight and still enjoy a glass of wine or a slice of pizza? Lose It! helps members understand their daily choices and teaches them how these habits can impact their weight-loss goals through tools like its Patterns feature.
