The GOQii Fitness Bands are made out of silicone, are water-resistant (not waterproof so no swimming), but it will resist rain, sweat, shower and a splash of water. The straps are adjustable and changeable to any of the cool colors – Passion Red, Power Black and Persistence Red+Black – with more color options coming soon. The GOQii Core can connect to your computer or device via Bluetooth and will automatically sync every time it is within 10-15 ft of your smartphone. Not only is your information updated on your end, your GOQii Coach is also automatically given your activity, which allows them to better advise and applaud you (it’s a bit like working out with a friend).
While other bands concentrate on your body, GOQii aims to bring happiness to your body, mind and soul. Our coach, Neha, has been our cheerleader, fitness trainer, and adviser on everything from our fitness routine, sleep patterns (we’re happy with anyone who tells us we need to take a nap during the day), eating habits, and mental well-being, with daily tips and encouragements. The GOQii Band does an amazingly precise job of measuring your Activity and Sleep. In the Active mode, it focuses on measuring steps, calories burnt, distance traveled, activity time and Karma points. In the Sleep mode, it measures time slept and quality of sleep. Additionally the GOQii Band will also display time and an envelope symbol when you have a message from your Coach.
If you feel so inclined, the GOQii app gives you the ability to share your updates via social media, interact with other GOQii Life users, and donate your karma points to great causes. You may be thinking, what exactly are Karma points. As we previously stated (and as you can see in the photo above), it’s a way to do good by help great charitable organizations. Essentially you earn points based on the number of steps you take in a day, these points can then be donated to any charity organization linked in the GOQii app. It gives you a great sense of happiness to know that just by walking, not only are you heading towards a healthier lifestyle, but you’re also helping people in need. In other words, you do good and feel good, and as GOQii says #BetheForce. What’s better than that?
