I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf Influence Central for Sprint. I will receive a thank you item for participating in this program. All opinions are honest and my own. You can read CFO’s full disclosure here.
A couple of weeks ago, I attended a demonstration and information session about Sprint Fit Live, a complete mobile health and fitness package that gives users access to their favorite fitness applications in one place. Sprint is collaborating with Under Armour, MapMyFitness and Spotify to offer mobile solutions for today’s active lifestyles through the new Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport, which you can use to track your workouts and monitor your heart rate. The S5 Sport will even offer you “coaching” and encouragement to help you stay motivated and achieve your fitness goals.
With MapMyFitness MVP (available through Google Play™), you can track, monitor, and share workout activity, and even get customized audio coaching, training plans, live tracking and more. The sharing feature makes it easy to team up with someone else so you can encourage each other, no matter how far away you live! With Spotify, you can get hundreds of Workout playlists (all Sprint customers get at least 3 months of FREE Spotify Premium service). Plus, you can customize the look and feel of fitness tracking, education, music and healthy living content displayed on the lock screen, wallpaper, or full screen.
I have to admit that my favorite feature of Sprint Fit Live is the Samsung Gear Fit, a wearable watch/fitness device that can interact with your Galaxy S5 Sport. As I mentioned on Facebook during the info session, I want one of these! It’s a pedometer, so you can track your steps. It includes a coaching feature to encourage and motivate you. It has a built-in heart monitor and a sleep monitor. You can also use it to take or reject calls, or view (and act on) emails, texts and alerts. And of course, it’s dustproof and water-resistant so you can wear it during your workouts. It even has interchangeable bands so you can match its look to your outfit!
As you can see in the (badly lit) photo above, Sprint brought in a personal trainer, Nathaniel Gosslein, to demonstrate Sprint Fit Live. I loved it when he started a jogging workout and went super slow, so the Gear Fit told him he needed to speed things up!
