Bangalore-based 2mpower Health Management Services, makers of the GetActive series of fitness trackers, has launched a new personal health and activity tracker called GetActive tapp. The product which claims to follow WHO guidelines to benchmark activity levels will be available exclusively via Myntra at a price of Rs 4,999, the company said. However, it seems one can also buy it directly from the company's website. The device will track daily physical activity like steps taken, calories burnt, non-sedentary time spent in the day and distance covered in kilometers etc. It will then connect to the users smartphone using low-energy bluetooth and sync live fitness data to its app, which can then be accessed or downloaded from the app dashboard. The app is currently available for iOS and Android phones. In addition to its other features, the GetActive tapp will also let users accumulate currency for every step taken, which it claims can be redeemed via its partner ecosystem. However, the company failed to mention which partners or what it can actually be redeemed for. The company currently also offers a variety of differently colored wristbands, priced at Rs 499, for the device. The company had raised an undisclosed amount of funding from Chairman of Manipal Global Education Services TV Mohandas Pai and former Infosys CTO Sharad Hegde, in May this year. At the time the company had said the funds will be used to provide holistic disease management solutions and expand applications in areas such as retail and financial services.
