Webinar: From Step Tracker to Health & Well-Being Companion: Google Doctors Discuss the Evolution of Fitbit

February 16, 2022

OVERVIEW

Fitbit made its debut in 2009 as a step tracker. Fast forward to today and Fitbit doesn’t just track steps, but can also help people reduce stress, eat well, get better sleep, and improve activity levels to reach recommended guidelines more efficiently.

In this fireside chat, Dr. John Moore and Dr. Kapil Parakh from Google discussed this continued evolution and how today’s Fitbit experience helps users connect the dots between their everyday behaviors and overall health & well-being.

During this presentation, you'll hear:

  • How personalized health and well-being experiences (like Fitbit’s) are being used to help people live better with chronic conditions, and how they may also play a part in prevention.
  • The outcomes of clinical studies that show how the addition of Fitbit to health interventions can help enhance their impact.

Note: Presentation was pre-recorded and followed by a live Q&A with the speakers.

Speakers:

  • John Moore, MD, PhD, Medical Director, Fitbit | Google
  • Kapil Parakh, MD, MPH, PhD, Medical Lead, Fitbit | Google
