By leading a healthier lives by counting steps and calories, Great Eastern has launched the FitAge. It is the newest feature added to its mobile health and wellness lifestyle app GETGREAT for a more holistic calculation of one’s fitness.

GETGREAT users will be able to measure their FitAge, or the age of their fitness versus their biological age, based on their level of physical activity (number of steps taken), cardiovascular fitness level (resting heart rate) and sleep sufficiency (number of hours of sleep).

The FitAge score will help users gauge their cardiovascular health, track their fitness levels, and more importantly, recognise any early signs of the onset of major health issues due to lack of sleep or physical exercise.  

By incorporating FitAge onto the GETGREAT app is a timely and convenient add-on for health buffs, especially with the growing trend in the use of mobile apps, fitness trackers and smart watches, to track one’s physical training data and health status.
