Problem Identification

In this fast-paced world, keeping an eye on health-related vitals on daily routine can sometimes be difficult to manage, mainly for patients. Hence, nothing could be better than fitness wearables that keeps track of physical activity and sends reminders of wellness. Keeping this in mind, we aim at developing a native hybrid web responsive application.

  • Help patients to fetch and track their activities
  • Allows tracking the physical activity of an individual
  • Monitor calories intake/burned and exercise duration
  • Allow users setting personal goals as per body requirement

Feasibility Study

After considering problems, a feature-rich health application, that tracks users/ patients’ workout and nutrition plans, was needed to put into action. We intended to develop a fitness monitoring solution that works wonders for patients by notifying them about the medicine and water intake, tracking nutrition habits and other daily activities.

  • Display data for patients on mobile and web app
  • Allows linking or delinking the app with one or all wearable devices
  • Allows social sharing of achievements
  • Provided users with workout and yoga videos to stay fit and healthy
  • Added features like pre-set exercise routines

User research

The success of every app depends on by perceiving if it is actually targeting the users it was mainly built for; which can only be known by conversing with real-world users. Therefore, to gather user’s insight, we carried out user research among a group of people to understand the potential of the application and how we can keep it user-oriented.

Product discovery workshop

Product Discovery Workshop plays a vital role in making mobile app development a successful venture. We say so because the recently organized workshop about the health fitness app, helped us fulfill the project requirement at ease and in every respect. We led the session well with the client and mutually devised strategies to achieve success metrics.

We then discussed the app design prioritizing the product concept, wireframes and keeping the target audience in mind. In a nutshell, we outlined all the core elements of a to-be-launched health and fitness app. The workshop helped us know exactly what product the client wants to build, what market it is for and how it will help users in different aspects.

Competitor Analysis

The market is highly competitive and this is why analyzing the competitors of a similar solution will help us in dominating our rivals and developing the best application in the market.

The Challenges

Even after a lot of research and consideration, there were few complications encountered by the team while developing the health solution. Challenges faced while crafting the health fitness application are -

  • Developing rich UI/UX charts in React native app
  • Implementing GPS technology
  • Making app compatible with different fitness wearables
  • Secure transactions of data to maintain patient’s data privacy
  • Providing keys and convenient functionalities for a fitness app
  • Enabling comprehensive tracker

Final Outcome

After understanding the customer's vision, our team of designers and the engineer put forth the meticulous process to formulate a web responsive mobile-based application that tracks the physical activity of users at best.

  • Integrated the UI components with backend APIs
  • Push notification system and reminders
  • Allow synchronization with different devices
  • Added features like sleep tracker, Altimeter
  • Routines customization for specific workouts
