FitLinxx’s Pebble Wins About.com 2013 Readers’ Choice Award for Best Computer-Linked Pedometer/Activity Monitor

FitLinxx, a provider of health and wellness technology that motivates people to live actively and improve their well-being, today announced that the Pebble® is the winner of the About.com 2013 Readers’ Choice Award in the category of Best Computer-Linked Pedometer/Activity Monitor.

The About.com Walking Readers' Choice Awards honor the best products, features and services across categories ranging from walking shoes, apps for walkers, computer-linked pedometers/activity monitors, treadmills, and more, as selected by its readers.

“We congratulate FitLinxx on winning this award for two years running,” said Wendy Bumgardner, Guide to Walking for About.com. “Activity monitors are getting smarter and smarter each year and FitLinxx truly has bragging rights in this category with the Pebble.”

The Pebble is a simple, natural device that clips to an individual’s shoe, belt, waistband, pocket or bra, blending seamlessly into daily life. The waterproof device automatically tracks the number of steps taken, calories burned, distance traveled and total activity time throughout the day, and works across multiple activity types. The Pebble provides instant feedback at a glance on the device, showing progress that an individual has made toward his/her daily activity goal, as well as data sync status and remaining battery life.

According to FitLinxx President and CEO Dave Monahan, “We are excited to win this prestigious award in back-to-back years because we know that being more physically active is the single best thing people can do to improve their health and reduce healthcare costs. When you combine the Pebble with engaging wellness programs, you ensure that individuals stay motivated to successfully achieve their goals. We thank all of the About.com readers for their votes of confidence in the Pebble.”

FitLinxx works with a global network of partners that integrate the Pebble into customized corporate wellness programs. These programs help companies improve the health and well-being of their employees and reduce healthcare costs.
