Getting healthy and tracking progress can be hard work, especially for people who travel or who aren’t in front of computers most of the day. Our new HealthMiles Dash mobile app provides employers with yet another way to engage their employees. The app puts all the power of the HealthMiles program in the palms of our members’ hands to keep them engaged and on track, no matter where they may be.
Virgin HealthMiles members are always on the go – and now, so is the program that keeps them engaged and motivated to move. The HealthMiles Dash mobile app turns members’ iPhone®, iPad® or iPod touch® devices into a training partner that has all the HealthMiles features they depend on to keep them moving, including the LifeZone® web portal and the GoZone® pedometer. (NOTE: Dash app for Android is in development and will be coming soon!)
With Virgin HealthMiles Dash, members can:
- Track Activity. Whether they are walking around the block or running a marathon, members can use the built-in accelerometer to track their workout session. It’s simple to set time, calorie and step goals. The app syncs their session to their Virgin HealthMiles account, providing members with another convenient and easy-to-use device that lets them track validated activity and earn rewards.
- Record Results. Members can manually add their weight and blood pressure and the Dash app will calculate their BMI to keep them up to date on key biometric measures. Members can also manually add their activity and duration to discover calories they’ve burned.
- Track Progress. Members can scroll through their daily summaries or view measurement and activity graphs to track their health progress over time. They’ll also see rewards they’ve earned and those still up for grabs.
- Join Challenges. With the HealthMiles Dash mobile app, members can accept the latest challenge, join a team, view participants and then keep track of the standings in real-time throughout the challenge duration.
- Stay Connected. If the Virgin HealthMiles Connections social platform is part of their program, members can use the Dash app to connect with their community post or comment on the news feed and motivate others in real-time, no matter their location.
