Let's face it: the lazy stereotype of your average gamer is unlikely to be tearing themselves away from the screen to complete high-intensity workouts. Fitbit, however, thinks they shouldn't have to. The company's new Xbox coaching app arrives today and will make working out between games easier than ever before.
The app comes preloaded with a wide range of audio and video workouts, personalized training regimes and customizable music playlists via Fitbit Radio. Your heart rate will appear in real time on your TV, allowing you to optimize your intensity and help Fitbit better measure your calorie burn.
In theory, all you need is a TV, an Xbox and the app to get going, but the experience is enhanced with a Fitbit tracker or smartwatch to monitor your heart rate.
Fitbit Coach is available in English, French, German, Portuguese, and Spanish. Head to the Xbox store to download now.
