    Hello!
    I would love your feedback on..
    How helpful would a bracelet (example: FitBit) be to your life style and emotional well-being.
    The bracelet would monitor your steps, distances traveled, calories burned, and the time (like a watch).
    In addition to the bracelet, it would be connected with a phone application that transfers the data of your bracelet you can take a look at. There are also forums to talk to other users and food logs to keep track of your meals.
    Would this app/bracelet that connects you to the diabetic world help for emotional support?

    Thanks :)

    I thought there are phone apps (eg:- runtastic) that already do this kinda stuff? What makes yours different?

    I'm not sure I need any help with my "Emotional well being" but an app connecting to a FitBit type band could hep monitor my progress I would think.

    Sounds awesome! The only thing that would make it better is if it also showed you your blood sugar too. Oh wait...
