A loop of the neighborhood, your commute into work, a tour of the grocery store—you already know your steps can take you places. And now, they can take you on a journey through one of America’s most treasured areas: Yosemite National Park.
Introducing Fitbit Adventures!
Fitbit Adventures is a new series of personal, non-competitive immersive Challenges in the Fitbit app that encourage you to get more daily activity by virtually exploring scenic and iconic destinations.
They’re designed to inspire and motivate you to move more, to help you reach your health and fitness goals, and to virtually take you to places you might not visit otherwise—like Yosemite National Park located in California. All you need to complete a Fitbit Adventure are the steps you normally get through your daily activity. With each step, you virtually advance on a pre-set route and discover landmarks and treasures along the way.
There are three breathtaking routes in the Fitbit Adventures Yosemite National Park series: Pohono Trail, Valley Loop, and Vernal Falls. Here’s what you’ll find when you challenge yourself to one:
Daily Destinations Each morning you will be challenged to reach a new destination along the trail. The distance to the destination is personalized to your historic Fitbit data, making the experience challenging, yet achievable. When you reach your destination, tomorrow’s distance will be increased slightly—inspiring you to take more steps and become more active over time.
Landmarks From jaw-dropping peaks to stunning vistas, you’ll see the best of Yosemite National Park in the form of exquisite photos taken by world-class, outdoor photographer Chris Burkard. Prepare to be mesmerized by the unforgettable sights as each beautiful panoramic image dynamically adjusts when you rotate your phone—allowing you to enjoy the moment as if you were really there!
Treasures Along each route, you will uncover more photos and collect fun facts, as well as health and fitness tips, and mini challenges.
Fitbit Adventures are available now on the Fitbit app for Android, iOS, and Windows. Simply navigate to the Challenges screen and start one of the Adventures today.
Coming Soon! Discover a whole new set of daily destinations, landmarks, and treasures on the streets of New York City! You’ll be able to use your steps to virtually experience the full TCS New York City Marathon route, a 10-mile, partial-course challenge, and a 5K set in Midtown Manhattan in September 2016.
