Have a fitness competition with your friends
Or, you know, a total stranger
Every time your boss glances at her Fitbit, you wonder how many steps she’s taken so far today. Because you’re at 8,500 and it’s only noon, so you probably have her beat, right?
You’ll know for sure when you convince her to link up with you on Matchup, a new Chicago-based app that lets enthusiasts of fitness trackers (think Fitbit, Jawbone and Garmin) engage in a little friendly competition.
Once you download the app, you’ll enter your device’s log-in information to get set up. Then you can invite friends and coworkers to compare numbers of steps or challenge them to beat your count.
If your inner circle isn’t as addicted to their trackers as you are, Matchup will connect you with step-obsessed strangers.
Want to see your name at the top of the leaderboard? Better park in the last row of the Costco lot today.
