The Truth About Well-Being Wearables

What is a Wearable?

Wearables are portable human activity trackers that measure vital statistics about your heart rate, activity, calories burned and even sleep quality.  The most common wearables on the market include Garmin, FitBit and Apple Watch.  The power and appeal of wearables lies in the real time data they provide about a persons current health status.  Simply knowing how many steps you've taken today or how many calories you've burned can help you make healthier choices tomorrow. 

Why Wearables?

Many employers have capitalized on the psychology of wearables to encourage employees to achieve their health and wellness goals by incorporating wearables in wellness programs and offering incentives for meeting activity goals.  In fact, a number of employers are offering wearables for free because of their potential to help employees make healthier lifestyle choices.   

Wearable devices have certainly come a long...

I am learning a lot from the US Wellness Health Improvement Program videos available on the wellness portal. I went grocery shopping earlier this week on a full stomach. That is a much better way to go, you tend to only get what you need, save money and I don't compulsive buy on what I am craving. Thanks for your help!

The biometric screening events are going really well and your team as always is on top of it. Thanks for being such a great partner!

We could not have asked for a better team than the one led by US Wellness this last week during our screenings.  They showed up early, were efficient, and all had very positive and helpful attitudes.  They were a great team and provided the City employees with first class service.  I am positive they had an impact on several employees who will hopefully use this screening as a motivator for better health … I know it will be a motivator for me!  They represented US Wellness as a top notch, customer focused group and we could not have been more pleased with their work.

I just wanted to thank you for allowing me to work for US Wellness.  I have to tell you that after many years of working with several different wellness companies, your company US Wellness is by far one of the best. I was so impressed with how organized you all are and how pleasant everyone was to work with. When the equipment arrived...everything was included...and when I had a problem with one shipment d/t UPS problem, you took care of it right away. Leesa was lovely to speak with before and after the event was thanks again.
