In 2016, Pebble turned its focus on health & fitness. We racked our brains trying to come up with our vision for a “health tracker.” The market is saturated with health devices that are more or less similar in their approach; we wanted to come up with something that feels more natural and less goal oriented like the other devices. I designed two apps: a Health app that presents steps, sleep sessions and heart-rate, which were backed up with notifications and graphs where the user would be measured against his/her average, and a standard Workout app that tracks and measure runs, walks and general heart performance.
The challenge was to visually communicate the concept of the “typical,” a user’s average that constantly adjusts based on their performance. In addition to the numerical value of steps and sleep, We designed the graph to visually show how a user is performing against their changing “typical.” In effect, they’re not just racing against the clock, they’re racing against themselves.
