What is a fitness tracker app?

A fitness tracker application is a mobile app that enables users to track their daily physical activity.

How to successfully grow your fitness tracker application

Risks and challenges of building a fitness tracker application

A fitness tracker faces similar legal and reputational risks as a dating app, but also has privacy risks related to the storage of sensitive health data. It is recommended that fitness apps use secure smartphone APIs for accessing user medical records and conduct routine audits to ensure that all user data is stored securely.
