Using the app is very simple. Simply download it, install it and register. Then synchronize the device you use most to measure your workouts (Runkeeper, Endomondo, Runtastic, Fitbit, Garmin, Withings, etc.). This way, all the exercise you will do will turn into points. The greater the workout, the more points you get. Periodically, the application gives you certain challenges that you can achieve. If you are used to doing sports, you will have no problem in overcoming the challenges. But if you think that means you won’t be able to reach the set goals if you are not someone who exercises regularly, then we are here to set your mind at ease. With WeFitter, you can use any health app on your phone and log in any type of exercise you do on the go, be it walking or climbing steps on your way to work. The challenges that are set by the app really help to motive the users, who can check their progress at any time, to see how close they are to receiving the coveted points.
