Core features implemented by EXISTEK
For Fit Us EXISTEK was tasked to come up with a fitness application that suits both sports pros and rookies at the same time. It is easy to learn and provides users with new features as they master it.
One-click water consumption tracker
Users can easily access the water consumption screen to add another glass of water or see how much to drink in order to achieve their fitness goals. It is as simple as drink another cup.
Calories calculator with the database
An integrated database of the nutrition and energy value for the most frequent food.
Integration with Apple HealthKit and Android Health to track the number of steps daily, stand hours, burned calories, etc.
One of the premium features - meditation. This mode helps the user to focus attention, plays background music, and silences all the notification on the phone on a system level.
