Hello Alex,

Thanks for reaching out, it's great to hear from you!

There is a certain comfort achieved after having gone through the process once, however I believe that it's almost human nature to second guess your own ideas. I think that the best thing to pull away from the process I went through is that it's only natural to be intimidated / second guess yourself. However, in OpenIDEO's platform there are no distinctively bad or distinctively good ideas, everything is fluid and has potential. The only way to be a part of it, is to jump right in. So, I guess that's my opinion, even though it can be intimidating you should just jump right in (and that's what I plan to do from here on out, haha)

Hi Irene,

Thanks for reaching out! One of our biggest desires with this product is to reach a market that doesn't have fitness trackers or can't afford them- and give them this great alternative :)

One of the most vital aspects of this product is the community that it will build. You can earn a small number of points by scanning the QR code on your own but if you take part in a community that is really what helps build your desire to keep going. I think having incentives like those you've listed above would be great! We chose to have tv episodes/sports unlocked, because we figured that the market that needs fitness the most might prefer to watch tv over exercise- but maybe as these athletes increase their rank they can also unlock prizes like a personal trainer app. I could definitely see this working into our concept.

Thank you for sharing! You've got great ideas!
