1. What is FitAge?

FitAge is a program that rewards the user based on their lifestyle choices. The healthier their lifestyle choices are, the more rewards they can earn.


2. Who is eligible to have a FitAge?

Anyone! All you need is a GETGREAT account. 


3. Is there a fee to join FitAge?

FitAge is absolutely free!


4. What are the benefits of FitAge?

FitAge motivates users to earn more rewards by adopting healthier lifestyle choices. 


5. How is FitAge calculated?

Your FitAge is calculated based on your lifestyle choices that are mainly derived from these 3 areas: Physical Activity (number of steps you take), Rest (number of hours you sleep) and Cardiovascular Fitness (heart rate when you are at rest). 

As a guide, you should aim for at least 8,000 steps per day, sleep for 7-9 hours per day, and try to maintain a resting heart rate of 64 bpm and below, in order to see positive effects on your health.


6. How do I participate in FitAge?

It is open for all users of GETGREAT. You simply need to give the necessary data permissions for GETGREAT to have access the health data.


7. How can I improve my FitAge?

You can improve your FitAge by adopting healthier lifestyle choices.


8. Can I still use FitAge if I do not own a wearable?

You can still track your sleep and resting heart rate with certain in-built trackers such as Samsung Health. In the event that the user does not have an in-built tracker that is capable of tracking your sleep and resting heart rate, FitAge will use your steps only which will reflect a slightly inaccurate result that will limit the amount of STARS you can earn.


9. Why are my hours of sleep and/or resting heart rate results reflected incorrectly?

Please ensure that you have synced the 3rd party application you are using to track your sleep and resting heart rate before trying to sync in GETGREAT. Please remember to sync your GETGREAT app at the end of the day.


10. What happens if I take a nap or wake up in the middle of the night and go back to sleep?

We will take in the total sleeping hours from the tracking device.


11. Why is the device that I am using not shown?

We are constantly adding more support for 3rd party devices, kindly drop us an email with your suggested device and we will look into ways of incorporating it into our system.


12. What happens if I did not sync for a day or more?

When the user syncs after a period of inactivity, our system can sync up to 7 days including the current day, of the user’s records and credit the missing stars accordingly. However, we recommend users to sync data to the tracking device before syncing to the GETGREAT app at the end of every day. Always remember to sync your wearable to its corresponding app before syncing to GETGREAT. If you open the GETGREAT app before the wearable/device app, the GETGREAT app will only capture the last-recorded steps from the wearable/device app.
