Fitos is a fitness app for motivating those who dislike sports in a playful way to adopt an active lifestyle. Each user is represented by an illustrated character which can interact with other users. The app also helps to find suitable training partners. Fitos can be connected to fitness tracking apps or devices and, by this means, track the bodily activities of the users and monitor their progress. These data are transformed into a points system and a reward is given, for example discounts or tickets for events from sponsors of the health and fitness industry.
