Is Virtual Reality the Future of Fitness Devices & Fitness Tracking?

That's exactly what we discuss with Wellovate founder Joe Morgan as we explore potential applications for their mixed reality health and wellness platform.

A collaboration between 3 doctors, Wellovate is creating an innovative health and wellness experience that may change the way we see health and fitness, the way we track it, and the way our personal devices can integrate with clinician's software.

On this episode, we talk to Dr. Joe Morgan about:

  • Meet Wellovate and the doctors behind it
  • The most important health metric to track
  • How many steps a day do we really need?

  • How fitness trackers are moving toward more valid and useful devices
  • A picture is worth a thousand words, but a 3 dimensional one is worth a million
