Nowadays everyone is interested in two things mainly – technology and fitness. When you combine both together, fitness technology makes a revolutionary break-through. There are so much in modern “Fitness Technology” as – smart fitness watches, smart shoes, heart rate headphones and even clothes that help track your fitness regime and health. This will greatly benefit corporate employees to track and keep to their fitness goals, as in this fast paced world, corporates do not have the time to take care of their health.
Benefits of Fitness Technology
- Fitness technologies in general can help remind physical therapy patients when to exercise and guide them through the process.
- Will help prevent and detect injuries due to bio-sensors. They can detect unusual muscle contractions or abnormal heart rate or respiration patterns.
- Can help you keep track of your workout and plan ahead which will encourage you to be healthier.
HNB has taken advantage of these benefits and provides you with HNB Fit which will only keep benefitting you. The HNB Fit launch was on the 16th of November 2017. The idea behind the HNB Fit is that your HNB account gets debited for each step you keep every day, it integrates fitness technology and gives benefits to the consumer in order to encourage them to be healthier. HNB Fit has partnered with the top three fitness brands; Apple, Fitbit and Jawbone.
HNB Fit is a banking product that is an online application which promotes fitness and health, which enables people to manage their health as well. It’s simple! You complete the daily fitness goal of 10,000 steps per day as set by HNB, where and anywhere you are, at any time you would like and at your own pace!
What is in return for you? You would be healthy of course and on top of that, HNB will give you an exclusive interest of 10% for every 10,000 steps. The fitness targets will be set according to your requirements and schedules and the app will send you notifications from time to time reminding you of your fitness goals.
HNB was awarded Merit Award for research and development by British Computer Society at the NBQSA Awards 2017, for the bank’s ground breaking release of the HNB fit. This innovation is a breakthrough in the Sri Lankan market as it will help our nation to be healthier which is imperative to lead a happier and safer life. This will also encourage people to walk more rather than travelling by vehicles which will cause less pollution as well.
