Tanner Labs Bringing Real-time Corporate Wellness to Apple Watch
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — October 15, 2014, O.C. Tanner’s research and development arm, Tanner Labs, is preparing to develop a native corporate wellness application for Apple Watch.
“We see great potential in Apple Watch as it applies to personal and corporate wellness,” said Nate Walkingshaw, Vice President of Tanner Labs. “Our team is exploring ways to take advantage of this exciting new platform. We’ve received amazing feedback from users of both iOS and Android versions of Welbe, and I’m confident that we’re going to deliver another mind-blowing experience for employees!”
Further details regarding Tanner Labs’ plan for corporate wellness on Apple Watch will be revealed in further detail, upon the release of the watch’s SDK, WatchKit.
In June, with the release of Welbe™, Tanner Labs became the first to deliver a corporate wellness platform that aggregates real-time Wellness Intelligence™. Welbe intuitively leverages a wide range of existing wearable fitness devices and apps, including Apple HealthKit, in order to enable a more holistic approach to wellbeing that takes advantage of the solutions that people already use and love.
“Every moment that an employee spends sitting on their rear end, saps their energy and ruins their health,” said Tom Rath, Author of Eat Move Sleep.
