Fitbit Inc (NYSE:FIT), which happens to be one of the industry leaders in the area of health and fitness wearables has for the very first time outlined its list of Fittest Countries and also the Fittest Cities in the U.S.

The top end provider has impressed a large number of people especially in the way its platform greatly succeeds in offering a mechanism to uniquely quantify the various global trends in health and behavior.

A recent analysis carried out by the high end provider has revealed that indeed Ireland tops the list when it comes to those countries that observe fitness with much seriousness. It raises eyebrows in a major way to see the United States standing at position 28 in terms of the rankings. However, this is the reality on the ground and there is no denying it that the U.S population has some heavy lifting to do in order to climb the ladder in term of the rankings.

Asides from the platform assisting different persons track their daily health and fitness metrics, it goes further to connect users from across all the mobile platforms worldwide and that is exactly what culminates in the creation of a more engaging global community across the most vibrant and expansive fitness networks.

The Vice President of Research at Fitbit, Shelten Yuen while addressing a press conference said, “We are more than just hardware. Our software and services offerings help inspire, coach and guide users to reach their goals in more personalized and powerful ways. The network effect of our global community of millions of users gives us an incredibly strong competitive advantage because it provides our users with the support and motivation they need to reach their goals whether that means eating healthier, moving more or sleeping better.”

The provider lately carried out an in-depth analysis of the anonymized and aggregated data from more than 20 million users worldwide in a bid to try and actually uncover the Fittest Countries ranking.

There are a number of top end devices that are helping track as well as analyze daily activity and that includes sleep, exercise and heart rate. Fitbit has a lot of developmental plans underway but where they lead the company is something we just have to wait and see.
