ActiveLink is an activity monitor and a personalized website experience that translates the movement activities of a person into points, which users swap for additional food points. This monitor is a result of collaboration between Weight Watchers and Philips. It is only available to Weight Watchers members.
ActiveLink users place the monitor in a pocket or clip it to clothing, and it records their activities the whole day. It lets users know the number of points they are earning while walking or running. Members can plug the monitor into their computers and upload the information into their personalized website dashboards. The site gives members goals to achieve and provides motivation and tips to help them attain their goals over a 12-week period. After achieving the goal, the person creates another goal. In the long run, it helps members control their weight and live healthily.
The ActiveLink monitor helps people to lead a healthy lifestyle in a fun and engaging way. A person must have WeightWatchers eTools, Weight Watchers Online or a Monthly Pass subscription to be eligible for an ActiveLink subscription. Those interested in the monitor can buy it at participating Weight Watchers locations or online via the Weight Watchers website.
