Now you can invite friends and family to join you in challenges on Vital.
As part of our initial release, there are two ways you can send invite. The first option is to share a url link, which provides instructions to the recipient on how to download Vital and access the relevant challenge. The second option is to invite users on Vital by using the search bar and selecting the user from a list.
We’ve seen that users are more likely to complete their challenge when they do it alongside friends. We have other tools which help users provide encouragement and have fun, including challenge nudges and challenge conversations.

Based on your findings, you can ask other Vital community members for tips on how they’ve improved their metrics, or offer you own experience to others.

This includes friends and Twitter connections already on Vital, as well as others who are interested in the same topics as you. For example, interested in Zone 2 training? Find others also exploring this area, see what they’re up to, and share your health journey together.

You can select your main interests during the initial onboarding, and these can always be adjusted later on your profile page.

Upon opening the app each day, you can see whether you achieved your goal or not, viewable in the progress section of the challenge page.
As with other challenges, you can see how other participants in the challenge are progressing. Learn from others, ask questions and start discussions with the group by tagging other users in posts. Encourage and motivate one another as each person works towards the challenge goal.
Give it a try! Challenges are commonly referred to as one of the best ways to stay accountable to one’s goals in a fun and approachable way. We’ve more coming when it comes to making challenges something community members can connect over.

In addition, tagging in comments will be released in the coming days, again to foster deeper conversations.

Vital is building a full suite of integrations with your favorite wearable devices and apps. We’ve added another direct integration to our list of data sources with this Garmin integration.
To connect your Garmin device, go to Settings > Devices > Garmin. Upon selecting the toggle, you will be redirected to Garmin’s website where you will be prompted to login using your Garmin credentials. Once complete, you will be redirected back to the Vital app, and data will now be automatically synced from your Garmin device.
This means your Garmin workouts, sleep and other metrics will be readily available in the Vital app. Track, analyze and share your Garmin data.
We’ll be continuing to add more direct integrations over the coming weeks and months. You can let us know which other integrations you would like to see at our public roadmap here.

The fun part is rings are now accessible to everyone, no matter what wearable or app you and your friends use. This makes things like tracking and sharing more accessible to more people.
Vital aims to facilitate positive behavior change to improve everyone’s health - we hope this is another step moving us in this direction.

We’ve designed these emails to hit your inbox throughout your first week of joining Vital. From our early adopters, we’ve noticed some commonalities with how they use the app to drive improved health outcomes. We share with you their actions to see if they resonate with you.
At Vital, we’re intent about building alongside our initial user base to create a truly game changing product. Our user’s feedback shapes what we build and our emails help you share your voice in an easy way.
Lastly, our line of communication is always open. Reach out to the team at any time.

The feed is sorted from newest to oldest and the report is continuously updated each day depending on your activity levels.
A typical use case will be to check your daily report in the morning. Here you will understand your sleep performance for the night before, as well as your latest heart report showing stats like your Resting HR, HRV, and heart rate during the day. If you’ve just crushed a morning workout, your stats will also be on show.
You can see where this data is coming from if you use multiple wearables and apps.

This snapshot provides a springboard for you to take action, whether that’s to get out and move a bit more, focus on a protocol to recover or relax, or simply feel more confident that you’re in touch with your mind and body.
These metrics are being pulled from a number of different apps and wearable devices connected to Apple Health, with more sources being added.
The default metrics for users to view relate to sleep, exercise (active calories, exercise minutes, steps) and heart (resting heart rate and HRV) stats.

We’re introducing sleep in Vital to give you a better understanding of one of the most crucial aspects of your health (and some say the most important and it’s “not even close”).
At the touch of a button, use the sleep feature in the Vital app to understand your sleep performance last night, see sleep trends over time and discover how your sleep is related to other key metrics also available in the app (such as your activity levels and heart metrics).
To start with, check out metrics such as your total sleep duration and your sleep efficiency (the percentage of time we spend asleep while in bed).
To display your sleep, simply navigate to the “Me” feed . Here you can see your most recent sleep performances. You can dive-in to discover more details.
Got a great night of sleep after implementing a new protocol? Or have questions on your sleep trends that you’d love to explore? Share with friends through the Vital app and get their input. There’s a whole community out there waiting for you!

We’re introducing heart data in Vital to give you a detailed lens into some of the most important numbers you should know about your health. Over time, these indicate your overall recovery and readiness scores, as well as alert you to potential health areas to explore.
In your personal dashboard, see the “Heart” section to see key metrics such as your Heart Rate Variability (HRV), Resting Heart Rate (RHR) and latest heart rate readings.
Get to know your heart metrics, alongside other key pillars of your health, all in one place in the Vital app.
Curious as to why your resting heart rate might have increased over the past few weeks? Want to share the effects of meditation and improved sleep on your HRV? Share through the Vital app and get input from the wider community. Tell your story!
