While we encourage you to do so, you do not have to provide us with your health related personal information to use Foresters Go, but where you choose to do so,  the more accurate your Health Score will be and when tracked over time, this can be a great way to keep track of your wellness.

The Health Score makes it easy to measure and understand your health by taking your age, gender and a variety of other factors into consideration through a mathematical process called equalization. You can make small, positive changes to your body, mind and lifestyle to improve this over time which can have widespread health and wellbeing benefits.

When tracked over time, your Health Score can offer an indication of how your health and wellbeing are evolving.
Your Health Score is based on the information you provide about your health, activity and habits . You can increase your Health Score by tracking your exercise and becoming more active, eating healthy, getting enough sleep and engaging with the virtual coach, Aida to obtain health tips and other important information.

 

Reminder: Increasing your Health Score and maintaining an overall healthy lifestyle are the result of consistency in healthy diet options and physical and mental activities over time.

No. The Health Score is a general indicator of your health and wellbeing; however, it is not a substitute for the advice or services of a medical professional. If you require healthcare support, please consult a medical professional.

Your Health Score may fluctuate based on your level of engagement with Foresters Go. If your physical activity or interaction with coach Aida (example: setting goals, answering questions, etc.), decreases, your Health Score may decrease.

Your Health Score and/or interaction with coach Aida is not intended to replace the advice of a physician, it is meant to offer you a general overview of your overall health and encouragement while you progress on your journey of well-being. Read more

Foresters Go has algorithms that detect workouts and activities that are counted twice and remove duplicates in tracking. The app calculates a daily summary of activities and verifies if certain workouts and activities overlap in time. If they do, the workout with the higher burned normalized energy (measured in METs) will be displayed.

Some external devices/apps do transfer step data multiple times a day including tracking times (start/end) via their connection. This helps Foresters Go to do an exact overlap calculation and therefore be very precise in the removal of duplicate workouts and activities.
