THE PROBLEM 85% of Canadians do not get the recommended 25 minutes a day of exercise. A sedentary lifestyle leads to chronic disease. But exercising, and staying motivated, is hard. THE SOLUTION Exercise needs to be simple, fun and interesting. PupCoach is a mobile app that pairs with a smartwatch, starring an interactive virtual dog, who must be walked every day to stay out of trouble and be happy. If you want to play with him, or hear his stories, you have to walk. There are other fitness apps, but none that deliver an emotional connection like this, designed to grow stronger over time.
