Striiv Vision

25 August 2011

Welcome to Striiv! We are so glad you are here.

Striiv started with a vision.

That fitness should be fun and that it should fit around your schedule.

We believe that current definition of fitness is leaving out millions of Americans.

We all want to be fit, but for many of us, when we come home after a long day, it’s difficult to find the time and motivation to fit fitness and exercise in our already busy schedules.

Striiv is about changing the negative conversations in our head around not working out and letting go of our guilt of not making it the gym.

It is about celebrating our decisions to walk to lunch instead of driving, and to climb the stairs, instead of waiting for the elevator.

It’s time to stop measuring our flaws, and start recording our victories.

At Striiv, we are standing up and stepping forward to create a playful, powerful, and inspiring movement around movement.

And whether you walk, run, or take the stairs, step by step, let’s change the face of fitness together.

    I have had my Striiv for six months today and have walked over two million steps. I enjoy looking at my stats and seeing what I have done. I am so thrilled with my Striiv, I am a walker but I am finding myself going for my stairs and even running a bit. The best news is I bought one for my husband who was a couch potato and now he is exercising regularly. We just got back from Yosemite and he did a eight mile hike with me. that wouldn’t of happened if he had not increased his exercise because of Striiv. I am encouraging all my friends to get one and enjoy building their own land. I just bought the Fairy Forest and now have a fairy in My Land. Keep up the good work Striiv, love all the updates you have been doing!

  • Sarah says on April 27, 2012 at 12:02 pm

    After reading all the comments I ordered my Striiv last week and recieved it two days ago. I absolutely LOVE it! The only thing that I hate about it is that I don’t have enough disposable income to get one for the rest of my family! I am trying to save up to at least get one for my husband, the kids and parents will have to wait! I would also like to put in my ‘vote’ for a bicycle addition. Just about the only exercise I got before was every now and then when I rode my bike the 1.5 miles to my friends or the 2 miles to the store and now that doesn’t count!
    That being said, however, I can tell you that the motivational aspect is right on the money! Just ask my three big dogs that were very confused as to why we were going up and down the stairs over and over just so I could complete a challenge! It has worked out for more frequent walks for them as well so its even affecting the furry family members!
    Also it is a wonderful feeling when I complete a charity offering. That was one of the deciding factors in my purchasing this. The game also is right up my alley. It is something that makes me want to go that extra few steps to get more energy for growing things or quests!
    After YEARS of trying to get healthy I finally feel as if I am truly on the right track and I owe the jumpstart and motivation to Striiv. You are saving lives and families and it is a blessing to have such great minds put out such a beautiful product! I will be recommending this to everyone I know plus my HUGE extended family. Thanks so much!

    Genius!
    You guys have hit every personality quirk!
    The achievers who want to best themselves or others,
    The philanthropists who want to give back,
    The gamers who just want enough coins to open Highlands/Lowlands,
    & Statisticians who want to keep track or know averages.

    And of course the true genius is we all like all four things on different days and for different reasons. Perhaps today I will be more active for coins, and tomorrow to be able to give one more glass of water, and the next day to see if I can do my personal best…
    Success!

    I am so glad I was finally able to sync…
    Congratulations to all of you…will there be developments in the game…or new quests? (Perhaps it’s my weakness…but hey, it’s better than any clicky game that encourages me to sit more, right?)

    =)

  • Sara Perry says on April 25, 2012 at 6:30 pm

    StriiV is terrific. Been using it every day since I got it 2 months & 10 days ago. The cool thing is that it really does motivate me to do more exercise daily than I was doing. It also significantly expands the choices for how to achieve my daily fitness goals, which is a relief cause I’ve been slacking for the past few months on my exercise routine. This way if I don’t win the daily battle to do my sweaty workout for 30 to 35 minutes on the treadmill, I can still succeed in my daily exercise goals and don’t get the I Flunked Exercise Today Blues.

    I have learned by experimenting that the sweaty workout at least 4 days a week still makes a huge positive difference for me physically and cognitively. Shucks. I’m not a runner, so I use the incline feature to make my walking a real workout. But I didn’t do the workout today and have felt rather lethargic. I was getting the I Flunked Exercise Today Blues but thanks to Striiv, I’m still achieving my current exercise goals: “Good” is walking at least as many steps as my current average, which is 6,225. “Very good” is walking at least 7000 steps. And “Awesome” is walking 10,000 steps. Right now I’m at 7,167 steps. I’m not done yet.

    Today when I plugged in my Striiv new features showed up – the races with Waddles et al. Very cool feature. It’s a great addition. Thanks very much for StriiV.

  • Becci says on April 18, 2012 at 12:16 pm

    I asked for Striiv for Christmas and haven’t been without it since. The charity donation feature was a big influence in my decision to ask for this product. Striiv is a great motivator to stay active throughout the day and I use all the features. I’m hoping for new options related to activity challenges and MyLand. I’ve purchased and built on all the available islands and would also like to have more activity challenge choices. When will these upgrades be available?

    • Striiv Admin says on April 18, 2012 at 4:38 pm

      Becci,
      Thank you. We are releasing an update for Striiv software in the coming weeks. Be sure to keep syncing your Striiv.

  • Shawn says on March 31, 2012 at 6:19 pm

    I have had my Striiv for 25 days now and have walked over 200,000 steps and over 100 miles. I love it. The Striiv really motivates me to get out and walk. I have unlocked both the Lowlands and the Highlands and have filled all of my island with plants and buildings. I guess I will have to sell off some of my plants and buildings so that I can build bigger ones that take more energy to build up. The Striiv is the best gift I ever gave to myself.

  • Pamela McAuliffe says on March 26, 2012 at 8:05 pm

    I have had myt Striiv for approximately one month. I LOVE it! The motivational factor has been very important for me. I will NOT miss 10,000 steps each day, huge accomplishment for me! I am actually getting about 12,000 per day and have supplied over 20 donations of clean water for latin american children. Just started getting into the game and am enjoying it. Very creative device. So, thank you, thank you and thanks again!

  • Terry Ruckman says on March 26, 2012 at 7:25 am

    A customer at the coffee shop at worked at came in one day to show a co-worker and I this new toy she got, we were very impressed by the new toy. At X-mas she came in and gave my co-worker and I a gift. The new toy that got me off the couch. Stiiv has this wonderful island game on it that requires you to walk and beat goals to get energy to build stuff, the next thing I knew we were talking about how many dragons, tigers, and birds we had. At some point the walking and stairs became fun, and with the new beta test the personal changages are even more fun.
    Thanks Striiv

  • Carolyn says on March 18, 2012 at 12:52 am

    I just want to say that this is the most wonderful gift I’ve ever received. I got it for Christmas, and have grown more and more attached to it. I work at a desk for 8 hours a day, and you could definately say that my lifestyle was inactive. This awesome gadget not only feels good in your hands, it sits flat in your pocket (and I will no longer buy pants without front pockets). Instantly, you can see how many steps you’ve done in a day, how many stairs, number of calories burned, miles walked, and number of minutes of exercise. I’ve worked my way up to over 7,000 steps a day, and I love the fact that my efforts are donating polo vaccines! If I were to lose this gadget, I’d order another one instantly. You do need to stay on top of version upgrades, but it does all the other work, including resetting to 0 every night at midnight! Love it!

  • Trisha says on March 9, 2012 at 10:31 am

    I have to say this is my 3rd pedometer in 2 years. The 2nd that I could use in my pocket. But the 1st that I have used that has me wanting to log in 10000 steps a day. My other 2 have batteries that constantly needed to be replaced. One of those would have me log in a code when I reached 10000 steps to earn prizes but geesh it would take forever to get enough points to earn anything. But the Striiv in a word SUPERB. My most favorite parts are the challenges. I have had my striiv 1 week and I have been able to complete all the easy,med, hard challenges everyday. I reach at least 10000 steps a day. I walk every chance I get. I am kicking myself for wasting my money on those other 2 pedometers. But I am thrilled to have found this one. The charity and myland are awesome features. My walking doesn’t just benefit me and that is a great feeling that my steps can make a big difference. I am recommending this to my family ease of use and all you need to do is put one foot in front of the other. Thank you Striiv for helping me make a positive change in my life and the world.

  • Gail Hellums says on February 8, 2012 at 9:31 pm

    I have COPD. Before I got the striiv I was barely moving. I did not know how bad it was until the first day I used it and got under 500 steps that day. Since Dec I have won lots of challenges, walke across the Golden Gate bridge several times and just this week the Vegas Strip. Granted, it probabley takes me much longer than the average person but I am so proud of my progress. Stiiv makes it fun; I really like the “short” challenges. This has worked very well for motivating me. I feel like I may be getting my life back!

    • Debbi Bennett says on February 29, 2012 at 12:19 am

      Hi Gail,
      I too was very lethargic before I started the Striiv challenge. I knew I had to do something or I was in line for illness. I have now been using my Striiv device over two months and I am still thrilled. Last Saturday I walked a total of 4 miles and was amazed when I saw that. I take challenges, use the stair almost exclusively now, park the farthest away from an entrance and walk on my breaks instead of looking for food. The key is to build up your activity a few steps, a few minutes at at time. Keep going!!!!
      Debbi
      P.S. After hard work and taking many different challenges, I just purchased Turtle Island.

    how do i know that someone is getting water i got it just for the helping feature

    • Striiv Admin says on January 24, 2012 at 12:52 am

      We have partnered with GlobalGiving.org and organization independent of Striiv and one of the most highly rated charity portals. As you walk with your Striiv and then sync your donations to the Striiv Service your completed walkathons and those of all your fellow Striivers are collected each month. We then send a check for each of the three GlobalGiving charities. GlobalGiving disperses those funds directly to the grassroots organizations working in the field. In the case of the Water charity, currently funds are being sent to the Sodis organization. For more information on all three charities being funded check out the GlobalGiving site: http://www.globalgiving.org/striiv/.

      If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact Striiv CustomerCare – customercare@striiv.com.

  • Val says on January 17, 2012 at 6:05 am

    I love the Striiv – it totally motivates me. Is their any reference manual to the Myland game, like how to attract or get animals.How much energey is needed once you build or plant something. Right now I’m learning by trail and error and its frustrating.

    • Striiv Admin says on January 24, 2012 at 1:32 am

      Val,
      Spoilers! ;-) A significant part of the game is working through the puzzle of which plants & buildings give you which animals and how often. We want the game to last for you, to continue to challenge you. We have created a tutorial video: http://www.striiv.com/learn/?vid=myland to assist with some of the aspects of the game. You have an excellent point on along with the cost and reward for a fixture it would be helpful to add the energy cost to complete. I have added that request to the Enhancement list for consideration.

  • Andrew Fritz says on January 17, 2012 at 2:04 am

    i think that striiv myland should be social and interactive. You should be able to download your land to a website where you can interact with other people (go to war, have alliances, etc). This would make it much more fun.

    • Striiv Admin says on January 24, 2012 at 1:33 am

      Andrew,
      Excellent suggestion. We are working on expanding the social aspects of Striiv. I have added your request to the list for consideration.

  • Lee says on January 17, 2012 at 12:30 am

    My sister gave this to me for Thanksgiving, and it’s been by my side ever since. I just did the upgrade today and finally have Turtle Island! I am already active, but I find myself doing more because I’m self-competitive, and this device is the best thing for someone like me.

    I just wish there were more explanations on how to work things. I’m not a gamer or a tech person, so I needed help figuring it out. I’m on Twitter, and the @striiv person helped me, which was fantastic.

    Love this so much! Only 2M away from Turtle Island and 600K from unlocking an island challenge that’s worth 1M points to get some creature.

    The best of luck to you all! I’m so hooked!!

  • Debbi Bennett says on January 16, 2012 at 2:05 pm

    Love the new activity counter and challenges! I have been Striiving for a month and I have gone from about 1000 steps a day to over 7000. Plus stair climbing. This is great. My blood sugar averages have gone from over 250 down to the 140′s. You should see me and my sis alternating going up stairs with racing across the room.
    I am so pleased tha the Striiv company is downloading new islands and goals to keep me revved. So glad I bought this device.

  • Robin lash says on January 13, 2012 at 8:13 am

    I love my Stiiv! After buying one for my mom for Christmas I decided I wanted one too. It has fully motivated me. I now go out the back way of my apartment and walk around it. I find so many ways to get extra steps like walking every isle at Target. But before you buy one warn your family because yes it makes you pace around the house like a crazy person!

  • Susan says on January 5, 2012 at 4:09 am

    I was lucky enough to WIN my Striiv a few weeks ago, and I absolutely love it. What a great combination of pedometer, charity component, games and challenges! It has really helped me remember to MOVE MORE daily. Thanks for making this great product!

    • Joshua says on January 18, 2012 at 10:46 am

      I totally agree…I love my Striiv device and it’s only been two weeks. I never had time to go to the gym and was definitely out of shape and frustrated with how I had let myself go. Just this last week, I’ve walked and taken the stairs more than in months combined. I can now make it to my office on the 12th floor without dying. Everyone thinks I’m nuts when I tell them I’ll walk the 12 flights but this is exactly the way I can workout. Thanks again for helping me realize that I don’t have to go to a gym to get a workout–there’s gravity and 5-10 here and there.

  • Judy says on January 4, 2012 at 6:55 am

    I love my Striiv and the customer support that comes with it. I do wonder though how it calculates stairs and running. I do not run at all but get some running credit. I take stairs occasionally in my mostly sedentary job but not often and seem to get more credit than the actual stairs taken.

    I do though now go in through another door and do a couple of laps around the office just to win a challenge LOL. I can’t stop raving about the product.

    I hope the price point will drop once the popularity increases.

    I also would like to be able to mirror the Striiv screen on the computer. It would be cool to be able to fully see the world I am building without squinting.

    • Striiv Admin says on January 6, 2012 at 2:15 am

      Thank you, so glad to hear you and your Striiv are bonding! :-) The stairs counts are detected through a combination of sensors. The Striiv can tell you are walking and that you are going up. You may get stair steps if you walk up a street that has a steady incline for example. So for those of you that doing a bit of hiking you will see stairs credit as you move up and down hills. Also, be sure you are syncing your Striiv regularly. This backs up your data, completes your Walkathon donations AND makes sure your Striiv has the most recent software. We will soon be delivering the new 1.1 version of the Striiv software with fun new motivating features.

  • Julie Franke says on January 1, 2012 at 8:37 am

    I love this little gadget. I used my iphone to track my miles logged each day–trying to hit 10,000 steps. It helps me adjust my lifestyle to ensure I hit the steps each day. My boyfriend got me this for XMAS because he knew using my iphone was too heavy and clunky and I had to remember to turn it on to track. This is a terrific gift and idea. Hurrah!

  • chris says on December 31, 2011 at 9:33 am

    I am not able to walk due to a foot problem, but I am able to workout on the ellipitcal. I was wondering if I put striiv in my pocket, if I would get a fairly accurate reading?

    Thanks,

    • Striiv Admin says on January 24, 2012 at 6:50 am

      Chris,
      Striiv is optimized for real world walking, running and stairs. We have many people using the Striiv successfully on an elliptical machine with our latest 1.1.1 software release.

  • nathalie says on December 26, 2011 at 5:28 am

    this is the 1st time i ever heard of this product. I just recieved for christmas 2011. I like the fact that when you move you earn energy for the game. I am looking foward in finding out how many steps i walked. Currently I am on weight watchersand with the combinations together i know i will get rid of more weight.

  • Mike says on December 11, 2011 at 9:47 am

    I am a personal trainer so I am fairly motivated to stay fit…but I have been using the Striiv for a few weeks now and love it! It actually pushes me to walk that extra mile; literally. I like to see the steps increase which gets addicting. Great product, thanks! It really keeps me moving all day long!

    • Striiv Admin says on December 11, 2011 at 11:43 am

      Thank you for sharing your story! Happy walking!

  • Jo Thompson says on December 10, 2011 at 5:19 am

    I am a grandmother, too, and not much of a gamer. I am sure with more instructions about how to play MyLand, more of us older folks would become addicted to gaming and do even more exercise because of that. Great product…thank you!

  • CeCe says on December 5, 2011 at 7:23 am

    ordered my Striiv today. I am an over weight 60′s grandmother who still works full time sitting in front of a computer all day. Can’t wait to get “hooked” on watching the steps I take each day and making a conscious effort to increase them. I love the idea of the steps I take helping to contribute to those in need. That is a great motivator for me! Thanks so much for a way for me to be a part of something much bigger in helping the world I live in.

  • Joyce says on December 4, 2011 at 7:28 pm

    My land is filling up with plants and I love it. I’m trying to plant a money grove and mermaid topiary. I have the money, but when I try to dig a spot, it won’t give me any circles to select. Help please, thanks!

    • Striiv Admin says on December 5, 2011 at 9:51 pm

      Joyce, Congratulations! You have been doing a lot of walking for your island to be so full.

      Different buildings and plants take different amount of space. To plant a mermaid topiary or Money Grove you will need to either move some plants or fixtures or sell some to make room.
      If you haven’t opened the additional areas of the island currently covered by fog. To unlock the Lowlands and Highlands you need to complete quests. Quests are accessed by clicking on the scroll icon in the upper-right corner of the game screen. There are three different levels of quests and both of the quests for unlocking the highlands and lowlands are considered “hard” quests. There are a number of different quests, so you will have to click on the spin button at the bottom of the quest page to find the ones to unlock the highlands and lowlands.
      Happy Walking!

  • Judy Burns says on December 2, 2011 at 6:23 am

    Love my Striiv. This by far is the best pedometer I have owned. The others stopped working or had inaccurate data results. I love seeing my efforts pay off by helping others. I am going to purchase one for my sister, so we can help each other get healthy.
    Thanks for a great product

  • Mike Allen says on November 30, 2011 at 4:14 am

    How do you accept the Unlock Highlands or Lowlands Quest? I am glad to see above how to complete them, but how do you accept them in the first place?

    • Striiv Admin says on December 2, 2011 at 6:48 am

      Mike,
      Thanks for asking, Love MyLand questions.

      Unlocking the fogged in Lowlands and Highlands of your MyLand island is a Quest. You must first unlock the Lowlands and then you can unlock the Highlands.

      Quests can be viewed by clicking on the scroll icon in the upper-right corner of the game screen. There are three different levels of quests and both of the quests for unlocking the highlands and lowlands will be found in the “Hard” roller. To find the Unlock Lowlands you may need to tap on the spin button at the bottom of the quest page. Keep tapping spin until the right one appears.

      To unlock the Lowlands you will need to build 2 new Fountains of Youth. Any Fountains you may already have built will not fulfill the Quest requirement. To unlock the Highlands you will need to build 2 new Greek Parthenons.

      Translation: Lots of walking! Woo Hoo get started and have fun!

      • Chris says on January 10, 2012 at 1:19 am

        I’m glad I read this tip before buying any “Fountains of Youth”. When clicking on the “Lowlands” while it is foggy, the instructions for unlocking the “Lowlands” is confusing and ambiguous (hence Mike’s question being asked). In the next Striiv firmware update, you may want to make it more clear how to unlock the “Lowlands”, similar to the description you just wrote above. I think many people are confused about this.

        • Striiv Admin says on January 24, 2012 at 4:17 am

          Chris,
          Agreed we have clarified the message when clicking to state you have to accept the Unlock Lowlands quest. We will be making additional changes to the software in the future to further ease the process for Striivers.

    I have a question, who pays for the charity. I love the idea and it is my motivation, but who actually gives the money and who is in charge of getting it too the organizations

    • Striiv Admin says on November 29, 2011 at 1:21 am

  • Linda Ford says on November 24, 2011 at 10:26 am

    I use a Recombinent bike and found that my Striiv does indeed count when I am pedalling. I was thrilled to see that!

    • Striiv Admin says on December 23, 2011 at 8:33 pm

      The Striiv will detect movement on a bicycle, but Striiv is optimized to detect steps: Walking, running and going up stairs. So while you will get credit for movement on a bike it is not an accurate representation of that activity.

  • Linda Ford says on November 24, 2011 at 10:24 am

    I’ve been using my Striiv for 4 days now and love it! I find myself getting up out of my chair during the commercials and marching in place in order to reach my goal for the day. I have found it to be very motivational!

  • Donna Ludwig says on November 22, 2011 at 6:20 pm

    My first day using the Striiv. Looking forward to getting healthy before the summer gets here.

  • Mona Stearns says on November 11, 2011 at 9:47 pm

    I have just received my striiv today, I am looking forward to the competition with myself. Can anyone tell me how to clear totals from day to day or is this function automatically done?

    • Striiv Admin says on November 11, 2011 at 10:13 pm

      Mona,
      So excited you are just starting your adventure with Striiv. The Striiv resets your daily totals everyday at midnight. Each days totals are tracked in your Charts and Stats applications. With the Charts and Stats apps you can track your progress over the days, weeks and months of walking. Happy Walking!

  • Patricia Rice says on November 8, 2011 at 10:16 am

    Greetings,
    I am enjoying Striiv and it’s motivational features. It does help me to be more aware of my activity level and makes moving more fun. I’m not sure how to open up the Lowlands. I have built the Fountain of Youth but the Lowlands are still closed. What else is needed?

    • Striiv Admin says on November 9, 2011 at 5:35 am

      Patricia,

      So happy to hear you are having fun with your Striiv.

      To unlock the Lowlands you must accept the Unlock the Lowlands Quest. To complete the quest you must build 2 Fountains of Youth. You are 50% there!

  • Debra Ryan says on November 6, 2011 at 7:19 am

    I am really enjoying using my striiv! It does tend to bring out the competitive nature in me, some think that is not always a good thing. But, I do because it is me competing against myself via this little device- I love it! I would be great if this device would auto log to my fitness step log that I have committed to at work- can you work on that, please :)

    • Striiv Admin says on November 8, 2011 at 7:26 am

      Debra,
      Thank you! Love hearing about your experiences with Striiv. And thank you for the product suggestion. We are very excited to hear from our customers about new functionality they would like to see in their Striiv.

  • Fay Hoefing says on November 6, 2011 at 5:00 am

    I’m interested in getting one but I’m also wondering if it counts bicycling miles.

    Thank you for your time.

    Fay

    • Striiv Admin says on November 8, 2011 at 7:25 am

      Fay,
      Thank you for the question. For our initial launch of Striiv, we have focused on walking, running and stair steps. We are very interested in hearing from our customers about additional activity types they would like to have their Striiv track. Bicycling is a popular request for future features.

  • Jeannie Delamater says on November 4, 2011 at 7:15 pm

    I am an active person who exercises about 5 days a week. Your product interests me however because I do a lot of walking at work. I like the idea that while I’m working I could also be donating to a good cause! I’m considering purchasing your product.

    • Striiv Admin says on November 4, 2011 at 8:24 pm

      That is great! Well we certainly do not discriminate against the already active! Everyone deserves to have fun! Thank you for the post!

  • watches says on November 3, 2011 at 8:06 am

    Very helpful info. thanks so much, i just need it

  • karenb03@aol.com says on November 3, 2011 at 2:03 am

    I got just my Sriiv yesterday and so far I love it! I used my badge holder from work and I threaded it through the key chain ring and then I could clip it on the waist of my pants. Now it’s secure and will fasten to any pants, pockets or not!

    I love seeing my progess and I also love the ability to have my steps count towards a charity!

    I really like this product!

    The charity thing is the lamest thing I’ve ever seen on a product. Can’t you just make a cool device without throwing in gratuitous political nonsense?

      John,
      Thank you for the feedback, we appreciate hearing from diverse perspectives. Our goal at Striiv is to motivate you to move. With the amazing range of Striiv users there are different triggers to make fitness fun for different types of people. We have built in several types of motivation into the Striiv experience. There are trophies which celebrate you reaching step, distance,calories burned milestones. There is the MyLand game, where your movement powers your progress. And there are personal challenges, where you can select from Easy, Medium or Hard challenges to walk 100 steps in 10 minutes or to climb 30 stairs in the next 15 minutes. And then for those who are motivated by charity, but have difficulty finding the time to complete walking marathons or finding the sponsors, we offer the Walkathon app. With Striiv, all of our apps are individually designed to get you moving up off the couch and together they create multiple layers of motivation. In that way, Striiv is tailor-made to your experience. Users can select which apps they connect with the most and use those apps to motivate activity throughout the day.

        i love the charity app! it makes me move more than the other things! The only question I have is what exactly is a parking spot in terms of square feet? Also, what does it mean to save it?

        • Striiv Admin says on January 24, 2012 at 12:59 am

          Thank you Andrew,
          A parking lot size is approx. 9×11 ft. Completed Rainforest walkathons are currently funding through GlobalGiving the African Rainforest Conservancy’s project in Tanzania. For more information GlobalGiving has published this page linking to the specific charity funded by Striiv walkathons: http://www.globalgiving.org/striiv/

    does this measure distance for bike and eliptical use. that would be perfect if it did. ths.

    • Striiv Admin says on October 28, 2011 at 8:00 pm

      For the launch of the Striiv we have focused on walking, running and stair steps. We will continue to expand Striiv’s ability to reward additional categories of your movement.

    Just got my Striiv and started wearing it today. Now my wife wants one. Really excited to tell other people about a great way to make a difference in such a passive way. Looking forward to someday hopefully being able to walk, run, and climb for the charities I already support. But I am more than happy to enable donations for clean water and your other organizations as well for now.

  • Carol Morin says on October 27, 2011 at 7:33 am

    Have received my Striiv and am anxious to start using it; do you anticipate the download app to be available shortly (i.e., within a few days?), and will all steps, etc., be uploaded at that time? Once uploaded, does Striiv start a new count? Thanks.

    • Striiv Admin says on October 28, 2011 at 8:04 pm

      Striiv Sync for Windows is available for download at striiv.com/start. Your Striiv will rest its daily counts each night at midnight, so when you wake it is ready for you to grab and go. Your Striiv stores all your data, you can sync daily, weekly or longer.

  • robin raskin says on October 18, 2011 at 7:33 pm

    I’m loving my Striiv and averaging about 5,900 steps a day! Yeah!
    Can’t wait for the dashboar experience to be complete.

  • Denise Foy says on October 18, 2011 at 8:31 am

    I just ordered one. Can’t wait until it arrives. Wish website had mode info on how it works

  • Ruth Mc says on October 13, 2011 at 2:06 am

    What kind of battery does it use and how often do you need to change it? Does it recharge? Does a recharger come with it?

  • Eton Lin says on September 22, 2011 at 8:30 pm

    Hi, I was just wondering whether there is more information about the philanthropy model Striiv is planning to employ? What is its fundraising structure? And how does the model attract more donations on a sustainable basis?

    Thank you very much :)

    • Striiv Admin says on September 24, 2011 at 5:55 am

      Eton,

      Thank you great questions. With Striiv we want to make sure that every steps you take really counts as a donation to charity — at no cost to you. All donations are paid for corporate sponsorships. Striiv is going to be the first corporate sponsor. This reflects our company values by effecting change and making a positive impact on people’s lives. Striiv will start with three charities at launch, and users will be able to update their device with new charities in the future. We are creating a Movement around Movement.

  • Heather Quillen says on September 9, 2011 at 6:05 am

    This is so exciting, for so many reasons! This is a game changer, excuse the pun….:-) It is smart technology with real purpose and compassion… It says a lot about the creators too, like….. smart, with purpose and compassion. Thank you, the benefits will be far reaching…and for many!

  • Larry says on September 6, 2011 at 10:42 pm

    Looking forward to using my new Striiv.
    Very cool and helpful device!

    I love my new exercise program. I’m walking more each day and actually find excitement in surpassing previous totals. My water donations, although not very high at the moment, add another level of satisfaction in my life. I seem to be a games player. My Island will soon be lush and hopefully will support a lot of wildlife. I guess I’m becoming addictive,

    Thanks so much.

  • Lisa says on September 1, 2011 at 1:31 am

    I totally agree with this!

    I am always lazy to go to the gym, but I would love taking the stairs or walking to lunch if that would help me get my daily exercise.

    Thanks guys! I will reserve my own striiv and I will tell my friends too about this cool product..

  • Laura Cornish says on August 31, 2011 at 7:39 pm

    I saw that my friend Hiedi had “liked” you guys on fb and wondered what Striiv actually was. To my total delight, I discovered you are a fitness/activity counter that also gives back to the world community. I am a very physically active 47 year old mom of 3 who LOVES the idea that all the steps I take each day (hiking, running, walking, etc.) could actually be doing some good in the world. I know the good it does for me and my family, so being able to enhance that with a bit of philanthropy is downright irresistable! can’t wait to get my hands on one of these!!
