    I love how easy it is to track steps and get trophies for them. I also love the daily health tips that inspire me to live better.

    The integration with multiple applications for nutrition and wellbeing has helped me eat better and reduce my stress. As a user, I like how I can track my progress and rewards in one location.

    Cons
    It really wants to be connected to my cell and I refuse for security reasons. Since I refuse, I loose points which are required to get reduced costs on insurance.

    The step tracking is horrible, the connection with the device is horrible, I have to open it every evening or it will not download the steps. No, it does not download the steps of previous days.

    At times, the application fails to function and I am unable to get all of the information for the day entered.

    Helps Focus on Health and Fitness

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    I benefit from this app because it makes me aware of how sedentary I am at my job and it entices me to get up and move to earn rewards.

    Pros

    I love that this software allows me to keep track of my health and fitness along side my FitBit! Not to mention it's set up through my employer and we can earn up to $400 annually for participating!

    Cons

    There seems to be a few discrepancies when it comes to getting points toward your total score. Some of the tasks you can complete to earn points don't always work. My co-workers and I have noticed that I'll get points for completing a task and they will complete the same task and won't get the points. Other than that, I highly recommend!

    A platform with a well-executed vision that it has changed my behaviors.

    Reviewed a year ago

    I believe this platform delivers an engaging user experience, and based on my experience, the different applications have changed me for the better. Wellness is more critical than ever in today's environment, and this application keeps me logged in and engage in changing my life.

    Pros

    In comparison to other platforms intended for employee wellness, Virgin Pulse is easy to navigate, and most importantly is very easy to understand my rewards for using each application. Wellness challenges are engaging, and I enjoy logging in every day! The integration with multiple applications for nutrition and wellbeing has helped me eat better and reduce my stress. As a user, I like how I can track my progress and rewards in one location. The web integration to the nutrition application Zipongo is well implemented, and my spouse and I enjoy browsing for new recipes and planning our meals.

    Cons

    Navigating to other applications in the web platform is easy; however, using different applications in the mobile iOS app is confusing and challenging to navigate. As a user, I don't understand when do I need to enter my credentials for Virgin Pulse vs. the integrated applications like Zipongo or Whil.

    Virgin Pulse Review

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    It's great.

    Pros

    This is a great resource to help achieve health goals, especially if your employer is assisting you in reaching them through the financial gains. It is easy to use, and provides a lot of motivating and helpful information with the daily cards and whil.

    Cons

    The capabilities differ on the mobile site vs. desktop version. There are some things I prefer to do on the website when I can. Often times, my fit bit will not track my steps and I have to manually sync them.

    Easiest I’ve ever used

    Reviewed 7 months ago

    Intuitive, easy to use. I earn my HSA credits every term, usually way before the period is over, but I am diligent and find the whole process simple and motivating.

    Pros

    This software is intuitive and super easy to use. I have yet to be confused or mystified when using it, which happens often with me. It motivates me to exercise, eat right and live an overall healthy lifestyle. It takes about 2 minutes a day to read the daily cards (informative & helpful), and complete the healthy habits. I earn points towards a health savings account, HSA, which I can use towards health care expenses. My insurance is thru my husbands employer and that is how we started. We both find it very useful. I can’t recommend it enough!

    Cons

    Virtually nothing. There is health assessment form that I had to print out and get my Dr’s office to complete, but since I go once a year anyway, it wasn’t an issue.

    Virgin Pulse motivates me to be healthier

    Reviewed 5 months ago

    Virgin pulse has definitely motivated me to get out and walk more. The software is user friendly and for the most part works as it should.

    Pros

    This software makes it easy and fast to track my healthy habits (walking steps, sleep, calories etc.), deliver great health tips and recipes, as well as motivate me to want to make healthier choices like eating less and going for more walks. Its also nice you can compete against friends with the different healthy challenges that Virgin Pulse suggests.

    Cons

    Cannot really say anything too negative about this software. It's just so easy to use and it is geared towards your own personal settings. What is not to love?
