This New Fitness App Will Reward You For Walking and Running

The brand new Bravera App offers fitness challenges to help you get great deals from local partners.

Ready to walk or run a total of 40km for a free body scan at Lifehub (worth $380!)? Or, how about walking or running 80km in 40 days to get 10% off a staycation! Consider it done.

Finding it hard to follow through with that “gym three times a week” new year’s resolution? What if we told you that there was a way to move more AND win exclusive deals and offers from your favourite stores and restaurants? Well, the brand new Bravera App promises exactly that! Bravera is a platform that offers users of any fitness level the ability to earn points through everyday walk and run data plus take challenges. Completing a challenge unlocks a whole host of different discounts, offers and perks.

The idea is to reward people for being active by converting walk and run data into points. Those points unlock rewards with local business partners. So whether you’re running 10k twice a week, or going for a nice hour-long hike every Sunday, you have an extra bit of motivation to keep that pep in your step.

Bravera fitness tracking app

Bravera links to your Apple Health (iOS) and Google Fit (Android) so it tracks all walk and run “distance” related exercise, from running and hiking to your daily commute from the MTR (available at iOS/Android app stores). Once you’ve completed a challenge, you get a QR code which can be used to redeem your offer. On top of challenges, you earn points as soon as you start moving (1KM = 10points), meaning your racking up points for rewards from day one.

Local partners include restaurants, bars, fashion retail stores, hotels and wellness partners. As a bonus, if you end up joining the subscription model, part of the premium membership fees go towards supporting local causes.

Sassy Perk: As a bonus to our readers, we’ve put together a little #TeamSassy10kChallenge. Run or walk 10km over three days, and you’ll receive a free upgrade and trial of a subscription account* (allowing you to convert even more points into rewards). Plus, Sassy readers who complete the challenge get 15% off Cafe 8.
