About this app

Win up to $10,000 by making a "bet" on your own weight loss, or by participating in one of our many weight loss and fitness challenges. There’s a reason we paid out millions to our participants last year - our challenges are fun, effective, and people love to win money for losing weight!

Time and again, we've provided participants with the motivation to get healthier that they've been searching for. In fact, 45% of our participants report weight loss¹ when participating in a HealthyWage Challenge, with an average prize payout of $1,386². Oh, and we DO know the science behind it. We’re kind of nerdy like that!

Check out some of the features you’ll enjoy with the HealthyWage app:

- Take and post victory and before-and-after photos
- Participate with a vibrant community for support and accountability
- Keep track of your weight loss and your progress toward hitting your goal (and winning money!)

The concept is awesome and I'm very stoked to be part of this great and motivating way to lose weight. The app, however, leaves much to be desired; its just difficult to navigate and not user friendly at all. I want to add things like the weight loss plan I am using to reach my goal, no way to update this. I added my Fitbit, but there are no stats, the list goes on, it needs improvement to say the least. I just have to make sure it doesn't frustrate my journey because of it's current uselessness. I'm sure improvements are coming!!!

Hi Ruth, thanks so much for the input! We are working on improvements to make the app experience more consistent with the website experience. The app is 6 years newer than the website, so we honestly have just not had time yet to add all the web features, but we are working on it every single day. Keep an eye out for upcoming updates!

App can be glitchy and sometimes difficult to navigate, but overall a good experience. HW might want to consider finding a better way to navigate to the dashboard. I always have to be creative getting there and half the time I throws me out, only to make me log in again. I've uninstalled and reinstalled a number of times. Just needs some tweaking and it'll be perfect!
