With sports facilities gradually opening, our athletes have begun returning to their usual training routines. One of the ways that they’ve been able to stay active and motivated is with their Fitbit devices. The Fitbit Charge 3 helps to reveal insights into their body, health and everything in between – so that they can start making changes that matter.

Throwback to the Athletes’ Village gym during the 2019 Sea Games with two of our athletes (Brian See & Eric Yee) training with their new fitness companion, the Fitbit Charge 3.

The device has been especially helpful during training as it allows them to easily navigate the dashboard to see daily activity stats and health metrics such as hydration, sleep and weight.
