  1. RunBet

    Hi! I have a brilliant idea. I love the dietbet, and have many friends and family who are successful. My problem is (though this is not a problem at all), is I don't need to lose weight. I think there should be a version of dietbet, where you bet on the distance you're going to run each day/week/month whatever. If I say I'll run 30 miles this week, there's always a chance that things happen and you don't get out, so you lose the bet. I think this could be very successful and I have many friends who would definitely…

      We have an update! We are currently running a StepBet Beta game that works with FitBit to encourage players to get stepping. We have thus far run two test games and hope to do another in October.

      Please let us know if you have any questions.

          • have a bet to hold us accountable to working out.

            Whether it's incorporated into existing bets, or a seperate bet altogether, I would love to have motivation to go to the gym. Perhaps having an affiliation with gyms across the country, or an app that tracks GPS acceleration for those that work out at home. That would be awesome.

                Hi Rebecca! Thanks for your suggestion! We are currently working on launching other “Bet” type games, like StepBet (for meeting your step goals) and a maintenance game (for those who want to maintain their weight loss). And more are planned too! Stay tuned to see what is happening with DietBet and WayBetter.

              • Calorie count Integration

                I saw the intergration with runkeeper. It would be great to have the ability to calorie count the daily food intake for your height/age. It is a major factor in helping individuals looks weight.

                for example: myfitnesspal.com

                  My college friends and I (busy Yale students) would like to compete to see who can reach a target of 8 hours of consistent sleep a night. Please add the functionality to compete for things other than weight (such as sleep, hours of piano practiced, etc).

                    Hi there! Thanks so much for your feedback! We will definitely look into this for you and let you know when we have an update on something like this! (It’s definitely in the works!)

                  • Vary Daily Carrot email content

                    Participating in two Dietbets at the same time that started days apart, and doing multiple bets one after another, I'm receiving the same Daily Carrot emails over and over again. Add different ideas and/or vary the order in which you receive them.

                    • New Daily Carrots!

                      I did two DB4's and the Daily Carrot was the same each day for both, and now on my third bet, I'm not even getting the Carrot anymore. It would be nice if they kept making different ones to make it interesting.

                        Currently have to slog through numerous Fitbit updates to see the human generated game comments. Would be better if the daily Fitbit downloads were handled as a single, expandable, entry.

                        • Tiered activity/weight

                          Incorporate activity. So you can choose to add 10,000 steps a day, on a tiered system, so part of the pot goes to those who achieves the 10,000 steps a day, and part to the weight loss.

                            We have an update! We are currently running a StepBet Beta game that works with FitBit to encourage players to get stepping. We have thus far run two test games and hope to do another in October.

                            Please let us know if you have any questions.

                          • The (Good Habit) Enforcer

                            There should be a post-transformer Dietbet that encourages keeping the weight off while not always encouraging weight loss. Some people (myself not included) cannot really lose anymore weight after they reach their goal and so they must stop dietbetting. Additionally, I personally know that weight yo-yoing is common and not fun. After every DietBet, I tend to slip into old habits and gain all of the weight back. It could be like a bonus round which encourages people to maintain and/or loss weight to keep their transformer goal weight!

                                Emily,

                                Thanks for the feedback. We’ve recently added more of the web functionality – including requesting payouts, connecting to other devices and much more. We’ll continue to add features over time with new releases, however the community will likely be a while before we’re able to do so.

                              • Create a "Submit Weigh in Later" Button to Click Out of Official Weigh in Reminders

                                I find it irritating that I am unable to click past the official weigh in reminders until I have weighed in. I cannot submit my initial or final weigh in until I am at home and at my scale and sometimes I want to view the comments or join in on the discussion, but I am unable to click past the reminder. I understand that this reminder is necessary, but a small "Submit Weigh In Later" button would be great!

                                  • Reflect Quick Update in all active games

                                    You can leave a quick update in a game, but you have to do this in all active games. You should make an option, like the weigh-in, to update all active games with the update. That'd be a timesaver for people with more than 1 active game.
