    Health and fitness are their own reward... but there's nothing like shoving those rewards in the faces of your friends!
    The Apple Watch has a built-in Activity app that tracks the calories you've burned, the brisk activity you've engaged in, and the frequency of your standing up and moving around. Do well and you're rewarded with an achievement. It's a great way to motivate people, and a type of gamification that feeds us the same sense of accomplishment we get when we solve a puzzle and make it to the next level. In classical terms, it's us against ourselves.

    Some people, however, aren't as self-motivated or self-disciplined. Some people are competitive and they don't just want to do well they want to do the best. That's where challenges come in.
