The Striiv has worked on incorporating an interactive tool for motivating the user.

There is a special way Stiiv helps to motivate walkers; The company will donate to charitable causes depending on how much time you have walked. They are donating money from sponsors to supply clean water in South America, give out polio vaccines in India, and saving the rain forest. It does not cost you anything for your walking efforts to donated to the cause of your choice; however you do have to walk and then connect the Striiv to a PC to participate in the program. Other than that, a PC computer is not required for using the Striiv.
