The UK-based company specializing in health tracking gadgets and software approached Symfa with the front-end development project for smartwatches. Originally, the project was conceived as an application for people with diabetes to control the level of sugar and hemoglobin in the blood, and to keep these statistics at hand. However, the idea evolved to include more sophisticated functionality. Eventually, Symfa was contracted to deliver multifunctional health-tracking software (front-end only) for the smartwatches, which collects multiple metrics of body condition and suggests physical exercises.
Overall project advancement was smooth and unhampered. However, there were two challenges that the project team experienced.
Despite the device limitations, the application provides the user with a rich set of health data, which includes:
The scope of work was a perfect fit for a solo front-end developer project. Not only did our talent deliver all the specified features, but he also actively participated in the workflows establishment and feature elaboration. Thus, our front-end engineer optimized the View exercises option by cutting out some redundant steps, which added clarity and dynamics to this key system feature. All the proposals made by our team fit in nicely with the concept of the app and enriched its look and feel.
The project was managed by the PM on the client’s side; Slack was chosen as the communication method. Both parties were responsive and open for discussion whenever some extra clarifications were needed or risks arose.
Also, the client had regular calls with Symfa for progress updates and further development instructions. These efficient communication practices enabled flawless project delivery ahead of schedule.

Despite the involvement of a new developer in the middle of the project, he did an excellent job and completed development ahead of schedule. He also minimized the downtime by accomplishing other available tasks when, for example, we needed to fix something on the back end.
