VidaOne offers nearly every feature you could want in a fitness tracker. For starters, the fitness software tracks a wide range of body measurements, including weight, age and body mass index (BMI). You can input specific weight-loss goals, if you have them, and use the journal to keep personal notes about your efforts. VidaOne also has a wellness-management feature that allows you to track your moods, sleep quality and medication use, all of which are important factors that can affect your overall health.

This exercise software makes it easy to gauge your progress on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. A calendar gives you a complete monthly summary of your nutrition and workouts. You can also view graphs and reports for all the data the software tracks.

VidaOne Diet & Fitness also offers some unique features that set it apart from its competitors. Most notable is its compatibility with popular mobile devices. Although you download VidaOne locally, the workout software syncs with Android, Blackberry, Windows Mobile, Palm and Apple devices. With the portability this affords, you can record your progress as it occurs, no matter where you are or when you enter information.

Similarly, the software syncs with many Polar heart-rate monitors and Garmin sport watches and GPS devices. You can download your workout schedule and any of your body measurements (e.g., BMR, BMI and LBM) tracked by these devices directly into VidaOne for a more complete health assessment.

Perhaps one of the best features of VidaOne Diet & Exercise is that it allows an unlimited number of users. This is notable because most fitness software applications limit the number of unique logins you can create. With VidaOne, the whole family can create a login and track their personal fitness.

When it comes to total fitness functionality, VidaOne Diet & Fitness reigns supreme. The fitness tracker has hundreds of exercises that you can use to build customized gym or home workout routines. Each one has detailed instructions on how to properly and safely perform them. You can also add or delete any exercises as you see fit and track the duration of and number of calories burned during each workout.

VidaOne provides healthy guidelines for attaining your goal weight. Once you have established your goal weight, this fitness software will calculate a realistic time period for the weight loss (or gain) you hope to achieve and the number of calories per day that you will need to record in order to stay on track.

VidaOne Diet & Fitness has several integrated diet plans that you can choose from, including ones that are vegetarian, plant-based, low-carb and based on the USDA Food Pyramid. No other fitness software we reviewed offers this; with other applications, you have to create your own diet plan by selecting your own assortment of foods.
When you use the workout software's meal planner, VidaOne will alert you to food choices that do not fit into the diet you have chosen. If you stray from the plan you have chosen, the software warns you if you aren't following your diet and suggests alternatives from its food database.

You can use the food organizer to customize your food requirements to include only the foods you know you should eat for the particular diet you have selected. You can add or delete foods at any time and take advantage of the meal-scheduling feature. You also can select which nutrients or dietary items you want to track, such as total carbs, protein, fat, calcium and cholesterol. There are even some more obscure nutrients such as phosphorous and potassium.

VidaOne's food database contains more than 7,500 unique items catalogued by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. While a few other products on our lineup boast larger databases, you aren't likely to find that VidaOne's database lacks many items. If you do, you can add any custom food item you want. You can also tag your favorites for single-click input in the future.
