About Us

Our Story

It all started with an idea for a small and lightweight fitness tracker that could make your life better. Our founders Curt von Badinski, Peter Twiss, Mike Strasser and Eric Strasser, realized that, as a team, we could bring Motiv Ring to life. Soon after, Motiv was officially born, a company driven by the mission to make simple devices people use to keep living better.
