Our Story

How it all began

It all started with a cot, one too many bags of Doritos and a wedding band. Our CTO Curt had an idea for a small and lightweight fitness tracker that could make your life better.

In 2013, Curt asked old friends and colleagues – now cofounders Mike, Eric, and Peter – to meet up at a Palo Alto coffee shop. They realized that as a team they could bring Motiv Ring to life, a fitness tracker as light as a penny that you could wear all the time.

Soon after, Motiv was officially born, a company driven by the mission to make simple devices people use to keep living better.
