Obesity is a major issue around the world. It is a main reason for several chronic diseases. Obesity can be stopped by encouraging people to do physical activities and making behaviour intervention regarding life style. Mobile fitness apps are emerging because of the unique features that are provided. They are seen as a vital tool to motivate people suffering from obesity to perform physical activities and make behaviour intervention regarding health and fitness. Augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) technologies have been used successfully in different kinds of mobile apps. This paper presents a systematic review of some of the most recent AG and VR researches in mobile apps. It discusses the main findings of applying both technologies in different fields of mobile apps. Based on this systematic review, a mobile fitness mobile app for obese individuals that consider both AR and VR technology will be developed.
