I’m still happy I downloaded the app but it’s not working correctly.
Initially I made the mistake of not doing continuous 10 minute brisk walks and it was frustrating me that there was no reward for achieving many times more than the 10 minutes. I’ve fixed that problem myself but still find it odd that there is no recorded/rewarded benefit for walking considerable distance with a high proportion of brisk minutes. It’s also a bit annoying that there is no compensation for incline.
So to my real problems.
I’ve been regularly hitting my brisk 2 x brisk 10 goal but no rewards have been forthcoming for continuity.
My other and most irritating problem is that today I did my regular two sessions of brisk 10 with a short gap between but the second took ages to register and told me that I had been merely walking rather than briskly. I time all brisk 10s independently of the app and have a set course so I questioned its accuracy. To try and see if it was really faulty I did two more after resetting the phone. It recorded some of the time but none showed as brisk.
What can I do?
I’d like to keep using this app as it could be useful not if it continues to rob me!
By the way how do you define “brisk” walking? My estimate is that 10 km/hour should be about right.
