Long post - sorry.
When I went to set up my resolutions I was rather confused by the 2020 figures I was being shown. I took screenshots which state…
I’d walked 1,338,073 steps. Really? My pedometer app says 6,337,510 (and that failed to work for a week leading up to Christmas, so I’m probably missing 160,000). My highest MONTH was 804,332, so the annual figure for Sweatcoin is well off!!
I covered 633.56 miles. Again, really? I GPS tracked 2,527.86 miles, and that doesn’t include walks to/from local shops, around the shops, around the house, or moving around the office at work (key worker so nothing’s changed significantly for me).
I earned 6,980 coins. That I’ll have to accept as a possibilty. I had one month on Trouble Maker, but other than that I’ve been on Breaker, So 20 coins a day for the entire year would be 7,300 - but I know I didn’t make it every day.
I burned 66,904 calories. And another ‘really?’. My fitness watch (which calculates from my heart rate) says approaching 370,000. That difference covers more than a few pizzas
It also informs me my best month was December with 752,238 steps. My pedometer says 517,758 - but it’s also the month I may have lost 160,000-ish, so I’d have accepted 670,000. 752k+ sounds high to me.
So I set my resolution as 7,000,000 steps at a fixed target (expecting that to mean an average of about 19,178 a day all year long).
For some reason when I hit the ‘Insights’ button I’m informed my annual target is 8,166,666 steps (absolutely NO idea where that came from). For January I was given a monthly target of 583,333, with a daily average target of 18,817 steps, For February I have a monthly target of 583,333, with a daily average target of 20,900 steps.
The monthy target figure is my selected 7,000,000 divided by 12. But I’d expected the monthly target to vary according to the days in a month, with my daily average remaining the same for the whole year.
