LOL got to admit I’m not much of a gamer. The only game I ever had any interest in was Unreal Tournament And that was the game of the year edition 2004 I think . To me Nerf is a Company that makes strange shaped footballs and various toy projectiles out of foam.
I’m pretty sure there is no conspiracy in action here. The reason for the newer mobiles being required is because of the motion processor chips used and the data the chips offer. Sweatcoin offer incentive to motivate regular exercise. If they put users to disadvantage, it would demotivate users. As far as I’ve seen, they are genuinely invested in improving health of users rather than just making money. to be honest it is a major difference that sets Sweatcoin apart from other app devs with similar style apps.
The verification algorithms are used to try and ensure users generate Sweatcoins with genuine human exercise and prevent cheating. Basically, putting a true value to human movement.
In terms of timers, the reason I stick to this is because sitting down for too long without any movement can lead to increased stiffness, poor circulation and lead to reduced mobility over time. When I sit down at my desk I just say “Hey Siri, set a timer for half an hour” One of the Apple devices on my desk will set a timer going and then once the timer alarm goes I just stand up for a bit, go and make a coffee, grab a biscuit, whatever really just to get a bit of movement going. I don’t particularly keep a strict to 2 minutes, I just generally don’t like to waste too much time when I have a lot of work on and even 2 mins to stand and stretch can make all the difference.
I spent many years struggling with mobility, now I’ve got it back I’m not really in for giving it up again.
To be honest, that is one of the primary reasons I like to try and help other users. I’ve been at the low mobility point, struggling to even cross the road to the shop and relying on a walking stick to try and stay upright. If I can help, motivate or inspire other users to embrace mobility and take that daily exercise, perhaps it can help prevent them from ending up struggling as I had to and improve general health and wellbeing.
At present, the Apple Watch app only runs on gen2 or later AW devices and uses the older outdoor algorithm in the same way that your 6s does. Word is that there are plans to rework the Apple Watch app but I couldn’t speculate as to if this is to include indoor conversions or not.
