When I signed up to the Resolution Challenge, I gave myself an annual target of 7,000,000 steps on a FIXED daily target.
My calculations say this should be 19,178 (and a teeny bit) a day. The system said 19,200 which was close enough I accepted it, even though it adds 8,000 to my annual total!
I have previously reported that in January I was given a MONTHLY total of 583,333 steps - which I eventually figured was my 7,000,000 divided by 12. This should have been 19,200 multiplied by 31 days (595,200). No response from Sweatcoin.
I then started February seeing TWO DIFFERENT monthly totals. In the Monthly Goal panel it gave me 583,333 again, but under the monthly results it showed me 568,393. This one took a LOT of puzzling, but I finally got there.
Annual total = 7,000,000
Deduct actual steps completed in January (747,673)
Leaves 6,252,327 to complete over the rest of the year
Divide by 11 (number of months left) and I get 568,393 (and a bit).
As well as being confusing, THAT IS WRONG! The fixed daily target I signed up to is 19,200 - and that means a monthly target for February of 537,600
So February is over, and I didn’t manage as much as I might have done as I was ill for several days. But my monthly total of 540,430 isn’t bad.
HOWEVER, the app says I’ve failed to meet my target!!!
Under the Monthly Results it now shows my target for the month as 583,333 - YOU WHAT? You CAN’T change targets at the end of a month with NO warnings!!!
Yes, my actual figure didn’t meet either of the targets you gave me at the start of the month, but it DOES cover my target based on the fixed daily average I accepted at the start of the year.
I have no idea what the prize draw prize for February will turn out to be (may not even have any interest in it), and I know the chances of winning are going to be very slim. But the point is that I SHOULD have a chance of winning as I have completed my fixed daily target for the month.
Oh, and I now have two different targets for March! At least I now know to ignore the lower one below the Monthly Results table, as it’s only going to overwritten as we move into April…
