Paid to Walk

Ask a Question

Apparently there are apps that reward you for walking. Anybody out there using them and if so which ones would you recommend?

Thanks Image

wonderingsoul I just did a quick Google search and this one came up

https://apps.apple.com/gb/app/sweatcoin-walking-step-tracker/id971023427

I’ve just downloaded it so we’ll see. Thanks for the chat topic, I had no idea this was a thing!

Found this article with a list of apps too:

My wife has used a couple, but gave up in the end never appeared to be rewarding. Would Definitely be interested in finding one that paid.

Howmuch I doubt I’ll be making much money from the app but it’s shown me my stats for the past week and I’m shocked at the 8th/9th - I knew I had a lazy weekend but this shows I was a proper sloth 🦥😂🙈

Definitely good always been aware of how much you walk. I do go over the top sometimes and reach 20,000 plus, then I just feel ill. 74 steps is impressive, I might try to do less than that one day.

Howmuch Tbf when I do walk I go at a good pace (as if I’m really late!) and I think that’s better than the amount of steps. The 10,000 a day that everyone aspires to is just a marketing thing anyway

snoogans888 My wife and daughter do want to walk a lot faster than me, I blame my poorly hip. I am impressed that these days I can keep up a pace going up a hill, better than I could 15 years ago. So much fitness advice is just general, if you can see an improvement in yourself that is what matters to me. I am not competitive but I do like putting numbers on things steps counts are good to look back on as well as the speed you achieved.

Howmuch that’s great you’re getting out and about even with a poorly hip! And kudos to you for going up hills. They say walking on an incline has so many benefits - I get a double whammy with pushing a buggy up a steep hill 😅

Yeah I have heard about these in the past but sure a few of the health insurance companies stopped them.

I did a challenge where I had to do a Million Steps in 3 months (average 12000 a day). I did it but it takes a lot of time out of the day. Doing housework didn’t register much on the Fitbit. I felt much healthier too, but I haven’t kept it up!

I go out most days for a 3 hour walk. Not sure how many steps I do while walking, so I will download this app. Thanks for sharing MelissaLea1963 Image
