It is 8:45 am on September 1st, in Atlanta Georgia right now. The earliest time is the world is saying Japan and it is 9:45 pm there. I look at the Samsung health challenge and there are already people who have 156000 steps in the day. Usually considering that 1 minute walk counts about 100 steps on an average, I find it difficult to believe that someone has already covered 1560 minutes which is approximately equal to 65 hours of walk in 21 hours and 45 minutes of the first day. Can someone explain how this works? Or am I the only one who thinks that they have a big to manipulate something to track these steps? Because even if they run, they need to run constantly for 118 km in one day to cover so many steps. This is just absurd.
So, you want to know how cheaters cheat? To rack up fake steps you can sit on a couch and shake your wrist; attach your watch to an electric saw blade, power drill, paint can shaker, ceiling fan, metronome, dog, bike wheel, or hamster wheel. I'm sure you get the idea.
Yes it is absurb!! I just noticed this also for the November challenge...I guess I will be leaving the challenge and just sticking to friends and family challenges 🙃
