I have an opinion piece in today’s Daily Telegraph about fitness trackers. A leading scientist has said there’s no real evidence for their accuracy and also claimed ‘walk 10,000 steps a day’ thing is a myth. I take issue with that despite the fact that I tested a bunch of trackers and found that most of them were pretty inaccurate. But their accuracy doesn’t matter to me.
A target of 10,000 steps makes me move more than I normally would; a must for better health. That piece of plastic on my arm (my current favourite is Withings Activite Steel, left) gives me a ballpark figure of how close (or far) I am from my activity targets and that’s something I can influence that day. If it’s a few calories and steps out – so what? When nothing else that day has gone to plan, I can at least bust out some steps and feel I have achieved something. Grant me that, Mr Scientist.
