So my new phone has a built in heart rate monitor and health app with built in pedometer via it's accelerometer. One of the things the phone does is counts your steps for you. In case you haven't heard there is a big push in America right now to try to hit 10,000 steps per day to try to improve health in the country. I had overheard some ladies in an office the other day talking about how they were trying so hard to hit their 10,000 steps but just couldn't do it no matter how much they walked everyday. Today for the hell of it I turned on the pedometer app when I left the house and kept my phone in my pocket all day. I only had an 8 hour day and the app said I did 15,190 steps, walked 7.95 miles and burned off 1,057 calories. Has anyone with a newer smartphone or pedometer tried this? Just curious as to how different the numbers we'd come up with would be with all the varying types of routes we have.
