    Who uses one? I'm interested to know how many miles everyone walks everyday as a driver. There's a few in my center that say (according to their Fitbits) they walk between 7-10 miles per day! I must say that sounds a little high. Are those things known for accuracy?

    I walk between 10 & 12 miles a day when I work. I have a country route that I notoriously walk off a lot of stops from the apron. I don't think it's 100% accurate being that I'm still rolling at about 235pounds.

    One of my nieces wore hers while she was in labor. She refuses to say what the numbers were.

    Maybe you'd be 270 pounds without that mileage? LOL. I tell my wife that with the way I eat I'd be 300 pounds if I didn't work for UPS.

    I wish I had one. I'd like to compare results from a work week with a vacation week. It would explain why I feel so bloated and heavy on those Mondays after a vacation.

    The fitbit charge that I wore would count bumps in the road as steps. It read as high as 40k one day. New phones I feel are much more accurate and doesn't count bumps in the road as steps. Usually in 25k range daily. 1100 calories burned, ten miles walked.

    If you don't like that feeling you should start going to a gym. You feel amazing all the time AND you have way way less stress. I feel great, look great, and am almost stress free all the time. I attribute that to my daily gym workout.

    I hate gyms. I plan on having my own small workout area in my next house.

    I can understand that. It definitely helps. I've been preaching the workout gospel for years now but no one cares. It is literally the best stress reducer ever. I swear I'm almost stress free and its great

    It's right on the Iphone6. Don't even need Fitbit

    I average 23,000-25,000 steps per day on my route. It's about 13 miles

    I think my high was about 29,000.

    Just to give you an idea for all the drivers that cry about peak.

    My high during peak was 12,000. Gotta love helpers. Peak easiest 3-4 weeks of year

    Running is a stress reliever for me. But too much cardio ages people quicker.
