I keep the app's widget on the home screen of my phone, so that I can keep an eye on my progress throughout the day. It also tracks how many miles you've walked and how many calories you've burned. This is all from casual walking. I haven't gone for an exercise walk with it, but I plan on it this week.
The other cool thing about this app is that you can measure your stress level and how you sleep. I haven't used it for sleep yet. When I sleep with my phone I tend to ignore my alarm and over sleep!
The most steps I've taken so far have been 7,553. There was a festival that I attended and I did a lot of walking. Look at all those steps and calories! I can only imagine what this would look like after an exercise. I don't know if it would work on a treadmill, but I'll try it out and let you know.
You can also look back on your progress. I've done pretty good, obviously except for today, so far anyways. Wednesday I did a lot of walking between work properties. I can definitely tell when I'm too sedentary and need to get up for a walk.
I'm so glad that I have this app on my phone. It's definitely making me much more aware of how much I'm moving. Do you have a pedometer? How do you keep track of your movements?
