Get ready to start tracking your physical activity. You can track in a few different ways:
- Activity Tracker: There are many popular activity trackers that will count your steps, as well as track your calorie expenditures and sleep. You can link your Fitbit or Apple Watch directly to the challenge site. Learn more here.
- Challenge App: You can download the app for our challenge software platform to automatically import your activity into the challenge every time you open the app. The app is available for Apple or Android devices. To find it, search for “Extracon Health Tracker” in your app store.
- Another Phone App: There are many free health applications that you can download to your phone that will track your activity. If you have an iPhone, you can use the Health App, which comes with your phone (you can then link the Health app right to the challenge site). There are other free health apps you can also use.
- Pedometer: This device counts steps. If you have one from a previous challenge, you can use it, or you can purchase one for less than $5.
