Getting started with Challenges is easy. Join a team challenge and aim to complete your Stand, Move, and Exercise rings.

The more you move, the more you’re rewarded.

Trouble syncing data from previous days.
I did a couple of late night workouts and noticed that my iPhone Activity App (to which this App syncs) tally for move (calories) and exercise (minutes) did not match what was in this app. It fails to update the data for any activity that happens between the last sync of the day and midnight. In other words, if it syncs at 11:40 pm, and again at 12:01 am, the activity that occurred between 11:40 and midnight is not updated in this App, no matter how many times I try to sync. Now that I am aware of this issue, I will manually sync just before midnight when I am working out late at night. However, it would be nice to see this issue addressed in future updates.
Suggestion for update
This app is a great motivator and works well most of the time. The major problem I see is not really with the app, but with people who cannot follow directions. The app needs to be updated so that challenges set as individual challenges do not support teams. Right now, all of the individual challenges I have been a part of are completely invalid because people sign up in teams and invalidate the challenge. Truly losing my motivation to sign up at all because of this problem. App developers, please find a way to distinguish between individual and group challenges in the app. If that occurs, this app would be 5 stars for sure!
Needs a lot more flexibility
I REALLY wish that the competition metric could be set to steps or calories instead of points for closing rings. The concept of rings is too abstract. Why do competitions use a 370 calorie daily goal, and why is this not adjustable? You should be able to edit the name and description of teams and challenges after creating them. Names and descriptions should also be optional. The requirement to have teams is confusing in competitions with just a few people. There should be a way to search for challenges or to make a challenge public so that others can join without being explicitly invited (they would still need to be approved).
