BRISK WALKING BENEFITS YOUR HEALTH

We all know how important it is to be active. The good news is you don’t have to go to the gym or start expensive fitness programmes, walking counts too!

Just ten minutes of brisk walking every day can get your heart pumping and can make you feel more energetic, as well as lowering your risk of serious illnesses like heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Going for a brisk walk is a great way to clear your head and improve your mood.

Active 10s are simple to fit into your day, from taking the dog out to going for a lunchtime walk there are lot of opportunities to include brisk walking into your daily routine.

This app relies on your phone’s inbuilt sensors to measure your activity so you may experience varying levels of accuracy especially in older devices/operating systems. To improve accuracy, keep your phone in a pocket close to your body rather than in a loose coat pocket or bag.

Works just fine for me

This is a great little house and well-designed. Simple to use and very flexible. You can change your goal to 6 minutes, 8 minutes or whatever suits you. I think this is a wonderful way to get some exercise and have it be Fun! just IGNORE the negative reviews where people couldn't set it up, they should ask for help instead of whining here!

Like the concept

I think this is a good way to motivate yourself to be more active. However, the app is a bit slow to load, and the notifications could be improved. (Prompting me to open the app to check my status is not as good as actually telling me what my status might be, and a widget would be helpful too.)

The app seems to be hard on the battery; while I’ve only had it open a couple of minutes in the past day, it’s 10% of battery drain. Presumably it’s running frequently in the background. Is that really necessary or could the M processor’s step collection data, or Apple Watch input, suffice?

It doesn’t give you options of using location tracking only when using the app.

Was interested in trying out the app. Excited that it has a different approach than just counting the steps.

Unfortunately, the settings requires you to switch on “access the location” all the time. I tried choosing “only when the app is being used” but it doesn’t work.

I would like the app to track my location only if I’m using it. Not 24/7 or 365 days. Give users the freedom to choose when and where to use the app.
