    Yesterday, I started the Samsung Health Global Challenge for July. The challenge is to walk 200000 steps in the month. I am averaging 13000 steps a day so this should be quite easy for me.

    At the end of yesterday, 1st July, 6 people had already completed the challenge. Today the top walker is logged at 533000 steps over the two days.

    I have measured my pace and a normal walk is 120 steps a minute for me, a slow jog is 150 steps a minute and a sprint is 220 steps a minute.

    I would have to sprint for 20 hours each day to get 533000 steps over two days. Is it my device that isn't measuring enough steps or is the 533000 totally implausible?

    I joined last month and I had the same observation that normal walk is 120 steps a minute. When I look at the leader board I was surprised that they could walk that much in a day but then there is a possibility that some limitation of instrument could be exploited to get such at high number.
    Other possibility is that the person is working at a job that requires a lot of walking but even than achieving 250k steps in a day seems next to impossible. You may want to try to bike and see if that also add to the step counts, you may get your answer.
    I stopped focusing on that leader board and just make my target based on what I want to achieve to stay healthy.

    I hate leaderboards. Everywhere I go from, games to apps, someone has cheated to get to the top. Really? Was that worth your time? Are you so proud of yourself for getting to the top for something you didn't do?

    I do what wonderboy does. Stop looking at the board and focus on bettering yourself.

    I have just been enjoying the challenge every month. Yesterday my samsung health app updated and the challenge is gone. Has anyone else had this happen? If so, do you know a fix for it?
