I’m all for exercising, and I realize that the big payoff is having a healthy mind and body! But wouldn’t it be great if say…after a week’s worth of jogging, you got…an iTunes gift card? Or a Sports Authority one? or maybe Hope Depot, if that’s your thing?
Well, that actually happens if you own a Switch2Health pedometer or pedometer watch!
I know, I can’t believe it either. I first saw this in Self or Shape Magazine. One of those. It’s pretty neat, I think. MAN I should have bought one before I left for Japan–we walk EVERYWHERE here. I would have racked up enough to buy a new pair of running shoes!
This is the pedometer watch, the S2H Replay:
and this is the regular pedometer, the S2H Step:
I’d totally recommend going to their respective sites to see the rules, it looks like there are different award rates for each device? I want to say…the Step gives you a code after 10,000 steps but the Replay gives you a code for an hour of activity. Interesting.
So what do you think? I want to say the Step is more for me, then I can wear it all day and running afterwards (and earn gift cards!). For most people, I’d say the Replay is more useful because it doubles as a watch. I plan on buying a wrist heart-rate monitor…so I think I’d feel a bit funny wearing two watches. Haha. :]
