How can I measure my Kms or steps without a fitness app?
In case you don’t want to use a fitness app then you can calculate your Kms/steps based on an hour of walking, running or doing any of your favorite sports or physical activity that helps you to measure distance and manually log in to your account under ‘my fitness activity’. For example, An hour and 40 mins walk or 8kms walk covers an average of 10,000 steps, 40 mins running covers an average of 6.4 kms or 40 mins Swimming covers an average of 1.93Kms.
If you are a wheelchair user you can continue using the tracker you’ve been using till now but if the device measures in kms then you can convert them into steps and log it manually log. Alternatively, an odometer which can be purchased from a cycle or sports equipment store can be attached to the wheelchair and will monitor the distance covered each day or else you can calculate your minutes of moderate/vigorous activity as below:
- 10 minutes of moderate intensity activity covers 1000 steps or 0.8 kms
- 10 minutes of high intensity activity covers 2000 steps 1.44 kms
