Withings Health Mate

I have completely switched over from UP to Health Mate after Jawbone introduced their Smart-ass Coach. Today I earned my 1000 km badge. That means I have now accumulated roughly 1250000 steps on Health Mate without any additional hardware to the iPhone 6 Plus. I had clocked around 2750000 steps on UP when I started using Health Mate to record my weight with the Smart Body Analyzer and later my blood pressure. Now it's all in one place.

Since my desk is only a few dozen steps away from my bed I have no morning or evening commute that I could walk. Instead I walk 12 km at noon, mostly skipping lunch and a nap that I was used to. In the evening I add another 4 km walk before bed time. That's about 10 miles a day. Without a fitness tracker I am missing most of the other steps around the house, but they make up only about 10% of my exercise anyway.

Last week I spent a little more time than usual and went 34% higher than my 100 km goal. Friday through Tursday was even higher at 180000 steps and almost 150 km. I am holding up longer than I thought. Temperatures are still above freezing and we have not seen any snow so far. Depending on the type of winter we have this year, I will have to dial down a bit. But then I can add snow shoveling. ;-)

16km every day!? RESPECT!

Thank you. Last Saturday was only about 9 km, but more than 20 km on all other days.

I see traces of obsession here. :-) Im Ernst: Respekt!

Martin Kautz, 2014-12-01

Indeed. What a pitty we could not meet this year :-/ Would have loved to :)

Martin, Nachbarin sagt, ich sehe jede Woche jünger aus. ;-)

In terms of snow and ice I can recommend shoes from IceBug. At least you get a good grip; though, of course, they don't solve the freezing problem. ;-) Congratulaions, Volker.

Frag doch mal Deine Nachbarin, ob die nicht umziehen möchte? Bei uns imHaus ist noch was frei ;)

@Volker: Das mit der Nachbarin verbuche ich unter "Gamification". :-)
Frage: Welchen Schrittzähler kaufe ich nun meiner Frau (iPhone 5C)?

Martin Kautz, 2014-12-01

Frag sie. Er muss ihr gefallen. Und sie muss ihn wollen.

Volker Weber, 2014-12-01

Bestellt! Sie hat den pulseoximetrischen von Withings genommen...

Martin Kautz, 2014-12-01

Gute Wahl. Und heute auch günstig.

Volker Weber, 2014-12-01

Wow! Gratulation! Wir sollten uns mal wieder treffen. Wahrscheinlich siehst Du zwischenzeitlich jünger aus als ich. ;)

Bodo Menke, 2014-12-01

Soviel Du gerade arbeitest, kann das vorübergehend so aussehen. Aber ich habe ja doch gehörigen Vorsprung.

Ceci n'est pas un blog
