How to log steps

STEP 1 – (Before the Challenge)  Set up, register – team name and members:

  1. Register the team name (Team Captain) on activetravellogger.ie
  2. Set up individual accounts (all team members*) to log steps; and
  3. Now you are ready to watch your progress and view leader boards on activetravellogger.ie.

STEP 2 (once the challenge begins) – COUNT YOUR STEPS

Your Available Step Counter Options:

  • Chose a preferred app (some ideas in table below); Or
  • Download the new Smarter Travel Step Counter app (iOS or Android), which will auto-sync your steps! OR
  • Use your own pedometer, active tracker or step counter

Remember to log your steps on the Active Travel Logger website

Android
Galaxy S Health (built in on more recent Galaxy phones); Map my Walk (free) Argus (Free) Runner-up (Free) Pedometer & Weight Loss Coach
Apple iPhone
Health App (standard on more recent iPhones); Map My Walk (free) Argus (free) Pedometer ++ (Free) Runner up (Free) Stepz (free)

If you’re using any step counter, other than  the Smarter Travel Step Counter app, you or your Team Captain will need to log details manually on the Active Travel Logger website.

You can log on a daily or weekly basis, and can backlog for up to 10 days (except for the final leaderboard, but we’ll be in touch to flag this with you).

**  Remember to only log what’s on your step counter! So aerobics, running and gardening are fine – but NOT cycling, swimming or other activities where you do not wear a step counter – these are not included.

What do I do if I forget to bring my Step Counter on one of the days of the Challenge?

You can estimate your steps based on another similar day in terms of activity.
