Why doesn’t the Pulse reward different intensities of activity?

During the Challenge, we know that members will undertake lots of different activities during their day (such as football training, gardening or aerobics). Wherever it is safe to wear your Pulse, all of the movements accumulated during these activities will count.

We hope that the Challenge will have a sustainable, positive influence on everyday activity levels, which is why we've chosen to measure step counts. We know that this doesn’t take into account the different levels of intensity and effort required for every activity, but we do compensate for swimming (where you cannot wear your Pulse) and cycling (where your Pulse will not accurately record your movements), so that some reward can be given for movements accumulated during these activities.
