Alert Health and Fitness Track, 2017

Long overdue, here is a new health and fitness sticky for the year. :flex:

I just got a pedometer and put it through its paces today. The step count seems accurate -- just over 9,000 for a 3.3 mile walk -- but its mile count is way off the one Google Maps gave me when I plotted the route. Since I got a nice basic model that has no Bluetooth bullshit or web connectivity of any kind, I'm wondering if it calculates miles based solely on the length of stride it asks you to input. But that's a rough number, not a reliable way to measure distance. I saw the step count move with each step I took, so I'm comfortable that's correct. I think I'll stick to the Googz for the miles, though.
