Funny Message, Or Not So Funny
Yesterday I needed to visit my internet provider to take care of a few things. It was a nice day so I said why not take a walk and go on the longer route. While walking I got a notification from the app I'm still testing, that left me speechless.
So I got congratulated for getting to 3k steps and away from the sofa. At first it may look funny but if you think again, itbis not. I wish I would have all day to sit on the sofa but I never do and I sit on my office chair and I'm working. Obviously the app doesn't know that and doesn't care either. For them everyone who is not walking is considered to be sitting on the sofa.
Obviously this is an app with a programmed message and will give you this whenever you get to 3k. Probably has another message for 5k threshold and 10k too. This week most likely I'm going to find out.
One thing is for sure, trying to shame people to work out or walk more is the worst strategy in the world. You will never get anywhere with this strategy. I'm curious to see what the app is going to say at higher levels and if it has a few messages alternating or it's going to give me this crap every single time I get to 3k steps.
