Update 10/10/16: Season 2 of the National Steps Challenge is now here! I’ve done a write-up about it here.
Update 17/4/16: I’ve been using the Actxa tracker for three months now and have experienced a few syncing hiccups along the way. Scroll down or click here to find out how I resolved them.
In November last year, the Health Promotion Board launched the inaugural National Steps Challenge. As part of the challenge, early birds would receive a complimentary Actxa Stride step tracker (pictured above), whereas those who missed the early bird deal will pay only a nominal fee of $5 (or $20 for foreigners). Of course, this isn’t relevant any longer since registration is now closed. However, I only managed to receive my step tracker in late January, after missing my earlier appointment in mid December 2015.
