The challenge starts Feb. 5. Here’s how to log your steps:

Enrollment closed Feb. 4. 

Did you know that you don’t need a smartwatch or fitness band to track your steps?

You can always manually log your daily step count in the inHealth wellbeing portal, but if you have the wellbeing app for iOS or Android and use Apple Health or Google Fit, you can connect your iPhone, Android, fitness tracker, or smartwatch, and make sure every step counts using the inHealth Wellbeing app

Your smartphone can automatically track how many steps you take and the distance you walk. It’s simpler than you might think. Just remember to carry your phone with you throughout the day for accurate readings.

No matter what device you’re using, here’s how to connect it to the Apple Health and Google Fit apps to automatically track your steps:
