The seasons are changing, and so are a few things in Walkadoo! Here are three recent improvements to help you stay on top of your step goals:
Light it up. If you’re using a Pebble to send your steps to Walkadoo, you’ve probably noticed the circle of lights that comes on when you tap your device. Before last month, those lights indicated your progress toward 5,000 steps. The lights didn’t give you any information about your Walkadoo step goal, which could make it confusing to find out if you met your goal.
As of last month, the lights display how close you are to your tailored Walkadoo step goal. When you tap your Pebble, you’ll see two circles of lights: one complete circle and then a partial or complete circle, depending on whether you’ve met your goal. For example, if your goal that day is 6,352 steps, and you’ve taken 3,000 steps and offloaded your steps to Walkadoo, you’ll see a partial circle of lights come on when you tap your Pebble. Please note that if you haven’t come in contact with a sync point that day, the lights on your Pebble will not reflect that day’s step goal. Instead, the lights will continue to track your progress toward the last custom goal your Pebble received from Walkadoo. If your card that day is Unlimited, the lights will indicate a goal of 5,000 steps.
You’ve got our number. All your text messages from Walkadoo now come from a consistent phone number. Walkadoo SMS used to come from a bank of numbers, which may have filled your inbox with messages from multiple senders. Now that you only get messages from one number, add Walkadoo to your contact list! If you want to receive SMS notifications from Walkadoo, add your phone number on your Settings page.
Text for steps. Wondering how many steps you’ve walked so far today? Text the word STEPS (or sTePs; it’s not case sensitive) to find out your progress. You can reply to any Walkadoo text message, or send a message to the number you’ve newly saved as Walkadoo. You’ll get a message with your step count as of the last time you synced.
We'll continue to keep you posted on new product updates. In the meantime, keep walking!
