Get Active India challenge on the Apple Watch saw Bengaluru beat all those Delhi gym boys
The Get Active India challenge that kicked off on February 15 has finally come to an end after a month. Organised by Apple’s distributors and authorised resellers in the country, participants were encouraged to close their activity rings each day to score points for their state - so you were not just competing with other people individually, but also as a city.
To win points, you would have to close all the three Activity rings - Stand, Move and Exercise - on your Apple Watch, daily. Closing the Move ring got you 12 points every time you closed it and you could earn a maximum of 36 Move points per day. The same applied for the Exercise ring. For the Stand ring, you could earn one point for every Stand hour and a maximum of 14 Stand points every day.
You could also earn 12 bonus points each day by closing all the three Activity rings.
Also, there were individual badges to be earned - If you earned 40 points in a day, you would get a Bronze badge. Earning 60 points and 80 points daily won you a Silver and Gold badge respectively.
The Get Active India challenge saw more than 16,000 Apple Watch owners across the country come on board and more than 118 million calories were burned over the month including almost 8.2 million exercise minutes.
So, who won?
Well, first place rank went to “Rest of India” which was basically a combined effort of all cities that did not participate individually. Bengaluru came in second beating out all the gym-enthusiasts of Delhi NCR (hear! hear!).
Here’s how the rankings stood:
1. Rest of India
3. Delhi NCR
