Samsung launches Galaxy Explorathon, offers winners Galaxy Wearable prizes
Samsung on Thursday launched its first step challenge for Samsung Members in the country in the form of the Galaxy India Explorathon, a fitness challenge that starts tomorrow and ends after a month, with prizes for winners after the event is concluded.
Samsung has focused on five ‘milestone’ cities for this event - Delhi, Jaisalmer, Kochi, Lucknow, and Srinagar. Users who want to participate in the event will have to follow a digital map that covers these cities, the company says, while adding that users will need to record over 1.75 lakh steps in order to complete the challenge.
Users who want to participate in the step challenge on the Samsung Health app will have to register on Samsung Members app. The company has stated that the top five participants who record the highest step count could win Galaxy Wearable devices such as the Galaxy Buds and the Galaxy Watch series devices.
We had previously reported in January that the South Korean company had updated the Samsung Health app to bring major improvements to the Challenge feature, allowing users to compete with a group of nine other friends. These changes were added in the form of the ‘Group Challenge’ feature in the ‘Together’ section of the app, which allows users to track their friends and keep an eye on their goal and targets reached.
Two months ago, we also reported that users on older Samsung Galaxy devices (running Android versions Nougat and older) would have to upgrade their phone’s software to Android 8 (or Oreo) and above if they want to continue using the app on their devices, or upgrade your outdated device if no software update is available.
