Or save the money and just work a 5 mile walk into your daily exercise routine.

Well, one of the advantages of these daily movement trackers....or just a basic pedometer which is what I usually recommend..... and programmes such as the 10,000 steps is that they also record (or more accurate don't record) lack of movement.

One of the reasons that folk like Gary Taubes, for instance, insist that "exercise doesn't work" is that there's the assumption that an exercise programme....or a walking programme.....is automatically going to create a calorie deficit. Well, it will if it's vigorous enough....but not so vigorous that you cut down on the unconscious movements that take place during the day (NEAT.....non-exercise activity thermogenesis).

What you don't measure, you can't track or control.
