CityMoves With Nokia Comes To Manchester With The Connected Cities Challenge

Walked around the City, it can be really easy to rack up the recommended 10,000 steps per day. You see most people with some sort of wearable tech these days to track those steps, but did you know Nokia have their own AND they’re doing something scientific with it?

The Nokia Steel tracks activity and sleep in a super stylish way. It looks like a real watch rather than a technology gadget, yet it interacts with your phone in exactly the same way. Nokia have gone beyond the generic step counter too by introducing Body Cardio, the clever weight scales that also track fat mass, muscle mass, body water and bone mass. Like with the Nokia Steel this is all uploaded to your phone so you can track your body health alongside your activity in a simple way.

Not content with providing good looking and practical solutions, Nokia are also working with Connected Health Cities to help advance science’s to understand how low intensity exercise improves heart health. The challenge is running until the 21st December so there is still time to take part, the de-personalised data will be given to the University of Manchester’s Connected Cities Health Programme where data scientists will look into the changes seen in heart rate across the study period.

You can also get motivated by pitching yourself against others in a challenge to see who can cover the most steps. You can pick your team at the Nokia website to get started, get moving and help our local scientists research heart health. I’ll see you on the leaderboard.
