The Active 10 app is a free walking tracker from the NHS. It’s a simple way to take away the guesswork of how active you have been. The app uses sensors in your device to anonymously record every minute of walking you do, even when they’re spread out across the day.
To achieve an ‘active 10’ you just need to clock up 10 minutes of brisk walking throughout the day, you don’t have to walk for 10 consecutive minutes!
