Generally speaking, the best way to avoid double counting (earning Wellable Points twice for a single activity) is to make sure you are not tracking a single activity in multiple ways. For example, if you go for a walk or run, you should not track distance with the GPS feature of an app or device while also tracking steps with an app or device. In this scenario, you would be earning Wellable Points twice (Wellable Points for distance and Wellable Points for steps). The same scenario applies when going to the gym. If you go to the gym with the sole purpose of walking or running on a treadmill, you should not track the steps taken while on the treadmill with an app or device as well as log a gym check-in. This would also be considered double counting.
If your Wellable program allows for manual entry and you are entering steps directly in your User Account Dashboard via the Physical Activity feature to supplement what an app or device is syncing, you will need to enter the total number of steps for the day, not just the supplemental step count. For example, if your app or device synced 7,000 steps and you walked another 2,000 steps while the app or device was not with you, you would need to manually log a single entry of 9,000 steps to receive Wellable Points for your day’s total steps. By manually entering 2,000 steps, you would only receive Wellable Points for the 7,000-step app or device entry since this is the highest of the two step entries for the day.
