Despite the importance of physical activity to health, many people do not meet the recommended guidelines for physical activity. In order to gain a greater understanding of people's activity levels and patterns in everyday life we designed a mobile activity monitoring application, which resides on mobile phones which utilizes the accelerometer and GPS (either as an externally attached component or as in internal component) data. We designed the system to be used by any member of the public and then redesigned the system given continuous feedback from three sets of local authority workers who were just about to commence a walking led scheme. We logged their activity over a week long period.
