Thread: Coachella 2015 - How many steps?

  1. #1

    Default Coachella 2015 - How many steps?

    Thought it would be interesting if all you Fitbit owners out there tracked your steps throughout the weekend. I predict Friday>Saturday>Thursday>Sunday in terms of amount of steps.

    Obviously there is a lot of error when dancing and whatnot, but how many miles do you think you'll travel in a day? I seen it discussed in various threads, but it will be fun to look at all of the graphs once the weekend is over. I don't think 20k steps a day is that unlikely.

    Also, don't forget to charge it today so the battery lasts through the weekend!

    I don't have a fitbit, but I use the Moves app on my iPhone. Last year I did 21,918 Friday, 20,892 Saturday, and 23,059 Sunday Weekend One. So yeah about 10 miles a day, give or take some error for dancing and running (which read sometimes as either running or cycling on my app), but yeah thats a lot of movement.

    Curios to see whether I beat it this year or not.

    My Fitbit #s from 2014: Friday = 17,089, Saturday = 19,294, and Sunday = 23,543. Flew home on Monday (only 6,347).

    I don't have a fitbit but I have an LG G watch and my note 4. I have a guest pass so I might end up using the cart once or twice, but I really want to get my stats up. I hike and walk a lot and I'm always watching my stepcount.

    I would think way over 20,000 steps. On a 4 hour hike I can do 20K steps, at Coachella I feel like I'm constantly walking, dancing, etc for 12+ hours.

    I'll have my Fit Bit on too this year, but I doubt I'll hit 10,000 any day, because of my accommodations.
    Even though I look like one, I'm not a cop.

    I don't think I've done over 15,000 in the almost year since I've had my phone (Samsung Galaxy s5) and I've done some full days of disc golfing

    I had my fitbit on me at CRSSD fest and on Sunday I hit 40,000 steps. Granted it included the 12am-4am period where we were at an afterparty, but still! Definitely a personal best. Curious to see what I'll hit out on the polo fields next weekend.

    well, for some reason my fitbit wasn't syncing until saturday and sunday. Sunday's graph is below. It's funny because sunday day was my slowest for sure. But late night saturday I went nuts at the silent disco for a couple hours. Obviously I didn't travel 21 miles, but i feel pretty confident that I burned that many calories.

    2015: Friday (18,708), Saturday (20,358), and Sunday (17,184). We took it easy on Sunday, or else I would have hit 20k again.

    Mine was fucking crazy.

    I'll post a picture of it later. But I averaged over 30,000 for the weekend. Over 13 miles of walking/running a day. Obviously this is very skewed by dancing.

    Those old lungs are long gone, now it's 5-10 miles a day of walking thanks to these shiny new ones.

    Is this because you passed out and almost missed the shuttle?

    Well I had some discrepancy in the readings between my Moves app and the Iphone health app.

    Moves had me at:
    15,425/ 7.3 miles Friday
    17,037/ 7.6 miles Saturday
    15,799/ 7.5 miles Sunday

    Which is far les than last year w1 and makes sense as I did far less split sets/stage swapping each day

    My iphone health app read higher though,
    showing me between 22,000 - 25,208 steps each day and 11-13.37 miles each day with Sunday being the highest
    I didnt have this phone last year so I dont have a comparison for accuracy against moves.

    Still not too shabby.
