Tough Mudder: Step counting wearables

Challenge 1: Stairway to Hell

Before reading on, you probably want to take a look at our introduction to Tough Mudder to find out why we're torturing two men with arduous physical tasks.

All caught up now? Good. Tough Mudder is closing in fast, and the boys are well into their training. Now that they’re getting fitter, it’s time to see if their Sony SmartWatch 3 can give them an edge.

In the first wearable challenge, we asked the boys to tackle a set of steps 10 times to see whether the Sony SmartWatch 3 or Sony SmartBand Talk is better at counting steps. Watch the video below to see how the wearables, and the boys, got on.

It looks like Ross and Tom handled the steps pretty easily, but don't worry, the next challenge will test their fitness a bit more. Both the wearables did a decent job too, tracking steps accurately. But it was the Sony SmartBand Talk that won this challenge, getting closest to the actual number of steps taken.

We'll be back soon with a tougher, wetter challenge for the boys ahead of Tough Mudder.
