Everest Challenge Automatic Tracking Options

Tracking options for the Everest Challenge.

Fitbit: Only the Fitbit Charge 3, Versa, and Ionic track floors climbed. Log in to your Fitbit account and under the activities tab you can see how many floors of stairs you climbed.

iPhone: In the “Health” app under the activity tab, you can see how many floors of stairs you climbed per day and per week.  Clicking on a day in the week view shows the total for that day.  Sum up all floors for the week and multiply by 12.

     .    .    .  

Apple watch: Open the Activity app on your Apple Watch and you can view how many floors climbed. You can also open the Activity app on your iPhone and see how many floors climbed.

Garmin: Any of the following Garmin wrist watch models contain barometric altimeters that track flights climbed. Garmin counts one floor climbed as 10 ft (3 meters) in elevation gain.

Android: Unfortunately, there is not useful app that will count floors climbed on an android device.  

Google Fit: Doesn’t directly measure stairs/flights climbed. You will have to find another option or manually track.

If you don’t have any of these options, you can still count stairs and multiply by 7/12th or 0.583
