Tracking your activity has become the "killer app" of wearable tech.

More exercise is better than less, but beyond that, there’s nothing special about taking 10,000 steps each day.
That goal may have started with a popular Japanese pedometer of the 1960s named manpo-kei, the “10,000-step meter.” It was just a catchy name, but it stuck because it’s a good goal for at least some of us. 10,000 steps is roughly five miles — challenging but not impossible to fit into a busy day.
