Google drops '10,000 steps' goal amid claims some fitness trackers might not actually work

The Independent - Tech 

Google is trying to get rid of the "10,000 steps" target amid claims it could actually hold people back from getting more fit. Many fitness trackers use the goal as a way of motivating people to get moving: 10,000 steps is an achievable but significant target for people as they try and get fitter. But the new version of the company's health app drops that target and instead encourages people to fill rings in ways that allow them to better track their physical activity.
