Dirk Schrama is not your ordinary runner and Withings Pulse owner. He is an amateur ultra runner who works in the obstacle course business. Dirk came to our attention through a tweet he posted. He attached his Daily Activity graph, which was displaying an impressive +100K step count! He even used the #WantMoreBadges hashtag to ask us for new virtual trophies to unlock – he had already gone through all of the existing Daily Steps badges (the biggest one being 60K/day). That’s when we offered him to become an inspiration for the upcoming “100K steps a day” badge, and to collaborate with us through regular guest blog posts. Guess what? Dirk agreed! Here is his first contribution to our blog/Community Hub. Don’t hesitate to drop a question or remark in the comments!

So what’s this? This is a story of insights and discovering. And it goes as any motivating story should go: self-experiment, tracking, measuring one’s responses to the challenges one chooses for their own. Seen that way, I can start this story by what very easily could be its own conclusion: that the Withings ecosystem for health tracking and maintenance is a really interesting and good place where to start, stay and progress. Now, to the details:

[To read part 1 first, click here] Of course, you don’t have to go the electronic route to track what you eat to make yourself measurably better; a simple notepad works, too. The latter was good enough for Ben Franklin, who diligently logged his adherence to thirteen virtues on a quest for moral perfection. Sure, he might have used a Nexus 5. But if you’re old school, you don’t have to. And you will still succeed.

In January 2014, we asked the community if they were tracking several aspects of their health, and if they were ready to share their experience. Within minutes, many emails landed in our mailbox! Of course. If anyone knows that it makes sense to look at your health from a wide angle, it’s the Withingers! The Health Mate app, at the core of the Withings 360° experience, was carved around the “Weight, Heart, Sleep, Activity” tetralogy.
