National Steps Challenge™ is back for its fifth season, from 26 October 2019 to 30 April 2020! So, what exactly is the National Steps Challenge™ all about? Launched by Health Promotion Board (HPB), this challenge encourages Singaporeans to clock 10,000 steps a day, as well as to engage in 150 minutes of Moderate to Vigorous Physical Activities (MVPA) a week. Just by joining in the challenge, you will be able to earn attractive rewards as you keep fit on the go! To qualify, you need to be at least 17 years old (based on birth year) with a valid NRIC/FIN number upon registration of the challenge.

How do I get my own fitness tracker?

Silver Challenge participants (Singaporeans/Permanent Residents who are born in 1959 or earlier) will be able to receive an AXTRO Fit 2, which features a colour display, improved heart-rate sensor, a magnetic charging cradle, and many more!

You can collect up to three trackers for you and your family, as long as a softcopy or photocopy of their NRIC, and booking reference QR code is provided!

  2. Create a new profile, or restore your profile if you already have one.

National Steps Challenge™ Pokémon-Themed Collectible Kit

In this 5th season of National Steps Challenge™, Pokémon-themed collectible kits will be given specially and exclusively to “Loyal Supporters” and “Completers”. This is to thank participants for participating in the challenge throughout the years.

You may be wondering, who are considered “Loyal Supporters” and “Completers”? Loyal Supporters are participants who have taken part in all past 4 seasons of the challenge, and Completers are those who have conquered all 6 tiers of the Steps Category in previous seasons. Therefore, if you are one of them, hurry down to the upcoming Mega Roadshows or make an appointment on the app to grab your kits!

Earning Healthpoints in the Steps Category

Once you have paired up your tracking device with your Healthy 365 mobile application, you are all geared up! Earn Healthpoints for every step you take, and turn these points into vouchers!

The Healthpoints rates are as follows in the Steps Category:

New participants or returning participants who have not completed tier 1 will get a bonus 350 Healthpoints to get them started!

Tier 1 is complete once your total Healthpoints hit 750. That is when you can redeem your first $5 e-Voucher! From there, continue walking to level up to the subsequent tiers. Every time you move on to the next tier, you will be awarded with a $5 or $10 e-Voucher as shown below

If you clock 10,000 steps or more every day, you can complete the challenge in 100 days! Earn e-Vouchers with a grand total of $35 when you complete the challenge.

Earn Healthpoints through MVPA Rewards Category'

Since season 4, HPB has added a new feature – the Moderate to Vigorous Physical Activities (MVPA) Category – for us to stay active and on the go. This means that apart from steps, you can also spend time on higher intensity exercises and be rewarded!

By taking part in higher intensity activities, you increase your heart rate to at least 64% of your maximum heart rate, and this may contributes to your 150 minutes of MVPA every week!

 220 - Your Age = Max HR
(beats per min or bpm)

The Healthpoints rates are as follows in the MVPA Category:

New participants or returning participants who have not completed tier 1 will get a bonus 350 Healthpoints to get them started!

The MVPA category operates on its own tiered system, independently of the Steps Rewards. Here is the information you will need:

As there are 2 extra tiers of rewards in this season, the total redeemable e-Vouchers is now $50 instead of $30.

National Steps Challenge™ Corporate Challenge

This is a challenge where you sign up as a workplace to compete collectively. Registration is open and closes on 31 Oct 2019, and the challenge will run from 6 January 2020 to 19 April 2020. Top performing companies may earn up to $10,000 in cash!

Healthpoints vouchers & prizes

So you must be thinking after you have gathered all my Healthpoints, ‘What do I do with them?’ or ‘What are the rewards can I redeem using them?”. Well, there are a few ways you can use them - the first way would be to redeem them into e-Vouchers, which are versatile as they can be used almost anywhere and everywhere. Choose from a wide range of e-Vouchers that can be used in local supermarkets such as NTUC FairPrice, Giant, 7-Eleven stores, Golden Village theatres, shopping malls, bubble tea shop, and even Klook.

The second way would be to convert these Healthpoints into PAssion card points, where 1 Healthpoint = 1 TapForMore point or into EZ-Link/NETS FlashPay credit.

Apart from these, you can also stand a chance to win fascinating prizes in our Grand Draw worth more than $40,000! This can be done by obtaining chances every time you clock in 10,000 steps (1 chance) or 30 minutes of MVPA (2 chances) a day. The top prize is a pair of Singapore Airlines Business Class tickets to Seattle! Below are what’s in store for this season!

So don’t just stand there – grab your AXTRO Fit 2 today and join us for National Steps Challenge™ Season 5 now! For more information about the tracker, simply head down to our website.

I am writing in regard to my bad experience at GENIX Centre point on Wed 27 Nov at about 6-20pm.

This issue was in regard about my wife tracker unable to syn or pair with Healthy 365 app.

Whe my wife collected her AXTRO FIT 2 THE TRACKER unable to pair with the 365 app.
She decide to switch to 3rd party tracker FITBIT, the same problem unable to sync or pair with the 365 apps. I called HPB where the staff patiently listened to my proble and directed me to GENIC HPB appointed customer service Centre.

On the day of 27 Nov 2019 at about 6-20pm after I took to take my queue number and later was served , I told the front office staff about my problem with FITBIT she rudely
told me that they do not know about this problem. My question is that before I could told her my full query she was already very negative refusing to hear and lsiten to the problemand attend to it.

Later another colleague of her who was cleaning the floor overheard the commotion told me this FITBITS problem she has encountered and told me it is FITBITS problem and at this office they do handle such problem.

I told her to give me her name so that I can feeeback to HPB she refused.

I have called several times to HPB on my wife problems (unable to pair with tracker) and at all occassion the HPB staff was patient and helpful but in this instance at GENIX CENTREPOINT this was a very bad encounter and it does not reflect well of HPB although you appointed this manging agent as customer service centre.

How do I earn the MVPA points? Although I have completed all Step tiers from the previous season, my MVPA tier is only at tier 1 now. It take very long to progress.

I have completed the Step tiers from previous season. So meaning now I can only earn MVPA tiers and not Step tiers?

Thank you.
