A: No! You don’t need a smartwatch. You can use a step counter or an exercise tracker app of your choice on your phone. Some people use apps like Strava or the health app from the phone. If you don’t have a smartphone, you can convert the time spent doing activities like walking into distances.
Q: Do I need to use a specific app to track my distances?
A: You can use the app of your choice to track your distances. You can then input manually the distances or steps into My Virtual Mission.

However, we recommend that you input your distances manually onto the My Virtual Mission platform for more accurate tracking. For questions and support regarding connecting apps, please contact directly My Virtual Mission. The Rotary Club of Toronto Skyline does not make any guarantees regarding the connection of any apps with My Virtual Mission.
