Ratings and Reviews
The idea of the app is great - however, I don’t like the idea that the makers can track every step you make, every single day. Essentially that’s how the app works, but instead of giving you actual genuine rewards for exercising, it tricks you into thinking you’re working towards something when in actual fact, there’s no monetary value to this app whatsoever. You’re not being paid, you’re not receiving rewards as such. You save your coin and you can use them to purchase subscriptions or items but they are really limited. None of the rewards advertised have been relevant to me. You can save your coins for an iPhone, which is the equivalent of 20k sweatcoins, however, that’s quite an impossible amount to raise. Especially considering the max coins you can earn in 1 day is 5 (unless you use your coins to pay monthly to be able to increase that to 10 coins). You can transfer coins to other people but they’re not applicable when it comes to using them to purchase items which is a bit of a dud.
Great idea for an app. I have read that the makers eventually want to make sweatcoin a cryptocurrency and increase the number or rewards you can claim. But that seems like a distant dream rather than actual reality at this point. Still, I shall keep the app and save my coins and who know what will have changed in 6 months to a year!

Thanks for the feedback Cariad1313. We’d love to hear how things are going 3 months on from your review. We’ve put a lot of effort in over this time getting cool, high-quality brands on the app, wholly purchasable in Sweatcoins. You’ll have hopefully seen that you can now buy lots of products at the lower end, so they are more attainable. We’ve also launched physical retail offers in London, with hundreds of businesses now accepting Sweatcoins. Also just to clarify, we only track your steps to verify your reported movement. The information we collect from you is used to deliver our service to you and it is never sold to third parties. Anyway, hopefully, you’ve seen some improvement since your last review, but either way, we’d love your feedback. Your Sweatcoin Team
The humongous toll this app takes on your phone’s battery aside, this is a tedious app. The idea is nice but unfortunately walking around for really useless products. To use this app is to trick yourself into thinking you need to work towards earning ‘rewards’ that are very unnecessary to anyone’s life. iPhone X’s and cash prices that you will never ‘earn’ via just walking. Transferred money doesn’t work and paying for accounts that allow you a higher daily limit of possible sweatcoin earnings mean that ultimately you are paying for products with money as well as your time.
I have also wondered if it’s really a good thing to actively allow a company to track every single movement you make. This is like a mine for data on people’s habits. Like ‘checking in’ with each step you take. It’s hard to say it’s not necessary though, I guess that’s needed to make the app work as intended. Which brings one to the realisation that the whole concept of this app necessitates playing an active role in being a consumer. It’s like tricking oneself into being a wanting consumer and I’m sure there are plenty of better ways to motivate oneself into walking for ones health, if that’s what you are really after.
Concept is cute but flawed essentially. I just don’t think this technology and approach plays out how you hope it does when downloading the app!

Thanks for the feedback Healbones, and sorry to hear you feel this way. The team has been working hard over the past months improving on a number of your concerns: 1. With some tech wizardry, our app is no longer in the top-5 battery drainers on most iPhones. Hopefully, you’ve seen some improvement here? 2. We’ve also put a lot of effort in over this time getting cool, high-quality brands on the app, wholly purchasable in Sweatcoins - at multiple price points (low and high end). A couple of other points we wanted to clarify. Our app is completely free, with upgrades to higher membership levels (which allow you to earn more Sweatcoins per day) paid for in Sweatcoins, not £. Also, we only track your steps to verify your reported movement. The information we collect from you is used to deliver our service to you and is never sold to third parties. If you’re still a Sweatcoiner, we’d love to hear your feedback since your last review. Your Sweatcoin Team
5* concept, 4* conversion, 3* offers
The concept is, in my opinion, iconic. Having created a currency to encourage people to watch themselves earn as they walk outside is a brilliantly simple idea, with a reward at the end - most of which you do have to contribute some cash flow towards.
So far, I’ve had a free Razor worth £22, - free face wash, £5 off a grooming kit (which I wanted anyway!), 2 months of NOW TV cinema pass, £15 off a £50 Footlocker voucher (I shop there) and all sorts of other incentives.
Granted, the offers aren’t all ‘free’, or spectacular. Some are so ridiculously unachievable unless you invite friends and family members to the app to build your Sweatcoin allowance where you’re rewarded with bonus coins... but the intent is there. Me? I’m off my a*** walking to work and back and quite enjoying not burning money on fuel and parking and spending that on fairly good deals.
Could it be better? The gifts, absolutely. But I think it’s a promising idea with lots of growth potential. I’m a few gifts and 600 coins in, so I’m sticking with it ;)
