The HPB national step challenge (healthy 365 app) does work overseas, when I was in Chiang Rai – Thailand it reported a distance of 2,092 kilometers to the nearest eatery. For those of you who have wondered whether it will work. I can report, YES, the GPS does work and reports the distance from the nearest healthy eatery. All this as I kept to my 10,000 daily dose of steps being the tourist in Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai. I guess this means no healthy eating for me in Thailand. Haha.
Here is the actual screen shot on the Healthy 365 in Chiang Rai
Below is a screenshot of the distance to Healthy Food in Singapore which is 2000 km away when in Thailand in the National Step Challenge app
