Hi guys, I’ve been playing Runescape for several years now and have to admit that there are times that I can get quite obsessed about RuneScape and forget the world outside. I also know I am not the only one with this problem and because of it, sometimes our health can be overlooked due to so much gaming. I came up with a solution that wouldn’t need too much developing and could actually be quite fun. My idea is to combine fitness with runescape in a fitness awareness month or even a permanent addition. The way it would work is that you could actually take steps taken from a pedometer such as a Fitbit/smart watch or phone and convert x number of steps to bonus Xp in agility for your in game player. Now I know at first developers and programmers are going to be hit a wall when they think of taking the data from a Fitbit or pedometer to in game characters and my solution might also fix that problem as well. What I propose is to add a simple program to the runescape mobile app that allows the app to access the health/steps app already on someone’s phone. I know I would personally be more motivated to go on walks and take short breaks from the screen if I know I’m not wasting any xp! Please let me know on your thoughts and thank you for your time.

And how would Jagex know that the movement the pedometer measures are actual steps? It's very easy to make a contraption that mimicks steps and use that to earn bonus xp 24/7 while you're just lying in bed constantly.
Also, some people are not able to actually walk around (disablities and such), so you're giving them a disadvantage? Seems like a bad idea...

Just use the Silverhawk boots.

This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.
