I'm a bit confuses on the goal, it says 0/5km and 6 days to achieve. But then on the bottom it says to qualify you must do 3km.within 30mins. So is the goal still 5km in your one run or 5 km over that week but your one run must be 3km within 30mins, or must you do the 5km in the one run but making sure 3km is achieved with 30mins?
I have no idea. For a run to qualify it has to be at least 3km under 30 min. The goal they've set seems to be cumulative, not per event.

How many points per run 300? Seems Samsung health is not supported :(
I've dusted my tomtom and going to use that as it's linked to Strava will try it out tomorrow,

Seems the extra km above the 3km is for donations towards Unicef

Yes, pretty annoying. I've linked Strava to my account and push the info from S Health via Strava to the running app. Normal Discovery points apply, I've not seen anything special relating to this event.

So i'm assuming this has been covered somewhere, but cannot for the life of me find it.
How does the healthy gear benefit work for purchasing high end fitness watches?
For example, if i'm on Gold (or Diamond) and I buy a R12k Garmin, how much would i get back? and what should I do to maximise the money i get back?

You get a percentage of R4000 spend on that. Assuming you are getting 25%, then you will get R1000 back, and then R2000 back over 24 months if you meet ALL active goals for the 24 months.

Thanks for the information.

So the R2000 back is not based in your vitality level but purely based on the 50% of the maximum of R4000?

Thought am the only one. Am on Polar and it is also not syncing.
I'm on Garmin and my last three HR workouts haven;t shown on Active Rewards. I thought it was because I was in Aus, with the time difference and all that..... but maybe not.

Do you still get actual cash backs from healthy living. Got mine yesterday. Wonder when we will get miles instead.

I'm not getting my points for activities at the moment, like parkrun, gym visits, device workouts. Anyone else? Had to speak to the whatsapp line to allocate my points for last week

Before: 1 point ~ R1; min R25, max R100.

and after: 10 miles = R1; min R5, max R30 (+ 3 x R10 in instant rewards)

I'm not sure why they still even have a "game board" when 90% of the board is worth between R5 and R9, I mean who actually cares what you pick; you're still only getting pennies anyways. It's almost not worth my time.

Completely agree. I've lost all interest in the Discovery rewards system. Haven't logged onto the app in weeks, don't bother striving for my weekly 900 points at all. I finished getting all my money back from last year's running shoes, I'm not buying another pair through Discovery. I've pretty much written them off as a rewards system, except for flight discounts which I'll probably use this year.
