One day I was typing in my personal measurements into my health tracker. I had to go do the weight and height and then I came back and entered them. And I started running, burning 800+ kcal‘s every time. First thought, whatever – it’s probably right. But apparently it was awesome for running a few clicks in 20 minutes (said my wife). After some time I returned to the settings for a different reason and found:
|Height||70 cm / 2.3 feet|
|Weight||180 kg / 374.8 lbs|
No wonder I had burned some carb’s if I’d been running along with those numbers…. Bug / No bug ?
- Apparently 70 cm is a valid height – What would be an invalid interval? – What would be invalid input?
- Apparently 180 is a valid weight – What would be an invalid interval? – What would be invalid input?
- How many angry users will you get for hinting that their body details are invalid?
- Does it matter? – It didn’t matter to me (or I would have spotted it sooner, I guess)
