5+ Apps Like Sweatcoin

My Sweatcoin review is quite possibly one of the most popular reviews I have done on this site to date.  People love the idea of getting paid to walk, and hey, can you blame them?  It’s easy money.

If you’re unfamiliar with the app, it simply pays you to walk.  Yes, you just need to have the app activated and you can earn “sweatcoins,” the company’s currency, for every step you take.  In my review, I found it to be okay, and I’m sure you will think the same too. You would have to walk quite a bit to start redeeming rewards, most of which I found to be of no value, at least to me. However, let’s not focus on the negatives here as you can at least earn something if you’re already walking.

Whether you love the Sweatcoin app and you’re looking for alternatives or maybe you want to get paid to walk, let’s take a gander at the many apps that work just like Sweatcoin.

Apps Like Sweatcoin for iPhone and Android


Achievement is another app I reviewed in the past, and out of all the apps like Sweatcoin, I would say Achievement is one of my favorites.  The app pays you to track your steps, log food, log meditation sessions and answer surveys.  You can then use the points to cash out, which includes a PayPal option, something which many of these apps don’t offer.  After you earn 10,000 points on your app, you can cash out for $10 in PayPal cash.  And, just like Sweatcoin, you can link it to many of the popular fitness trackers like MyFitnessPal, Apple Health, etc.

  • Rating: Achievement has a solid 4.5/5 Google Play Store rating with more than three million members.

LifeCoin is almost a direct clone of Sweatcoin, and it’s one I have reviewed in the past.  If you’re not happy with the Sweatcoin redemptions, which many people often are, I must warn you that LifeCoin’s rewards aren’t much better.  With LifeCoin, you take steps and get rewarded for every one you take.

  • Rating:  LifeCoin averages a 3.6/5 on the Google Play Store.

The Earthmiles, another Sweatcoin alternative, will reward you with “earthmiles,” in which you can splurge on exclusive offers.  Most of the offers focus on new exciting brands that want to support you in your quest to be healthy, such as vegan foods, healthy snacks, etc.  Like Sweatcoin, the offers aren’t much, but if you want to get rewarded to walk, it’s one to consider.  Don’t expect much out of it, however.

Winwalk is another free pedometer that counts your steps and rewards you with a variety of free eGift cards from popular brands, such as Amazon and Nike, to name a few.  Every 100 steps you take, you earn one coin, and you’re limited to 100 coins a day.  This is about 10,000 steps.  The biggest difference with this app, however, is that it has a lot more ads than most I have tried.  Once you earn enough coins, which is about 16,000 coins, you can cash out for a gift card or test your luck with the app’s built-in lottery platform.

  • Rating:  WinWalk averages a 4/5 on the Google Play Store.

StepBet is a pinch different than the many apps mentioned here as you will have to bet on yourself to technically win.  So, it does cost money.  In short, to make money, you will have to place a bet, walk the necessary steps for the time mentioned, and if you succeed, you get to split the pot with all of the other winners.  If you feel you’re disciplined enough to walk every day to win your bet, it’s one to check out as the prizes can be quite large.

Final Thoughts

As you can see there are a lot of apps like Sweatcoin.  The only problem is that most of these apps don’t pay diddly.  You’re going to have to walk for months before you even see a decent cash out.  Not only that but some of these apps don’t even have great rewards.  Instead, you can cash out for coupons.  No thanks.

While you can make money walking, don’t be surprised when you see how many steps you have to take to earn a few dollars.  With most of these apps, you’re only going to make money referring people.

As always, if I’m missing a Sweatcoin alternative, do let me know.  You’re also more than welcome to sound off on the ones I did mention on this list.
