3. Leader-board (To see your Rank/standings).

2. After opening BAMC app, agree to the Disclaimer and Honor Code. Further, please ensure that you add your Name and Email ID carefully (same as the ones you used for registration).
3. BAMC app will allow you to enter BAMC homepage only on 6th Nov (i.e. when the BAMC challenge starts). Once Installed, please don't uninstall the app till the competition end date.
4. Ensure that you are using Google fit for tracking your calorie count. Please add/select your Google Fit account information when prompted by BAMC app (On or after 6th Nov).

The data will be analyzed with the following objectives:

2. Update the global leaderboard
3. Update leaderboards with the following filters-Location, Sport/Activity, Day and Week

Ok, so the best part (oh! yeah, we are not done yet!!), the prizes at stake. How do Fitbit Flexes, Flagship Nike trainers, and BITSAA T-shirts sound for a prize? That, of course, goes along with all the weight that you lose. Thrilled much?

Honor Code:
Participants of BAMC undertake that they will not resort to any unfair means during BAMC to report an increased calorie count.
