## Check whether daily steps as measured by a pedometer are valid.

### Description

This function checks whether daily steps as measured by a pedometer are valid. The variables from this function are used to compute `step_average`

and
the step score (`step_score`

).

### Usage

```
validate_steps(steps = NA, wear_time = NA)
```

### Arguments

`steps` |
A numeric (integer) vector representing the steps taken on a given day (valid values are between 1000 and 30000). |

`wear_time` |
A numeric vector representing the duration of time (in decimal hours) that a pedometer was worn on a given day (valid values are >= 10.0 hours). |

### Details

Other `capl`

functions called by this function include: `validate_scale()`

and `validate_number()`

.

### Value

Returns the `steps`

argument (if valid) or NA (if not valid).

### Examples

```
validate_steps(
steps = c(5400, 11001, 999, 31000, 8796),
wear_time = c(10.1, 12.6, 10.2, 10.9, 9.5)
)
# [1] 5400 11001 NA NA NA
```
