Apple Watch count steps when sitting down - and too many when walking!

    Very satisfied with my Apple Watch Sport, but I have an issue with the step counting. Before, when I just tracked my steps with my iPhone, the results were quite accurate. Now, when using the Watch, it keeps counting steps when I sit down and when I walk my Watch counts at least two times more than actual steps taken, if not more!

    Anybody else with the same problem and maybe with a solution as well?

    And yes, it's already calibrated. Hopefully this will be fixed in a software update!!

    You will rack up some additional steps from just moving your arm while sitting down. But if you ARE getting double steps when walking you got a hardware problem as I do not see others reporting this. If you are sure take it in to Apple and have them take a look.
