ok well it's not even close. It's been about 3000 steps off a day since I recieved the watch. I'm comparing it to my Fitbit flex ( which I have used for 2 yrs and the step count updates in real time, so I can tell that it is counting my steps correctly). I've been wearing both since I got the watch. What can I do to increase the accuracy ? The weather is terrible here to do the calibration outside. I tried calibrating it on my treadmill in my basement ( I choose outdoor walk) but I'm not sure how much that helped. I walked down my hallway and it said I took 50 steps. Definitely not right. It's more like 15 steps. Also the watch doesn't reflect counts in real time, obviously. So how often does it update the step count ? Ever few minutes ? Even when I open the activity app, it takes several minutes to refresh, it seems. This watch is fun. I just wish it could come close to calculating my step count correctly.
