    is there any way of recording steps taken/distance etc in a period of time other than 12am-12am?

    I work nights a lot of the time so watch goes on my wrist at 3pm and comes off at 8:30am. That's kinda my day for 2 weeks of every month so it'd be handy to see the count during those times.

    Keep in mind that it's not just steps but just about everything is based on 12:00AM as a new day. You might could find a 3ed party app that would allow custom times but for Apple to integrate steps (and all fitness and health data) into Fitness and Health apps there MUST be a standardized interval and 12AM is universal.

    That's an interesting idea. Most of the third party step counters probably have a check for midnight to reset steps, it wouldn't be a terrible amount of work to offer an option for when it resets.
