    I am wondering if anyone knows of a way to disable the Health app from tracking your activity (or to disable the motion chip altogether).

    It seems I can prevent other apps from accessing it, but it's always on and capturing data.

    Thanks!

    No you can't. This is so apple can track you even when you put your iPhone in airplane mode. They do this by knowing the distance traveled then correlating this with frequent location data to triangulate and pinpoint your movements. This was done at the bequest of the NSA and GCHQ.
