I ran a 5k race yesterday and the health app says I ran/walked just under 0.15km during the entire day yesterday. Given the amount of walking I did as well that should be 7+ at least.

I don't expect it to be spot on but that's pretty damn poor. Is it the same for everyone else?

it won't ever be accurate for me just because so often when i am at my desk and walk to get coffee or at home i don't have my phone in my pocket. the only way i would be able to get accurate health data is from some type of wearable device like a band or watch. looking forward to getting a good product that can export the data into iOS8 though.

i really liked nike's fuel bad but that is being discontinued.

It's odd because it seemed fine before I updated to 8.0.1 (on 8.0.2 now but haven't tried it yet today).

Edit: it says I've walked 0.23km today when all I've done is walk downstairs, so it's going the other way now...overestimating
