    I keep getting measurements in the health app about steps and walking distance? Can the 5S do that with just the M7 motion processor? And if yes, what other stuff can it do?

    Yes. Those are the only things that the 5s can track without extra hardware, afaik..

    The 5s can keep track of anything with the M7 and some 3rd Party Apps except stairs climbing, wich is a 6 & 6 Plus exclusive.
