    Left watch at home and my health app is not keeping track of my steps.
    Any ideas?

    Without your watch I don't believe you can get your iPhone to count your steps.

    Unless you use an IOS app such as Argus. This is the app that I have used for a few years, and I find it very accurate.

    I hope your watch is hooked up to its charger! :confused:

    which iPhone do you have OP?

    iPhone 5S and up have a motion co-processor that counts steps in the background. 6/6+ also have a barometer to help estimate "flights of stairs climbed"

    The iPhone tracks steps with or without a watch, at least it did.
