    I have a question about the Health app. So on the graphs, there are numbers on the top right and bottom right corners. I've attached a screenshot with arrows. Where are those numbers coming from and what do they mean? I don't get why the bottom numbers are negative. This might be a silly question but I'm stumped. Thanks!

    I'd assume that they are the scale of your chart, the negative number just indicates that the bottom of the chart is that negative value. The plot of your data doesn't necessarily have a negative value. I think it is from some poorly designed auto scaling which apple should just use 0 as the least value on y axis or at least indicate where 0 is.

    I figured as much it was a scale of the graph. Hopefully this issue is fixed as I certainly don't have a day where my steps were -1915 or even as high as 10870. And yes, I do understand this is a new app on a beta operating system!

    None of those are not the value of your data points, it's just the min/max value of the y axis. This is not much of an issue but a sloppy design. Actually you cannot see what's your steps and distances, but they were within the range of -1915 and 10870, I figure some of the lowest points may be near where 0 is.

    Hope this make sense to you.
