Is the step/distance counter reliable on your Apple Watch ?

    The activity counter on my watch is way off. For now, I only use it for walking. But today, it reported 9699 steps and 8,28km while I mostly stayed at home and maybe walked 1km. I don't understand how the watch can be off by so much, especially considering I always have my phone in my backpack, so the watch has access to GPS...
    Anyway had similar troubles ? And how did you solve it ?

    Were there any rapid prolonged wrist movements at any point while you were at home?

    I am afraid my Fitbit Surge is way more accurate and is the "gold" standard for me. My AW was so inconsistent it became a joke. Apple has much work to do before I will but another AW.
