I use Pedometer app...steps on that app and steps on the Health app are different. (Pedometer is higher) Anyone have this happen?

I have the same but reverse (Pedometer is much lower) but I see now that the app does not have the setting enabled to use the Apple Watch. Even you enable it, it says it will merge the data from the Apple Watch and the iPhone so that could explain the difference.

except you can’t choose your own goal steps. It’s automatically 10,000
Yes, force touch on the Apple Watch app and Change Daily goal.

Regarding pedometer, I seem to recall that the difference has something to do with steps both counted on phone and watch.

With the app open, force touch to bring up option to change step goal.

Doesn’t do anything.

I got the Health App to match Pedometer App now. But the Activity App on Watch is still lower.
