    Is there nowhere to view your steps on the actual watch?

    I know you can via the activity and health apps on the iPhone but would be more handy doing it on the watch.

    Go into the watch Activity app. Swipe to get the main, left-most 3-ring view. Swipe up for daily totals in numbers.

    Fixed it for you. Crown is also usable for this.

    I really wish the step count was dynamic though, like the fitbit.

    There could have been a complication just for steps, with a visible number counter right on the watchface.

    I'm sure someone will make one for WOS 2 though.

    Me too. I'm frequently having to balance a step goal and a time constraint. As in: "I've only got a couple more minutes, should I go back to my office or do I still need a few more steps?"

    I'll look, and it's the same number it was five minutes ago, so I have to wait for it to update. Annoying.

    That would be awesome!!

    What do you mean by "dynamic?"

    Definition - Dynamic: (of a process or system) characterised by constant change, activity, or progress.
    "a dynamic economy"

    Basically I want the steps to count as I take them, at present there is a lag between activity, steps taken and the count as it shows on the watch and/or iPhone.

    Oh, I was not aware that the AW did not update steps in near-real-time. That would be kind of nice to have.

    Not sure! Maybe I would look once at it just to see how accurate it was and then never again. It updates every five steps or so anyway. I just wouldn't walk around looking at my watch to see how the number of steps change.
