Step by Step =)
For more accurate step counting, please ensure your profile is correct (gate measurement and other factors as well), that you are wearing your watch past your wrist bone (toward your finger tips) & that you allow 2-3 days to let your watch get acclimated to your movements.
The pedometer found in most watches will not track every step instantly, but will record the step and will show it after a few moments. This may explain why the watch looks like its not recording steps, but it actually is, which you will see on the watch.
While most smartwatches and fitness trackers may offer similar features, they are all different in terms of accuracy.
There will always be 10-20% difference in terms of what an average industry standard of steps are. That means, that the steps you are getting now, 10-20% will be inaccurate because it doesn’t account for certain outside movements. There are many factors that go into how accurate a pedometer is. Did you walk all day? Did you move your hands a lot while you talk? Did you move your hands in rotating circles?
Our smartwatches may not give you the same result you are getting from other brands, but what we can assure is that the accuracy of our pedometer is align with the industry standards.
In closing, we know monitoring your steps will help you reach your broader fitness goals, it’s also important to remember that the literal number is less significant than how you feel at the end of the day, whether you walked 5,000, 10,000, or 15,000 steps.
