    A check on a map app (Anquet) suggests we walked around 8 miles.

    Yeah, I used to use a Fitbit and can confirm that the MoveECG records far fewer steps.  On the other hand, the Fitbit would record ANY movement as steps, whether you were walking or polishing a car!  Useful only if your aim it to gather an impressive step count.  If you really wanted to cheat, you could put a Fitbit into the tumble dryer.

    However, the MoveECG only counts steps if you have actually been walking, and only if that is for a few minutes or so before it starts to say "oh, we're going on a walk".  You can be certain that you did at least 9762 steps within a certain bout of actual exercise which is useful if your aim is to actually get exercise which is beneficial to your health.

    My target is set to 8000 steps, and I only rarely reach that with the Withings, while the Fitbit would score it without me actually going anywhere, if I was being moderately active doing stuff around the house.

    Issue now, of course, is what does one use as a daily target?

    Day 2 - a more normal day - Garmin 11,503 Move ECG 7,407.

    Looking at the graph, the Move ECG only accounts for periods when one is walking, as opposed to moving around, say, from room to room - which can add up.

    I know.  My wife still uses a Fitbit and nearly always reaches her target.  I hardly ever reach mine - both 8000 steps and we do the same things mostly.  :-(

    Withings Bot has just offered me a guide to the Move ECG - it's a pdf - but it's blank!

    The level of support is the worst I've encountered in a looooong time.

    So, the foot has to have 'meaningful' contact with the ground in order to register. It'll ignore slow walking and probably walking on soft ground/mud - which is our daily route with the dogs.

    Perhaps we need to stamp around :D
