    Warning - Withings Watch has much lower step count than other manufacturers.  If you engage in a step Challenge using a Withings Steel HR Watch, you will lose.  Lookup step count inaccurate forum, and you will see several people complaining on the low step count.

    I find the step count on the Steel HR to be not far off from what Apple Health logs.  Unfortunately, Fitbit was one of the first major trackers out there and people got the idea that their step count was the standard (and accurate).  Fitbit grossly over counts steps.  I mean by the thousands.  I discovered this when I got a Garmin watch a while ago and was shocked by how much lower my daily step count was, until I realized that Garmin was in reality way more accurate.  Fitbit will give you steps for moving your arm, brushing your teeth, standing up, sitting down etc.  I actually find Withings to be maybe 500 to a 1000 steps lower on a typical day than Apple Health, but Fitbit will be nearly 3000-5000 OVER my Apple Health count on any given day.  So I am satisfied with Withings.

    My group can't see each other on the step challenge. They can only see the administrator.
