I recently switched from a Fitbit Charge 3 to a Steel HR.
I noticed that the number of steps recorded per day dropped my 40% after switching to the Steel HR.
For verification, I wore both watches for a few days, and the Steel HR does indeed record fewer steps than my Fitbit Charge 3.
Could this be due to a faulty sensor in my Steel HR, or does the Withings software record activity differently than other activity trackers do?
After searching through this forum I learned that the algorithm does not record runs until you have been running for two minutes.
Could it be that the Steel HR does not record activity with the same high sensitivity and accuracy as other activity trackers do?
My goal for this watch is not to track runs, but the number of steps I take — big and small — per day.
I like the aesthetics of the watch, but I need accurate activity tracking.
Suggestions and advice welcome 🙌
