    I also ask Withings about the same topic before and I found out that the watch has a "post tracking" feature that reduces the number of false steps. I mean that the watch is only tracking the valid step count based on arm swinging and forward motion. I hope this helps.

    Thank you, @Raven! Is there a way to turn this off? I’m getting wildly different numbers from my Apple Watch and from my Withings.

    Which all sounds fine except the step count doesn’t work (ie undercounts or ignores) when I’m dancing either - plenty of arm movements there!! Do I actually have to travel a distance as measured by phone GPS for it to pick up? In which case that’s a problem as I don’t always carry my phone when I’m stepping - dancing, working, volunteering ... flawed it seems to me!!

    Same here. The sensors in the watch seem to discount me moving around the house or office, and only log the steps I take while walking outside. Quite odd.
