    Your steps will be different from your watch if you're counting your steps manually. Every activity tracker has a different algorithm that is why you may noticed that your steps are not identical but it doesn't mean that it is inaccurate.

    I understand algorithms and I understand that there will be slight variations but really it recorded 18 steps versus 93. That’s just ridiculous. That is only 16% of the actual steps I took. And if that is what it is doing the majority of time, what’s the point in even having something that is so in accurate.
