Failed to count steps accurately?

The fitness tracker has a finely tuned algorithm for step counting. The algorithm is designed to look for intensity and motion patterns that are most indicative of people walking. When doing some arm movements like washing hands, the tracker on your wrist may pick up some extra steps if it thinks you’re walking. For the vast majority of customers, the amount of stray steps accumulated is negligible when compared to the entire day in your overall stats. To help improve accuracy and filters out some movements as mentioned above, if you walk less than 20 steps within a certain amount of time, these steps will not be stored. Before initial use, you need to install the app and run through the set up process to pair it to your smartphone. Make sure you have entered your personal information correctly such as your age, height and weight. The fitness tracker has a finely tuned algorithm for calories tracking, the information input goes towards the tracking algorithm it uses to calculate activity stats.

The tracker counts your daily steps for the whole day and records at the page with “steps” and resets after 00:00 each day. You can track the number of steps or distance at specific time period using motion mode, scroll to the motion mode page (page showing a running man) on your tracker, long press the control button, select your activity like “Outdoor run”, and then long press again to start to track time, heart rate, calories, steps, distance, and pace on your tracker. After you finish running, you can get the post-workout summaries of your activity on H Band App after sync.
