I set this up yesterday before I left for work and had maybe 10-20 steps from just wondering around getting ready for work. When I got to work I noticed that 10-20 jumped up to around 1,300 steps. Thinking it was from driving to work I reset it and walked from building to building and around the office. For what walking I did I had maybe 500 before it was time to leave work. I got home and I had about 1,800 steps. I reset it and let the phone sit till I left last night. When I got home I noticed it had a lot more steps than it should. Seems like its just tracking movement and counting x number of feet and y number of steps. I went in today to clear everything from the app so it's like I have never used it, I'd like a fresh start for when I do use it again.
Now to the question, is their a way to stop it from tracking me? Unless I have overlooked it I'm not seeing anything. I tried to shutoff location based services however it still keeps track of the number of steps. I just want to shut it off for when I'm in a car with out having to shut my phone off or put it in airplane mode.
