Default [Q] Question on LG Health

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.

It uses the accelerometer to know how many steps you are doing, its not using your location.

Actually, it appears there are several sensors working together to capture this data, though I'm sure the accelerometer plays it's part.

I've experienced the same thing though, so I'm guessing the sensors could use a firmware tweak - perhaps in a future update they will refine them more?

Thanks, I did mean accelerometer very loosely just to distinguish it from location based services, but its always nice to see the full list of sensors.

Thank, but how do I stop it when I don't want it running? When I'm driving its registering as steps.

I haven't used it yet. Does it have much drain on battery?

When I had it running I didn't notice an issue. However I did shutoff GPS.
