Default [Q] Does S Health log walks when minimized?

Hey there.

Coming from a 5S I was heavily using the step counting feature.

Does Walking Mate within S Health work when minimized? Does it count my steps?

Didn't have to do anything. Just told it my exercise was walking and it started monitoring my steps. No special setting at all.

Yep, just did the same thing and it works.

I thought that was for planned walks.

Cheers Lagu!

Mine works without doing much. If only that small amount of walking took the pounds off!!
