Most of the pedometers aren't accurate anyway. Every one I've come across I can get it to increment without taking a single step.

I'm not gonna even try to defend the pedometer, in the s5 or the gear2 neo. I don't even think mine are in sync with each other, but it is nice to know I achieved some sort of goal.

Even if the count is way off, my weekday habbits are similar enough that it is nice to reach a goal.
