Anyone using this app a lot and have any opinions on it? Wondering what everyone's opinions are as far as accuracy. I'm thinking it's not too accurate so was thinking about disabling it but not sure. Don't have a pedometer to compared it to.
Haven't been able to tell since it starts automatically instead of when you want to start it. But I think like most pedometers, it gives a close approximate. As far as a calorie counter, it's not accurate
I have been using it for a couple weeks, and it seems the tracker always running isn't too accurate (sometimes says im running because I walk fast) but I feel the measured run/walk works good. At least for walk. The gps tracking is great and the time/distance is nice too. Probably not the best app out there but it suits my needs and I feel it does a good enough job.
I tried walking around and counting my steps for a short time and it wasn't all that accurate. A better test might be if someone wants to used a good quality pedometer for an extended period and compare it to the LG.
Another problem is that many people put their phone down somewhere for part of the day and therefore the daily counts might miss a a significant number of steps.
I've did 2445 steps and counted around 2400(I did a few mistakes while counting). So I think is pretty accurate. I did those steps in urban environment. It actually uses the build in accelerometer for that although for tracking you'll need the location services but that is normal.
I've tested it also indoors and selected walk type exercise. I've made 10 steps and it counted 10 however you'll need to do it in normal pace. The app kicks in if detects certain acceleration so on slow walking(very slow) it doesn't work. I'll keep on testing it the next few days and will see what will happen.
I've tested it on my LG G3
