Redmond, we have a problem

To your left there is data from SensorCore, to your right we have data from MotionX. As interpreted by the Lumia 930 and it's Health & Fitness app, and the UP24 with the iOS UP app. Let's forget about the calorie voodoo and focus on the active time, step count and distance travelled. There is obviously a huge discrepancy and I happen to know that the UP data is very accurate since I know how long I have walked.

I know it's easier for the UP band that swings with the arm than a phone I am carrying around in my pants. But still, I expect better. If you are using Health & Fitness, check your data and see how close it resembles your activity. You may be doing a lot better than you think.

"According to my G Watch, I just did 36 steps WHILE SITTING ON THE TOILET. Fitness tracking is AWESOME."

Ja, das kann schon mal ein Kampf sein.
