Our products gather your step/calorie data via an algorithm our team made that determines how far one's arm would swing while walking at a normal pace. This algorithm is based off of the height, weight and gender of user.
This means that if your arms are stationary wile you work out (i.e. your hands are on your bikes handlebars or in you pocket while walking) it will not register your steps taken/calories burned, but might register them when you arms move while driving or waving to someone.
Like playing basketball or badminton? With the latest algorithm update, our watch has stricter requirements for step counting. And the watch will filter out those unreal walking, like playing tennis, badminton or basketball.
