Ratings and Reviews
Watch gets frozen on 0 after midnight about 50% of the time.
Seriously loved this app for my watch at first. After transitioning from a Garmin with the step counter, it was just what I needed to complement the ActivityTracker. However, I keep weird hours, and I am also a run streaker, who often has to do my daily run right at midnight. It’s incredibly frustrating when my watch is frozen at zero day in and day out, and I have to reset it to her three times, and put it on the charger 2 or 3 times before it will finally start counting steps. The steps DO count on the app phone, even if my phone is still, so obviously the app on the watch is tracking the steps, but it will not show up on the watch, where I need it to show up. Currently, my watch shows me to be at less than 500 steps, but my phone shows that I’m closer to 3000. I was wearing the watch while I ran on my treadmill at midnight, but the phone was sitting still on the treadmill. That means that I’m still dependent on my phone to know how many steps I’ve taken, which is pointless. That’s a discrepancy that will not work for somebody who manages statistics the way I do. The entire reason that I have the watch is so that I don’t need to carry my phone. If this can be fixed, I will change my rating to 5- stars.
My opinion of Pedometer
Ok - so I’m fat. Very fat. I’m overweight because I’m too fat to walk .... but if I don’t walk I’ll stay fat. I decided to try out Pedometer to track the few steps I’m able to walk as I have to start somewhere! But at the bottom of the screen it would say I was at 3% of goal. Upsetting to see and made me feel like what’s the use. Then I joined the YMCA this week ( why am I the only fat person there?)and using the bike I was able to do more steps. I came home and looked and was only at 4% of goal after all that work. Then I saw the gear icon in the upper right side of the screen and saw I could change the amount of steps to reach goal. So I changed it to 3,500 steps which is what I was able to achieve today after really pushing myself doing many exercises. Then when I went back to the main screen it flashed green and confetti sprinkled down the page since I achieved my goal. I know I’m getting long winded here but I’m almost done. The moral of this is I have just learned through this great app to set goals that I can achieve - smaller goals and feel successful and motivated thanks to this app. It’s given me a whole new outlook!! Thank you
Would be great if it worked properly.
This app gives you achievements for things like meeting your step goal a certain number of times, or taking a certain number of steps in a day. That’s great, and it really encourages me to walk, moreso than just checking the number of steps on the Apple Health app.
The problem is that it simply doesn’t work properly. Today I climbed a steep hill, and it granted me 0 flights of stairs. I climbed the same hill five minutes later, and this time it gave me four flights. I would have hit an achievement if it had registered the first trek up the hill, but it didn’t.
And then sometimes it just randomly deducts steps I’ve taken. It credits them to me initally (and matches up with the Health app, so it seems to be an accurate number), then suddenly jumps to a much lower number. When I just checked my step count on the lock screen widget, it showed me 7900 steps, which is over my personal goal, thus giving me a 9-day streak. When I entered the app proper, it cut me down to 6449 steps, significantly below my goal and decimating my streak (and the April achievement). This is the third time I’ve seen this happen, and quite frankly, it’s the last. This app does me no good if it doesn’t accurately (or at the very least, consistently) track my activity. I’ll be deleting it and looking into alternatives.
