Haven't written on here for ages , but am still running and loving it . Just a question , does anyone think their jaw bone is accurate . I ran and walked about 4 miles yesterday and did the normal day to day walking about eg shopping , tidying and entertaining and it only registered6500 steps . I am pretty active but this doesn't seem accurate to me . Would appreciate your comments

  • Easy answer is no! I just ran 3 miles this morning and that has registered as 6,750 steps (including the pottering about I did before I ran). It's until just gone 9 in the morning and I still have the rest of the day to go....

  • Perhaps it's just mine then , thanks

  • I don't know about the jawbone. I have a misfit shine and it's almost perfect to my Garmin distance after a run as it logs it as a different speed. It's the only pedometer that I have used that seems accurate to me as some of the other ones I've used didn't calibrate to my stride. It does sound like your count should of been higher with all that. Hope you get to the bottom if it.

  • I have an UP24. I think it counts my steps quite accurately but overestimates the distance I do, although it has my height it doesn't seem to understand I have short legs and a short stride. When I run I track the run on runkeeper and have it upload the data to UP which UP then matches to my steps, but with the GPS distance rather than UP's estimate. Given it seems to count steps accurately I am not bothered as it will behave the same from day to day and therefore enable me to see overall trends. Hubbie is most amused that we go for a walk together, I take 5 or 6 strides for every 4 he takes and UP thinks I have gone a lot further than him.
