S9+ Samsung Health pedometer too low.

New Member

Hi all,

Puzzling problem here - I have a S6 and a new S9+ and whilst I am waiting for my home mobile number to be transferred onto my new shiny work mobile I have been carrying both phones around with me. I have been finding that every day for the last week the S9+ Health pedometer is considerably lower than the one on my older S6.

Today I picked them both up at the same time, put them both in the side pocket of my bag and walked with both of them recording my steps:

S6 was 11,318

S9+ was 9,980 

That's a BIG difference and I am now not trusting either of them!!

Any ideas anyone? Or do I just give up using the app to track my steps?!!

Thanks loads,

Hi again,

An update on this is that the stupid phones have just merged the totals together and both are now telling me that I walked 21,298 steps..... sigh...


Thanks loads, Cathy
