The exact same problem stil persists. Obviously Samsung doesn't give a ***** about their customers. Solution could be very easy: asuper athletic human being can do a certain number of steps per day, this figure can be set as an upper limit (with some margin). Exceeding this limit for a couple of days for example should disqualify the participant. No rocket science if Samsung cares!
I have been working real hard to lose weight and have been increasing workouts. However I have the new S10 and I think its double counting. I also tried to see how one is able to cheat. I swung my arm forward and back with hrad in phone and counter went up. So yes ppl will be cheating. That said, they cheat on themselves. It should be about personal achievement. Sod everyone else.
