why do samsung allow cheating on samsunghealth challenges

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.

Today just opened April's challange. According to the app. Trump has over 198k steps. If a marathon is approximately 55k that means he did 3+ marathons today.

First of May. Me 12,000 steps by early afternoon. Someone else over 170,000. I think I need to up my game. I'm clearly not motivated enough.

Seriously though it's sad to see that these people take the fun out of the community event when everyone is ultimately a looser in the sense they cannot legitimately complete with these unrealistic "achievements".

Hi I am pretty sure it's not that its being allowed it's just that its not policed as it's not a security threat 

If people are cheating it then they are cheating themselves more than any thing 

I do understand your frustration though as I use it myself on my gear fit 2 and without even trying I have 250000 up to now
