Actually look this up on Youtube. People make videos of the crappy homemade setups they use to cheat.
Like taping your phone to the ceiling, over a ceiling fan, and the blades hit the phone and make steps. It's rediculous.
Yeah, some folks on for five different fitness trackers and strap them to their arm and leg while they run. Wanted to test them to a paint Shaker and give the cheating accelerated to a really ridiculous point?
I saw Samsung tried addressing this over a year ago.
I'm a competitive person who enjoys competitions. I don't find cheating amusing. I don't even know why people cheat on a flipping step contest. Lame, lame, lame.
This is why I'm selling this POS Gear2 and getting a fitbit.
exactly, this is frustrating, we're on the 1st of March, 2019 and there's a new challenge started today which at the end users have to reach 200,000 and users already reached from the morning 100,000+ steps, THIS IS CHEATING SAMSUNG, please get a way to fix it
Unreal that these folks continue to do this, and that Samsung allows it. Hence why I don't participate in these challenges anymore. I'd rather just set a goal on my own and conquer it....
