Is there anyway to disable/pause step accumulation whilst swimming? There's a way to pause step counting on the phone for the phone, surely when you select a swimming session there is a way for the step count to be paused until you press finish so that it stops adding 2000-4000 steps to my daily step counts as its throwing out my calories and step targets.

Hi did you manage to get an answer to stopping steps tracking when swimming? My active 2 is doing it and adding so many more calories and steps to me day its driving me mad. Samsung themselves are no help. Am thinking I love the watch as a smart watch but maybe need to move brands

Has anyone found a solution? My galaxy watch 3 never had this issue, but I go and spend £450 on a watch 5 pro and hey presto, no basic functionality included for that price! Turning off auto record doesn't help during the swim
