Galaxy watch 4 is counting steps while I am swimming, it's totally no sense, because I'm not walking, steps must not be counting whilst swimming? Its impossible no one is complaining about this.  How could I fix this (swimming without counting steps) I want to know my real steps by day!

Well, I am using the older version of the watch but long ago I find my watch only useful giving me the time and notifications. I see my watch showing me on trademill while walking even when I tried to remove "trademill" activity. Anything else is like guess work.

@rap1001fly: Do you have Swimming selected as a workout option when the watch detects your steps (Apps > Samsung Health > Choose Workout > Swimming)? Can you try heading to Settings > Samsung Health > Auto Detect Workouts, and disable Walking or any step-based exercises to see if this helps?

Andrew I will try it today, my watch count more than 1km steps while I was swimming, more than 1000 steps, it's bad because it counts calories that I did not burn and steps that I did not had, many people complain about this problem and everybody ignore it I don't know why because its a bad bug, on mi band there is a app that don't let steps be registered while you are doing exercise because exercise has his own burn calories and it don't need to plus with steps calories. Thanks for the answer, if it not works I will return here :smiling-face:

I try it i and didn't work follow the bugs

1 - in 1000 meter swimming the watch counts 200 steps, i noticed that in each 100 meters the watch counts 20 steps when I swimming in craw style... Chest style not affect the steps...

 

2- I did think that steps were being counting when I swimming only legs because when I swimming like this the watch did not count the laps... But when I swimming only legs the watch did not steps

3 - it seems the watch count steps when I swimming craw a little more fast than I use to, when I swimming craw slowly the steps were not counted

 

As I said, my band has an application that allows stop steps when exercise, why its happening on Galaxy? How could I fix it?
