trying to understand why Samsung provide a service like global step challenge and then allow cheats to dominate the board every month.. it's not rocket science that if someone dies 200000 steps a day they are cheating or if on average they have done 2 steps a second , every second eithout sleep since the challenge opened they are cheating. why don't Samsung care about this and stop it ? it puts a lot of people off using the service

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

I'm sure that 250k you got wasn't in one day like the people on there now. It's just not possible unless you have multiple gears, phones, and other things that is tracking more than one person's real steps.

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?

The fact that it can even be registered means it's being allowed.

I think is much more! In the days I make 29000 steps per day, that being a lot of walking during one day, it means 18.93km which translates to 11 miles. From here do the math. Also, I'm constantly in top 5% of all users which are using SHealth, still in challenges I hardly finish in top 20% !? We should not forget that this is on daily basis for them, no rest, no sleep, no shopping, no eat, no going to pub, no sex, no nothing.. just walking! :))

Yes. Cheating, unfortunately is a big part of some people's DNA. YOU ARE SO RIGHT! If they get banned, there will be 10 new ones.

The person in the lead of the tomato challenge is 2/3 done with the challenge when it just started 11 hours ago. How ? They "won" the last 20 in a row? Samsung needs to bust the cheaters!Cheat!Cheat!

I walk 7 to 10 miles a day, 5 days a week. It is physically impossible to walk over 2 million steps in 12 days. These people need to be banned from global challenges! They are ruining it for the rest of us! If Samsung does not do something I will no longer participate in this nonsense. I feel sorry for the sad pathetic human beings that think this is ok. You only cheat yourself and your health and prevent those of us that actually do try from getting any recognition for our true accomplishments. I wish you nothing but self respect!
