How accurate is the step counter?

Moves recognizes steps when you are continuously walking or running. Accuracy is good when following day-to-day changes in activity levels, or comparing step counts to daily targets. To conserve battery power, very short walks (less than 30 sec) are not always counted, except on iPhone 5s and Android phones with hardware step counting. If your car/train ride is bumpy and you see steps increasing in the app, don’t worry; they are eventually removed from the daily total when the data is analyzed in more detail (unlike some other pedometers and gadgets).
