Spot the difference.

Worn all day, side-by-side. 24-hours. Midnight Wednesday to Midnight Thursday.

I have been testing this for MONTHS!

I have had doubts about the accuracy of the ‘Fitbit Inspire HR’ from day one — i.e., way back in mid-March when I was given one for evaluation.

I did various documented tests and started wearing the Fitbit Inspire alongside other trackers. Even roped in my wife to help in that she wears a Garmin Vivosport.

To begin with the overcounting of steps — i.e., FALSE STEPS — by the Fitbit Inspire was horrible. It was way, way, way out.

Then a few days ago I downloaded the latest Fitbit firmware. I was sure that they would have tried to fix the problem — which was pretty widely known.

Well it has got better, but it is not perfect.

600 FALSE STEPS is still a LOT.
