Using Garmin Fenix 5 Plus To Check Accuracy Of The New Fitbit Inspire HR — Wearing Them Side-by-Side.
Click to ENLARGE.
I have a hunch (albeit now with some proof) that the Fitbit Inspire HR overcounts steps even by the generous, overoptimistic standards of Fitbit.
Testing against my trusted Garmin Fenix 5 Plus should be the acid test.
I now have a hunch to what is happening with the Inspire HR. It is way light and the accelerometer doesn’t take into account its lightweight. I could be wrong.
I don’t just measure the steps at the end of the day. I keep a log, on an Excel spreadsheet! Yes, I will publish my findings.
Wish me luck.
