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.
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.
