Garmin Fenix 3 and the activity tracker (step counter) – UPDATE 2: 19/05/2015

UPDATE (Click here for the: original post and update 1) 

It seems that bus rides count as steps too! The first photo was taken at that start of the trip, from Valletta. I was comfortably seated in the mid-section of the vehicle. The second pic was at my destination, Xemxija, about 20km later. Not a particularly bumpy ride by local standards but, just like when I ride my motorbike, vibrations are interpreted as steps.

    I think a good feature might be a “manual override” to the step counter…the ability to turn step counter off when you know you will be traveling to avoid unwanted step counts.

    • That’s an idea. In truth, the novelty of having my steps counted has worn off. Besides, it’s quite unnecessary really if you’re involved in sporting activities on a regular basis.
