    I do about 11,000....which normally averages about 5-6 miles! I wonder how accurate this watch is, and how it tracks. Anyone know?

    From what I hear, the Apple Watch is fairly accurate counting steps. I average about 4,000 steps a day. . . . Here is some more information:

    Around 6-7000. But it is prompting me to get up and move around a little bit more. Which is a good thing.

    Nice! It's one of the reasons I really like this watch! I'm really against a lot of steady state cardio on a machine(treadmill), so I hope this watch really shows people that lots of aerobic activity(such as walking) is SO much more effective for exercise!!

    My goal is 15000, and sometimes I get up to 25000. I've never gotten to 30k, though. Yet...

    I use my FitBit One to track my 8,000-9,000 steps each day.

    I've never checked how many steps I take a day. I doubt as many as what I'm seeing here from y'all. I would guess maybe 5,000 steps a day, if that many.
    How many steps do u average per day?-imageuploadedbytapatalk1431042840.338096.jpg

    My steps vary depending on how much I run. I get between 7 and 15 thousand and it feels fairly accurate. I carry my phone with me so I believe it is tracking distance. It does get to know your pace and how you move the more you use it. There are suggestions on calibrating it, taking a 20 minute walk outside on fairly flat land on a clear day with good cellular connection. Do this a few times at varying paces and it will get to know you faster.

    I should keep track of my steps, but I wish to do at least 10,000 a day! That will definitely help lose weight.

    I average about 6-7000 per day. What I really like about the watch is it recognizes playing an instrument as exercise. I'm a tuba and string bass player, and I am consistently getting more minutes of exercise on days when I play.

    It tracks exercise based off of your heart rate as far as I know. So that could be why you get your exercise in. All the quick moving/heavy breathing.

    I have the same thing happen with my Microsoft Band (don't have my Watch yet) when I'm playing my guitar. I can generate 1500+ steps in a half hour of playing.

    As for my step average, it's hard to tell. I have a desk job with long hours. There are days were I'm below 2500 steps. On weekends, I can get up over 10k pretty easily just doing chores around the house. If I had to guess, I'd say somewhere between 5 and 6 thousand is the average.

    ** EDIT**

    Just looked at my weekly step counts on the Band app. Low was around 36k steps and high was just over 46k. So I am in the 5.5 to 6.5 thousand range.

    Let's see. I'm at 9, 579 at the moment, but I just finished a 5-mile walk/run combo. I should be well over 10K by day's end...

    Sadly around 5900 steps daily. My office work is very demanding so I don't really have time to move at all.
    Though the Apple Watch keeps reminding me to stand up, but no I can't, just too busy
    When I go home I feel so tired both mentally and physically that I don't want to go for any workout.

    I've stepped my game since my first post (8500)
    Averaging 10,000 now.
    You guys made me feel guilty.
    I'm afraid in order for me to get much above 10,000, I'm gonna have to stop driving.
    Good Luck
