    Has anyone with the series 3 tested the altimeter for accuracy? My S3 Nike Plus is grossly misrepresenting my floors climbed. I’m comparing to my Fitbit, which is pretty spot on most days. Yesterday, I climbed 11 flights of stairs and my S3 registered only 1. Today, I’ve climbed 29 and the S3 has only counted 2.

    What is everyone else seeing?

    Mine is pretty spot on. I believe that I read somewhere that a flight of stairs is equivalent to 16 steps.

    Still not sure why yours seems so off though.

    I think for Fitbit it’s 10’ elevation. I hope I didn’t get a lemon.

    Mine works just fine. Maybe time to go to the Genius Bar?

    Perhaps. Big bummer.

    I seem to recall that I had to have the iPhone turned off in order for the voices to download, while the Watch was connected to WiFi, on the charger, and with the Mickey Mouse watch face active.

    Was this meant to be in a different thread?

    OOOps. I just followed a link from my e-mail, and thought I was responding to the thread about the voices not downloading to someone's watch. Mea culpa!

    I'd hold off on the HALO jumps until you get that fixed. Or have you already done so?
