      Thank you for your feedback. The vívofit is a basic activity tracker, providing steps, distance, calories burned, and heart rate. To optimize accuracy on the vívofit, you will want to make sure your personal information (including age, weight, height, activity level, step/run length, training zones etc.) are entered correctly via your device/user settings on Garmin Connect and have been synced to the device. The vívofit does not use GPS, so it relies on your arm movement to determine steps. Calories are calculated based on your BMR (non-active calories) plus your active calories (from steps and distance, also heart rate if wearing a heart rate monitor). Discrepancies in step count, such as false steps or added steps, are explained in more detail at the FAQ link below:
