Apple Watch 3 Step Inconsistencies. kkilloran — Jan 11, 2018 07:57AM PST

Not sure what I'm doing wrong here, but my Apple Watch (which is the only "step" source linked to MyFitnessPal app) always shows LESS step data than MyFitnessPal. Right now for example, my watch is showing 775 total steps this AM and MFP is showing 1018 as a "Step Adjustment". Is this because the application is constantly trying to forecast the daily assumption?

Thank you for taking the time to contact us. Could you try a fresh reinstall of the MyFitnessPal app and relink your Apple Watch and HealthKit to see if that will help?

Once reinstalled, in MyFitnessPal tap More>Steps>Apple Watch and you should be taken to a page to turn some Categories On. Turn them on and then tap More>Settings>Sharing & Privacy>HealthKit Sharing and you’ll be taken to another page to turn On more Categories. This should relink your Apple Watch and HealthKit.

Hope this helps,
