Steps Count hsmcdonald71 — Apr 16, 2018 04:10AM PDT

My total steps in my watch activity app and my steps in my health app are the same. My steps in my MFP daily diary do not match my steps in watch activity and health apps. New activity data starts at midnight each night. Being a night shift employee, I've changed "breakfast", "lunch" & "dinner" to "12a-8a", "8a-4p" & "4p-12a" to log my food so my daily diary and my steps activity will be more accurate for MY 24hr log.

Example: Tonight at midnight all steps started over at 0
At 0310 step total in health app = 5780
watch app = 5780
MfP app = 5934

At 0540 step total in health app = 6958
watch app = 6958
MFP app = 6174

I'm just trying to understand the inconsistency with the step counts. I've followed all instructions to sync devices with apps. If the inconsistencies are normal I will not watch steps so closely, if not, and I'm doing something wrong, I just need to know how to fix what I'm doing wrong.
