Your RINGLY has been designed to accurately measure your level of activity throughout the day. There may, however, be slight variations between your RINGLY step count and the step count recorded by other activity trackers. Generally, activity tracking devices are considered accurate if they are within 10% of your true steps taken for the day.
If you feel like your variations between devices are significantly greater than 10% there can be several causes to consider:
- Location on body: wrist-based activity trackers will usually accumulate more steps than hip-based sensors because of the higher level of motion on the wrist during the normal course of a day. Furthermore, variations between wrist based devices can arise from being worn on the dominant vs non-dominant hands.
- Fit: Loose fitting devices such as the RINGLY Luxe Smart Bracelet will generally have greater variation than snug fitting bands. If you have a RINGLY GO Smart Bracelet, it will be most accurate when it fits securely on the wrist
- Data Sources: RINGLY uses data from both your RINGLY device and Apple Health. That means you will still get credit for steps taken when not wearing RINGLY or any other activity tracker.
