Fit isn't tracking activities correctly

Walking, running, and biking detection isn’t perfect on Fit because your device’s sensors may record information differently than others.

You can try to fix problems with how Fit tracks an activity.

Change Fit’s permissions

Google Fit uses data from your phone to estimate your activity. To get more accurate estimates, turn on location and activity tracking.

You notice an activity you didn't perform

You notice different data on your watch and phone

If the activity numbers are different on your watch and phone, move the devices closer together so they can sync.

You can't find your past activities 

You might have to wait several hours before your stats show up on all your devices when you first connect or if you reconnect.
