Why does Google Fit App show different numbers on different devices?
0
I logged into my Google Fit account on a new device and the data for the previous days looks completely different from what I see on an old device. I have a different amount of calories burned on these 2 devices connected to the same Google account.

Some examples:
1) On Device A there are 2033 calories burned and 2 walks added on August 25, on device B there are 1872 calories burned and only one of the walks is in the list. These 2 devices have the same timezone, same account, same everything. I checked if this missing walk is on the next or previous day — but no.



2) Similar this is on August 13. Device A: 1878 calories burned, 5 entries show up. Device B: 1872 calories, 1 entry.



3) May 2. Device A: 2382 calories from 4 entries. Device B: 2389 calories from 3 entries.



That's absolutely weird and unpredictable user experience. There are many services which depend on Google Fit API and I can't even imagine what data are they supposed to get if Google Fit is showing different numbers on different devices, being updated to the latest version. Please explain how does it work and what number is going to GF API.

The final checklist:
  • Same account on 2 devices ✅ 
  • The latest version on 2 devices ✅
  • Same timezone on 2 devices ✅
  • Screenshots are taken after force-closing the app within 5-10 minutes (you can see time on pics) ✅

P.S. unfortunately there is a 3 images limit, so I attached pictures for one of the cases, but other 2 are similar.

Some more info for the investigation:
Device A is the phone that the steps were tracked. On this phone some steps were likely tracked through the phone itself, but most were likely tracked using a Mi Smart Band 6. Device B is a separate phone that I logged into later. This might help.
