Read your article and while it's a decent watch, I regret buying it. The main reason is that I have a set of stairs in my house that I go up and down 20-30 times a day. I'm lucky if it registered a single flight. From what I learned it's because Samsung says you have to travel 10 ft for ti to be considered a flight of stairs while my floors are only 9 ft apart. If I lay my hand on the floor before going up the stair and raise them over my head when I get to the top I sometimes get credit. My wife's FitBit doesn't have a problem tracking stairs. My really old FitBit didn't either. But my Galaxy Dumb Watch can't figure it out. They need a setting to allow users to reduce the distance that needs traveled or it needs to count half flights. If it doesn't track my exercise than what's the point. Add to that it's much more complex than the FitBit. More features doesn't mean better. This will be my last Samsung watch purchase.
