I walked 8,000 steps with the Apple Watch Series 9 and the Fitbit Inspire 3 — and one was way more accurate

Hey, I've noticed you've used this sort of clickbait title frequently* and it's annoying enough that I'm tempted to block Tom's Guide from my Google Discover / Artifact feed. Please stop doing this. Thank you!

* at least four articles this year: "I walked [xxxx] steps with the [device] [...] here's which is more accurate."

Better: "[Device] shows significant more accuracy in measuring steps than competitor."

This isn't an accurate comparison between devices and technologies within devices. Of course the $400 apple device is going to have more capability than the less $100 Fitbit but then apple wouldn't dream of making a device in that price point. A more accurate and useful article would be to compare similar devices together with similar capabilities and technologies such as the apple watch and Fitbit Sense series.

A rather pointless article, posing as a scientific analysis of the two devices. I realize articles that begin with words such as “I tested…” are very popular at the moment but I see them as lazy journalism. I don’t know the author of this article but my reaction to any article headline containing the word “I” is: why should I trust you or care about what you have to say?

What happened to journalists doing actual research and providing an objective analysis based on that research?
