If you tap the device 5 times and the lights light up when you're next to the dongle plugged into your computer, what happens?

I spark tracker did not track my steps today. Needless to say I am disappointed. Does anyone have any tips to make sure it works? I thought I saw the light go all the way around this morning. When I looked just now there are 0 steps.

It will count those steps, but won't count them as an exercise "event" in your fitness tracker.

Hi again, does it track steps? So if I walk 20 steps stop to work and get up to walk another 20, does it count steps?

Thanks!!

You have to get at least 10 minutes of continuous activity for it to register an exercise "event" on your tracker. So you are correct that if you walk for a few minutes, stop for a few, then walk for a few more, that won't register as a workout.

Hi, I ordered my tracker through Amazon to save on shipping.

I'm a little concerned as I have read that if you are going for a walk and you have to stop for a couple minutes it will start over not registering the time you just walked?

Thanks..looking forward to receiving it!
