Thanks! I was wearing it on my shoulder strap and now I am wearing it on the center of my bra. Will let you know how that works! I like to check the step counter during the day to see what I have done and if I need to up the activity. If it correlates with the Spark Tracker this week, then I might be able to let it go! I have worn it for 3 years.

Whether I think I can or I think I can't, I am right.

Where are you wearing your Spark? We’ve found that when members adjust how they wear their Spark they get better tracking. You could try the tips below:

- If you wear on your shoe, make sure it is flat on your laces and parallel to ground with the open end of the clip pointing towards the toe. Also make sure it is firmly clipped and not flopping around - we find its best to try to get it through at least 2-3 laces (which really snugs it down).

-If wearing on your bra, try with clip to the skin and the tracker to the outside. If that doesn’t work, try wearing it on the cross strap (not the shoulder strap) towards the side of the body near the underarm. We have seen this give better results for some body types as it helps to hold the tracker securely to the body. But we would still recommend trying it on the shoe or waist first if possible.

- If you wear on your waist, make sure the open end of the clip is pointing towards the ground. Also try to wear as close the outside of your hip as possible.

When I first got my Spark tracker, it was very close to the number of steps measured by my step counter. Now it appears very different - - my Spark is up to date (sync) but it is measuring anywhere from 50% to 75% to 90% compared to my step counter. Anybody having this issue?
