Omron only counts aerobic minutes and not total minutes during the day. It does count total steps but only those that are continuous for ten or more minutes will be counted as aerobic. So, if you take a walk for 3.5 miles, it would count the amount of time that you took to walk that distance (in one or a few extended walks.) I count these minutes for exercise as casual walking really doesn't count as it doesn't raise the heart rate.
I also count my total steps as this is part of the increased activity during the day but I count them in different places. I hope this helps.
