I have friends who wear their trackers on their ankles when they aren't "walking" and seem to get a better step track. I'm not sure how the wristband fits on an ankle or in a sock, but they will do that for other tracking.

My DD has a Fitbit HR and will log 2000+ septs practicing the piano.

Is it working now?

I had it on my nondominant wrist which is where I always wear it. Usually it works very well and I do not understand what happened.

Thank you, I may try that. I have no idea, I know that I was back and forth and all over the place. I was going to try to estimate that I walked close to 4000 steps because I never really stopped.

Do you know how many miles you walked, roughly? It is about 2000 steps per mile so maybe you can calculate from that?
They have a support page on-line, maybe they can help?

I've never heard of a bellabeat. Where did you wear it? That makes all the difference. I found that out the hard way with my Fitbit.

HELP! I was walking all morning long, I was very busy with my church's pancake breakfast and was so hopeful to see how many steps I had done when I got home. I wear a BellaBeat fitness tracker and for the most part I have really liked it, until today. I get home, sync up my phone to my tracker and it had NO steps or activity tracked! On my feet moving back and forth constantly from 8:45 to 11:28 and absolutely NOTHING!? I am quite frustrated. I like the look of the Bellabeat, it is designed for women and doesn't look like a tracker, and now I guess it doesn't act like one either. I left the fitbit behind when my arm broke out from my fitbit flex. HELP! Aside from a general pedometer I am about to give up!
