What good is the step counter in S Health (Galaxy S7 edge) if you can't set your pace/stride? If there are such settings to be made where are they?
I suspect it is all done by a gps algorithm of average steps over a gps tracked distance that also figures calories?

Susan, what is the objective you have?
Fair enough... I'm wondering if the total steps is at all accurate (or if that even matters) but couldn't find any way of setting my step. I think I may be answering my own questions here. So, what started this was noticing there was no way of setting your step or pace but now I'm thinking that doesn't matter? Is the calorie estimate more/less accurate?
On second thought the real objective may just be what the accuracy is?
Thank you for that clarification. I'd next and related like to know how accurate the calories burned over a distance/time is? Are the algorithm(s) pretty good now for steps, walking, hiking, sleeping, biking, swimming, rowing, treadmill--these are all the ones I currently use. Thanks.
I don't have an issue with the number of steps. I don't really care. I'm interested in the distance and the distance is wrong. Used two different GPS trackers at the same time Samsung Health showed 1.8 miles the other two showed 1.98 miles and 2.0 miles. Another time on the same route, Samsung Health showed 1.54 miles . So the GPS tracker is not very good in Samsung health
Fitzy+ app ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=plus.fitzy.fitzy_app ) has made my old Galaxy S7 relevant again. I can check my steps, pace, cardiovascular health now. Good that there are still some app developers who think about old devices like Galaxy S7. @SusanS7e
