Pedometer counting Phantom steps when I move my phone back and forth

JUMP TO SOLUTION

I love the fact that Samsung Health count my steps. I feel great, when I look down and see I've walked over eight miles for the day. Sometimes, the count goes up and I've noticed sometimes that if I move my phone around, it counts steps. Please help as I like to know how much I walked  accurately.

The phone has accelerometers which are used to detect motion. If you move your phone in a motion similar to what it would experience when you are walking it assumes that you are indeed walking and counts steps.
