    Getting my Apple Watch 5 Christmas Day! Currently a Fitbit versa owner. I have an app called Drive Bit that I have to open before driving my work vehicle or I get an extra 5-6,000 steps a day due to the vibrations of the vehicle! Anyone have trouble with their Apple Watch adding steps like this? If so is there an app similar to Drive bit for iOS?

    I’ve never had false steps from driving, but I’ve never had an overly rough ride (roads or vehicle suspension) so it suppose it is possible. On the other hand, the watch/phone will detect if you are driving and disable notifications (unless you turn it off). Hopefully the software is also smart enough to know to not count steps when it detects you are moving at car speeds.

    You better watch out
    you better not sigh (close those circles)
    better not shout (not over 90 db anyway)
    I’m telling you why
    Apple Watch is coming to town

    It’s making a list (in Reminders)
    you can check it off twice (though once should be enough)
    Gonna find out who’s lazy or wise (breath in, breath out)
    Apple Watch is coming to town.

    It sees when you are sleeping (with third party app)
    It knows when you’re awake (with third party app)
    It knows when you have sat or stood (the blue circle)
    so stand up for healthness sake (I like making my own words)

    Oh, you better watch out
    you better not sigh
    better not shout
    I’m telling you why
    Apple Watch is coming
