Woke up at 3:50AM, both watches immediately on wrists.

Went to the gym at 4:30AM, lighted weights for approx. 47 minutes including 3 minutes of elliptical as a warm up.

Notes:

It seems, when exercising, the two devices have nearly the same performance from the two major things I’ll be doing. Lifting weights was good. Still seeing vastly different step counts. So far I think what I was mentioning was true, Fitbit is over what I actually stepped and Samsung is drastically under. This would be especially difficulting since the Fitbit appears to use movement in nearly any pattern and the Galaxy Watch tends to watch movement overtime to determine if you’re walking. It brings into question, what is a “step” really.

Observations:

The Samsung Health application on the phone is rather crap. Not that fitbit is the most direct UI, but at least I can view past data easily.
