My trusty Wii U step-counter has been through a lot. The paint has rubbed off of all the buttons, it's covered in scratches and scrapes, and I burn through its battery regularly. I hate to throw shade at what has been a loyal, hard-working device.
But after carrying both devices in my pocket today, my new Fitbit is reporting over a thousand steps above the Wii U! Has my step count been underreported all these years?
Or is the Fitbit, a new addition to my routine not yet sure of its place in the hierarchy, giving me extra steps in an attempt to flatter me?
I wonder which device is more accurate. Both have their fans and detractors online, so I really don't know which one works better. I think the important thing for me to keep in mind is whichever device I use, I need to make sure that I'm actively keeping the step count above my daily goal of 10,000 - as long as the activity happens, I suppose it doesn't really matter if I'm off by a few hundred steps one way or the other.
