    I'm having the worst problem finding a step counter that will suit the Darling Bride.

    Most of the apps out there will record steps, but only during a pre-defined interval (like a specific walk/run, in which the user manually starts and stops the counter). We need an app that will record every step, all day long, and keep a cumulative count that is logged day by day. Ideally, it would be an Android app with a companion Wear OS app, and can sync step counts between the two devices.

    Any ideas?

    Doesn't Google Fit do that? I know there are a lot of complaints about it not being "accurate" (in that the value recorded by Fit doesn't always correspond with the value reported by a dedicated pedometer like a Fitbit) but it's generally pretty consistent for me (in that the values reported by Fit seem reasonable and accurate reflect my level of activity from one day to the next).

    Actually, it does! I kept seeing the start/stop icon for certain events... but I couldn't see the forest for the trees. There it is - total steps all day, right in Google Fit.

    Thanks!
