Device Reset throws it off After a device reset, the counter is thrown off to a negative number and all counter after that show 0 since they are negative numbers. Not sure what is proper way to manually fix it. I see some others have this issue as well.

Inaccurate Says I walked 9,000 steps in an hour when I only walked maybe 1,000. Seems to jump around a lot.

Good update, mostly works fine. But when I updated to 4.4.2 it now says - 26000 steps today. Maybe needs to handle a reset event or something.
