Does my arm, which I have my watch on, have to swing when I walk to get my steps? Don't want to miss any steps. Thanks

  • Steps are counted using a combination of the accelerometer in your iPhone and Apple Watch plus data from your height/distance travelled. It gets more accurate the more you use it. The answer to your question is no, they will be counted if your arm isn't swinging.
