Motion detection, steps, and Microsoft app

So one of the things that I used to use a lot was the step counter to track my miles of walking in Boston all day.

I used a step counter app, and also Microsoft Band App.

I do have a Microsoft band but don't really use it very much only looking for the functionality of the device to count steps like the 950 XL used to.

The HP however seems to count almost every motion as a step and I wind up with thousands of steps at the end of the day

Any clue if I'm doing something wrong or if it is a bug, and if HP might consider addressing this

Certainly not an enterprise issue but just another issue that was fun and useful

I wonder if it was my device. I recently went from 10-12,000 steps per day to over 30,000. I thought it was the band

Up date to band app made no difference here. Hope this gets fixed

I've noticed this too. May be a bug in the last firmware update (going by dates/step count on my MS Health dashboard), unless anyone knows where I can find a changelog for the Band app?
For now, you can turn off the x3's step counter in Settings > Privacy > Motion > turn off Microsoft Band slider.
