How to start an app?
After installing Accupedo app, you just need to walk. The app will do the rest. Accupedo will automatically wake up and count your steps when you start to walk, and will go to sleep while your phone is at still to minimize a battery. ***Accupedo may not work for a few phones when phone is at standby (screen is off). In this case, we recommend you to try Google Fit or built-in step count method. Also, please check Troubleshooting.
• Pause / resume: You can pause or resume step counts anytime. This button is located at the below of step counts at the main screen. Tap a pause / resume button (or step count number), then it will pause. You need to tap again to resume.
Sensing methods for step counts
There are three sensing methods: Accupedo, Google Fit, and built-in step counter. Go to Settings window and choose your preferred method. Initial setting is a built-in step counter method.
• Accupedo: This method uses phone's internal acceleration sensor (G-sensor) to calculate step counts. At this method, you can configure more parameters including power usage mode, sensitivity, smart filter, and consecutive steps.
• Google Fit: This method reads data from Google Fit. Step counting is not real-time, so there will be some time delay. Your data will be stored at Google Fit. It requires an additional location permission and Wi-Fi (or mobile network).
• Built-in step counter: This method reads data from a built-in step counter of Android phone. It may count your steps more reliably without consuming battery. This option may not be available for some phones.
