Google Fit acting weirdly

I've installed Google Fit on my new Xperia Z5 (used to have the Z2), but it's acting weirdly. It's detecting movement even when the phone is still on the table. I've turned activity detection, mobile networks and location off, too: it's still detecting movement. Is it the app that's screwed? (Maybe because it isn't optimised for Z5?) Or is something going on with the phone?

How accurate is the location? also sometimes the apps have to catch up to sync all the data.

Re: Google Fit acting weirdly

When actually walking or running somewhere, the location is accurate. It's just this evening that it has started logging me as 'active' when the phone is on the table charging and I'm not touching it. However, if I go to the Google Fit web page (http://fit.google.com/), it isn't showing the weird phantom activity. It's so bizarre.

Settings > location > how accurate is the GPS?

Do you have STAMINA mode on? or any other battery saving app/settings?

I have Stamina mode on. I always have Stamina mode on.

Well that explains a lot, it will disable WiFi and mobile data, which means even if you have location on high accuracy it is NOT, since it can't use neither WiFi nor mobile data

Re: Google Fit acting weirdly

I've always had it on those settings and it's never done this until today on either my Z2 or Z5. I've also just tried out the battery saving and device only settings and it's still counting phantom activities, so... 

 

It must be something in the app itself. I've just checked and it updated today, and today is when the problem started. When I log in online, the phantom counting isn't logged in my activity list.

You might have to contact Google regarding this.
