The fitness band is working fine. It counts the steps with approximately 90 percent accuracy. Every single footstep is counted as one step. I tried with stairs climbing but it didn't record but I was climbing very slowly so probably it couldn't sense. So I give a benefit of doubt. It's light weight and easy to use. You can download all the data to your linked phone via Bluetooth where you can view detailed reports day, week and month wise. Overall I am satisfied with the results.
