Got one at Christmas time for my son. Step counter registers 1 step for every 3. Just got a new replacement Gadget Watch and it is worse, and inconsistent. I called in, and there are no fixes for this. My $10 pedometer is way more accurate. Anyone else have the same problem?
Grbuc1, that's certainly an unusual issue! Have you spoken to the manufacturer, to explore possible fixes?

I escalated it with Verizon. Hopefully they will follow up with manufacturer if enough others complain. Former model, Gizmo Gadget was manufactured by LG. This model, I'm told, is made by Quanta, some Chinese company and I can't find contact info (at least in English). Maybe just a bad batch of accelerometers.
If just under $200 is " El Cheapo." A fairly accurate pedometer does not take rocket science, and this feature is a selling point with this childs' device. I'm hoping if enough people are having issues, they will fix the problem.
It’s important that your daughter’s GizmoWatch device is working as expected. I’d love the opportunity to further investigate this device issue with you.
Can you confirm the exact model GizmoWatch your daughter has, and can you share more details on exactly what she’s experiencing with the device?
