If your Apple Watch is showing more steps daily than you are seeing logged, your permissions may be out of order. Take a look at this Apple Support Article: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204351 and see if that can solve your problem.

Apple Health Troubleshooting
When troubleshooting Apple Health, it's important to recognize that there are many variables to consider. If someone is using a third-party app or Activity Tracker to connect to Apple Health and then connect to Walkingspree, the settings are very important to reduce error. It's also important to recognize that Walkingspree has no control over third-party apps or Activity Trackers and they frequently update their apps which can then cause issues in the data flow to Apple Health and subsequently to Walkingspree.
1. If you don't have steps in the Walkingspree app, continue steps below.
Apple HealthKit Settings :
1. Open Apple Health App. Ensure that you have steps showing in Apple Health
2. In the Apple Health app, click on sources - Walkingspree. Double-check that "allow Walkingspree to write data" is toggled OFF. Leave "Allow Walkingspree to read data" toggled on
3. Open Walkingspree App - click on menu - connect your devices - Apple Health - disconnect, then click reconnect to connect again.
4. In Walkingspree App - click on menu - go to dashboard - pull down on the screen and wait for it to sync. It can take up to 5 minutes for the first-time sync, please ensure you have a good wifi/data connection.
If that doesn't work, then try the steps below.
2. Double-check you don't have other apps connected to Healthkit, ie. MapMyRun, Runkeeper, or any other GPS based fitness program. These will show up on the timeline in Apple Health if you've done a run and often show a map, etc. These programs use GPS to measure distance and Walkingspree will not capture any steps from activity transferred from a GPS based app to Apple Healthkit.
