Can you use a Fitbit to count the number of steps in a step workout?

I'm not sure which Fitbit you have, but I have a Versa 3 and I start my step workouts with the exercise categorized as "Workout" and it records the number of steps I take (among other things) so it works for me.

Thanks. About how many steps do you take in a workout?

Jackie, that's kind of hard to answer as my step workouts vary from 45 minutes to an hour plus and number of steps hasn't been my focus, but I looked at the past few that I've done and I averaged about 100 steps per minute. Hope that helps!

It might help if you can put your Fitbit on your ankle.
I will put mine on my ankle for spin classes or if I'm walking while pushing a stroller cause it won't register my steps holding the stroller steady.
