    On note 7 it had ability to detect walking steps, does pixel have any of those sensors so I don't have to wear a fitbit?

    Yes, but you need to install Google Fit - https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...d.apps.fitness

    I don't particularly care for it, but, yes, it should be able to count your steps.

    Yes, like he said, Google Fit. Works great. Just got a fitbit charge 2 for Xmas, so I did an accuracy comparison during a recent walk. The pixel was in my left pocket, fitbit on my wrist. They were within 6 steps of each other. Over 2500 steps for that walk.

    Cool so it auto detects once installed and don't have to enable it manually right

    Note that you need to have the phone physically on you at all times for this to work...

    Yeah, but sometimes you can trick it.

    For example, I don't currently use Google Fit, but I noticed in the past that even when just sitting on the treadmill's front panel (when at the gym), it did a pretty good job of counting my paces. It is the rhythmic motion that it picks up, apparently.
