You can track your steps directly on your Apple Watch via the Fitness app, the Fitness app, or the Health app for iPhone. If you want to see the number of steps you’ve taken each day without having to tap the Fitness app on your Apple Watch, you can add a pedometer complication to your watch face. Here’s everything you need to know.
