Google fit steps vs Pocket Plants steps

Hi, I track my steps with both google fit and pocket plants. I noticed that google fit always counts a lot more steps than Pocket Plants every day. Sometimes when I walk a few hundred steps I will check the game app, but I realize only 3 or 4 steps are counted. Is there any way to reduce the difference?

Hi, can you please confirm Pocket Plants is running in the background mode? Some operation system will try to remove 3rd party games automatically when RAM is running low.
