You'll need to determine what your average stride is. walk a predetermined number of steps, the more the better, and then measure what distance you traveled. Divide ditance by steps and you'll get your average stride length. Then all you need to do is multiply your stride distance by the number of steps you've recorded to find your distance traveled on your pedometer.
