Forum rules
Dear forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

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.
