Steps Vs distance

Post by Emsiger » Fri May 03, 2019 1:17 am

Hi community,
does anybody know how tic watch pro and mobvoi app calculate the distance according to the reached steps per day?
I could not find anything in the settings but I m sure the step length will be different from people to people.
According to my data it looks that the calculated distance is not accurate.

Hi Emsiger,

They have a 'health information' section for your profile within the Mobvoi app. You can enter your age, height, weight, step goal etc..


Regards,

Hi Cathal_S,

thx for your reply to my question. When I installed the mobvoi app I entered all the data into my profil, like age, weight etc. But what I personally missed is the possibility to enter the length/step. I guess it could be between 60-80cm per step,depending on the person. And if this can not be done either the step count or the result of the distance will not be accurate.

Hi again,

My guess is that your height and gender are being used to calculate your step length.
Determine your stride length using your height. While this is not as accurate as some other methods, it can give you a close estimate of your stride length. For women, simply multiply 0.413 by your height in centimeters. Men should multiply 0.415 by their height in centimeters. Round off the answer to the nearest whole number and this equals your stride length in centimeters.

Hi Cathal_S,
your assumtion should be correct.
According my hight (1,86 calculated with 0,415), the strite length should be 77 cm round 80cm which is almost correct.

My Question is now, why the Mobvoi app calculate almost my strite length with approx 100 cm?
I made two screenshots (see attached) and looks like it doesn't matter if I made only a few steps (around 1300) or many more.
The result is always the same.

Hi
I am wondering that nobody answered, even no moderator, because something must be wrong with the calculation. The problem is still ongoing even after reset of the ticwatch.

Hi Aathif, @ all,

some more example am screenshot below:

01.06.2019 14664 steps 14,14 km distance
03.06.2019 12990 steps 12,65 km distance
04.06.2019 11469 steps 11,00 km distance

This figures mean a step length between 95-97 cm per step for myself, which is almost impossible.
All my personal data were correct entered in my Mobvoi profi but as I said even after a reset nothing changed.
With this kind of calculation the distance is not correct,and not real usefull.

Any idea what can be done?
