Doing the math
I just did the math on my calibration walk with the pedometer.
The first half mile was 1,170 steps.
Then I turned around and basically walked back to where I started from. That was 997 steps.
And the first mile came out to 2,167 steps.
Then I walked a 1.25 mile loop and I didn't have a good point in the middle to stop and measure.
That 1.25 mile walk came out to 2,456 steps. Dividing by 1.25 equals 1964.8 for the second mile.
So one mile measured out at 2,167 steps and a second mile measured out at 1,964.8 steps.
Perhaps one simple way to estimate is that 2,000 steps equals about a mile, 1000 steps equals about a half mile and 500 steps equals about a quarter mile.
If nothing else, that will work well for simplicity's sake and I should be able to remember it.
