You cant walk in square feet as this is an area.
you walk in linear feet. a straight line.
if you walk 26 linear feet in 10 strides then your stride length is 2.6 feet or 2 and a half feet per step.

### Math Problem Help?

2 feet 8 inches is is 32 inches.

4,500 x 32 is 144,000 inches

divide it by 12 to to bring it back to feet. The answer is 12,000.

When working in feet, which have 12 inches, it is easier to bring to a single figure rather than using fractions. This is the benefit of the Metric system as everything is based on 10s and hundreds and thousands. Millimeters, Centimeters and Metres.

### Hiw many miles is 6710 steps

An average stride is 30 inches. Let's say yours is 10% greater than that, or 33 inches.

A mile is 5280 feet, or 63360 inches. You have walked 6710 * 33 inches or 221430 inches. 221430/63360 is 3.49 or about 3.5 miles.

### What is the formula to figure out the pace

(I got this from http://www.livestrong.com/article/93695-set-up-omron-pedometer/)
Step 1

Pace out an area that's long enough for you to take 10 normal steps, in your natural stride, without having to turn to one side or the other. Place a piece of tape at one end of this distance, then stand with your toes flush with the edge of the tape.
Step 2

Carry another piece of tape with you as you walk straight ahead, taking 10 steps (5 with your left foot, 5 with the right). Stop at the end of the tenth step and place the tape flush with the toes of your leading foot.
Step 3

Measure the distance from one piece of tape to the other, in inches, with a measuring tape. Divide this distance by 10 to get your average stride length. If, for example, you walked 290 inches in 10 strides, your average stride length will be 290 / 10 = 29 inches.

### I lost my directions and don't know how to change my stride to a lower number.

Manual is here: http://www.sportline.com/manuals/340.pdf
INPUT YOUR STRIDE LENGTH (Range: 12 inches to 60 inches or 30cm to 150cm) 1. Walk 10 steps. 2. Measure the distance that you've walked either from heel-to-heel or toe-to-toe. 3. Divide by the distance covered to arrive at your Stride Length. 4. Example: measured distance 360 inches, number of steps taken was 10 = 36 inches stride length. Important: Please remember that the length of your stride while walking is different than the length of your stride while running. If you plan to use this pedometer for both types of exercise, you will have to reprogram your stride length when you go from one to the other. 5. Press MODE button to reach the DISTANCE MODE showing MILE or KM. 6. In DISTANCE MODE, press the SET button. The display will show previous stride input in Inches or CM and start to flash. You will now have five seconds to start changing your stride length. If you do not adjust your stride length during these 5 seconds, you will have to start step 3 over again. 7. To change your stride length while the display is flashing, press the RESET button. Each press of the RESET button will increase the input by either 1 inch or 2 cm depending on which mode you are in. If you hold the RESET button, the numbers will increase continuously. Release when the display shows the Stride Length for you. 8. Once you have entered your stride length properly, wait 5 seconds - the display will flash and reset the memory - and the display will return to DISTANCE MODE

### My Omron Walking Style 1 pedometer is not recording all steps.

OK I couldn't find the owners manual for the original posters unit however I did write to the manufacturer so I will keep you updated on that. So basic pedometer trouble shooting. If you replaced the batteries you have to reset all your settings including your stride length. make sure the unit is not hanging off where you click it as irregualr movements will mess up the accuracy. also ensure the unit is upright at all times. Also make sure you are not shuffling or wearing sandals as that will mess up the stride count as well Here is the manual for the HJ-112 model http://www.omronhealthcare.com/img/shop/hj-112---2005-112inst-rev-d.pdfll.

The Sportline 4202 has three buttons, Top MODE, Right S/R (RESUME/STOP), Left SET.

MODE - press once to alternate between Steps (how many steps you taken) and Miles (how many miles walked).

S/R - Clears the count to 0 for any mode by pressing one second. To change from Kilometers to Miles or Back Press S/R for 6 seconds.

R/S press one sec and then press SET one second to set "goals" for both steps and miles.

To change length of stride: press the buttons one at a time in the following order- R/S-SET-MODE.

It may take several attempt to get into the set stride and it may take you into other menus such as Goals in the process, just keep going in circles until you get to stride and change length with R/S and set with SET.

### I am having problems with my Pedometer. What should I do?

Review the following questions for common pedometer troubleshooting: a) Where are you wearing the pedometer? Make sure you are wearing your pedometer correctly by following these steps: * Clip your pedometer to your waistband or belt, directly above your knee. * Be sure your pedometer is perpendicular to the ground, not angled or dangling from your clothing. * Do not wear the pedometer on your shoe, sock, pocket or wrist. It will not provide an accurate reading. * Test the pedometer for accuracy by setting the step counter to zero and walking 50 steps. Check the display. If the reading is between 45-55, your step counter is functioning properly. If it reads more or less, reposition the counter on your waist and check again. * Your pedometer may give inaccurate results if you have had recent surgery or knee, leg, or foot problems. You may be favoring a leg or foot while walking. b)My pedometer has a clicking or loose part sound? Is it broken? No, a clicking or loose part sound is not an indicator of a broken pedometer. Every pedometer has an arm or pendulum inside of it. This is what counts the steps. The clicking noise that can be heard when the pedometer is shaken (or when you are walking) is the pendulum. c)The reset button will not work. The pendulum inside the pedometer is linked to the step counting device. The pendulum may become immobile from time to time, and this can prevent the reset button on the step counter from doing its job. If pressing the reset button a few times does not clear the display, here is what you can do to release the pendulum: * Give the pedometer a few gentle shakes while keeping the reset button held down. This un-sticks the pendulum. * Release the button. If the display has not cleared, press and release the button one more time. * If the display does not reset after trying this once or twice, call Customer Service.
