    Question: Can the Runtastic Pedometer sense if you walk over rough uneven terrain as compared to a level and even terrain and then adjust the stored step length accordingly for use to calculate the distance traveled using the recorded number of steps? The reason that I ask is because I observed an apparent anomaly on a recent walk. I earlier calibrated my step length over a ~10 km distance and replicated that measurement 3 times using a GPS for the true distance. It came to 0.82m/step over a total distance of 3x10 = 30km. I then subsequently walked that same route 12 times over some weeks. It is a level flat even route. If I then calculated back from the derived displayed distances on the Runtastic pedometer to see what step length had been used during the 12 times, it comes - as expected - to 0.82 m/ step each time. Since I repeated the walk over the exact route many times I calculated the standard deviation of the displayed set of steps counted for that route. It came to 2.1% of the mean distance, which is about on average of 260 steps over 12564 steps. This a very reproducible measurement with good precision. Yesterday though I walked a different difficult rough rocky route with sometimes steep up and down on a mountain side for ~8km. When I calculated back from the Runtastic displayed distance and the counted number of steps the step length for that walk it came out lower at 0.71m/step rather than the expected stored 0.82m/step. When I immediately thereafter checked my settings on the pedometer the set step length on the pedometer was still unchanged at 0.82m. When I then on the next day repeated the original route, on which I had calibrated my step length, the calculated step length again showed 0.82m/step as before for that route. Therefore the only perceived difference between the two routes is that the one route is flat and even (0.82m/step) and the other one rough, uneven ups and downs (0.71m/step). Could the 3D accelerometers somehow have sensed that my true step length on that rough terrain was actually shorter than my previously very reproducible value (0.72 vs 0.82)? If so, what is the algorithm to derive a step length different from the stored one? Below I copy in my Runtastic data as it was actually accumulated over 13 sessions over a number of weeks for the exact same even and level route of ~10km so that you can judge the reproducibilty of the recorded readings. As you can see the effective step length for these 13 sessions are very reproducibly midway between 0.82 and 0.83 m/step. The standard deviation of the number of steps of the various sessions displayed and the mean distance of 12,564 steps is 260 steps, which is quite reproducible being ~2%. The pedometer therefore seems to be operating very reliably over the fixed distance. However, the most recent session (indicated by 0 in the list) being over a rough and uneven terrain, calculates back to a step length of 0.71 m/step using the Runtastic displayed distance of 8.85km and 12,404 counted steps for that session rather than the expected 0.82 m/step. When I checked the stored step length it was still the same as before, i.e. 0.82m/step. This was confirmed when I subsequently walked the usual earlier ~12.5 level and even km route again. The above leads me to think that somehow the pedometer used an adjusted shorter step length for session 0 (rough route). It would be correct that my step length was somewhat shorter than before, but my big question is how did the pedometer come to use such a lower value and how does it derive that specific value of 0.71? An approximate measurement on Google Earth shows that the true distance on the rough terrain is actually even lower than the derived Runtastic value of 8.85km and that, if the counted number of steps of 12,404 are correct, that the effective step length actually should have been even lower than 0.71 m/step. This all for me boils down to how much faith can one put into the Runtastic derived distance? Below are the recorded data showing the displayed distance for each session, the recorded number of steps for that session and then my calculated step length for each session. Session 0 is the anomalous one that raises my question. 0 8.85 12,404 1 10.04 12,182 0.824 2 10.36 12,575 0.824 3 10.50 12,725 0.825 4 10.40 12,608 0.825 5 10.46 12,675 0.825 6 10.57 12,819 0.825 7 10.11 12,262 0.824 8 10.20 12,362 0.825 9 10.19 12,358 0.825 10 10.63 12,890 0.825 11 10.20 12,366 0.825 12 10.28 12,466 0.825 13 10.74 13,046 0.823 Mean distance: 10.36 Mean number of steps: 12,564.2 Mean step length: 0.825 m/step Respective standard deviations: s 0.213 260.30 0.001 % 2.1% 2.1% 0.067% Thank you.
