You can input your running and walking stride lengths to get a more accurate read.
To measure your stride length, please do the following:
Go to a track or somewhere that you know the exact distance of.
Count your steps as you walk across that distance, making sure you travel at least 20 steps.
Divide the total distance (in feet) taken by the number of steps to get your stride length.
Your running stride can be calculated the same way, only by running a known distance rather than walking.
To adjust your stride length on your Dashboard, please do the following:
Log into your Fitbit.com Dashboard.
Click on the gear icon in the upper right corner of your Dashboard and select "Settings".
You will see a field for Stride Length and Running Stride Length. From here, you can manually enter your personal stride length. If you leave these blank, your profile will estimate these values based on your height and gender.
Click the "Update Profile" button to save your changes. Note that a sync will be required to update your tracker with your new stride measurements.

If you are a runner, it doesn't matter how far or how fast. It doesn't matter if today is your first day or if you've been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run." J Bingham
