Of course Treadmill. The watch is only guessing from number of steps.

OK - but my question is: how do you get the gear fit2 to even say what the treadmill distance is? If I start my treadmill execercise on the device it gives me only duration, heart rate and calories. No steps or distance.

 

Are you not specifically starting a treadmill exercise and just letting the device count regular steps....?

I know this reply is a bit dated, but I find that If I am carrying my cell phone with a healh app (such as samsung health) linked to the fit2 that between the 2 you will get lot better readings. The Fit2 determines your steps by your arm swings. For instance is you go for a walk in freezing weather and keep your hands in your pocket it will say that you haven't gone anywhere, but your phone will record your steps (different algorithms).
