The distance with walking with a watch does not match that of reality

When walking on a treadmill it can give you the exact distance you have gone because it knows the length of the belt and the speed of the belt and how fast you are traveling if or truly walking that time. 

I believe the Samsung watch does this through the number of steps it detects by the movement of the watch. However this is not accurate because people's legs may be different lengths even though that they're there height maybe the same. Somebody may have a longer torso, or longer legs. Perhaps the solution has something to do with measuring the inseam of the leg or measuring the stride length. However, this must be improved. There can be up to 40% error rate on the reality of what some are walking. For example the opposite can also be true somebody may have very long legs but a very short torso.

I'm not sure exactly how Samsung will fix this but it needs to as it's extremely inaccurate for many.
