How is Distance walked or ran calculated in the myPhonak app?

Calculation of Distance walked or ran
By estimating the step length derived from the acceleration magnitude, the Audéo Fit and Audéo Lumity can compute the Distance walked or ran by adding up all the step length estimates.
If a user has Lumity rechargeable or Audéo Paradise Fit hearing aids, they can increase distance accuracy by creating their Health profile, i.e., entering in the app height, weight, age and gender. Height and gender are used then to calculate distance.
