    I'm trying to use my Icon to keep track of my workouts and physical activities, but I find it unreliable.

    For example, today I went for a walk/run, and according to google maps, the distance I covered was about 4 miles, while the Icon reported a bit more than 5 miles on my workout. Is there an actual reason for that difference or the Icon is just unreliable for this?

    Thanks.

    Adjust your step distance. Default is based on your height, but your stride may vary.

    I guessed that after looking at the settings, but I just assumed that the distance was calculated using the GPS and not with the steps count, which is very unreliable since not all steps are the same. I walk fast with long strides, but for some reason the phone thought that I was running and calculated the distance using even longer strides.
