Is stride calculated or based on actual step count?

I just got a runner cardio last week. It shows a stride rate that seems much higher than I expected. Wondering how TT gets this statistic.

    It is based on your height and gender. They take an average stride length based on your height and multiply this by steps. It is pretty inaccurate in my experience and there is no way to manually update it. Since you just bought it last week I would take care with your buying decision considering TT has left the wearables market and is not producing any new devices (they are just selling out existing stock), and all development has stopped. If you are able, you may want to consider returning the device and going with another brand that is active in the sports watch market and intends to continue producing and supporting devices.

    I hope this helps answer your question. If so, please mark it as a solution so others can look for it if they have the same question.
