The number of “steps” calculated and displayed on your Shine is approximately twice the number of actual “steps” that you have taken. This is because Shine interprets each swinging motion as two leg movements, left and right steps taken simultaneously, and therefore automatically doubles the count.
Normal walking requires you to perform more “work” compared to “HOVR Walking,” because with normal walking you are carrying your body-weight. Therefore, to account for this, you will need to multiply the displayed caloric value on your Shine by 0.56.
