Default Is the pedometer on the iPhone accurate?

I walk a lot to get exercise and my goal would be to walk 10 miles per day, three days per week. According to what I read, the average human being walks around 3 miles per hour, but I feel like I walk faster than that because I tend to walk fast because I'm always on the go. So assuming I walk 3 miles per hour, it should only take 3.5 hours to walk 10 miles, but sometimes I walk around that amount of time or longer and my iPhone is still showing me that I'm walking less than that.

For example, today I walked from 11am to 1pm. When I got home, my iPhone showed that I walked 5 miles. So around 3pm, I walked for another two more hours. When I got home at 5pm, my iPhone showed that my total miles walked for today was 9.2 miles.

I walked a total of 4 hours and am only showing 9.2 miles. That means I'm only walking 2.3 miles per hour. I can't be THAT slow.

I'm starting to question the accuracy of the iPhone and whether it might be worth getting an actual pedometer for more accurate results. But then again, maybe I am just a slow walker.

Is the pedometer on the iPhone accurate? Has anyone tried both an iPhone and an actual pedometer is test its accuracy?

Try using an app that tracks your walking with GPS. Then compare the two.
