Welcome to Omni Calculator's steps to km calculator, an indispensable friend of every avid walker! With our tool, you'll discover:

  • How to convert steps to km and km to steps;
  • How to estimate the stride length; and
  • How to calculate how many km you walked by steps.

🙋 Taking to walking with the aim of losing weight? We bet you'll be interested in the following tools:

Steps to km conversion

The quickest way is to use the method of average step. The average step length is:

  • 0.76 m for a man; and
  • 0.67 m for a woman.

Another way is to assume that the average step length is around 40% of the person's height. More precisely, the coefficient for each sex is 41.5% for men and 41.3% for women, which gives us the following formulas:

male step length = 0.415 × his height

female step length = 0.413 × her height

Once the stride length is known, to convert steps to km, it suffices to multiply it by the number of steps:

distance = step length × number of steps

For instance, for 10,000 steps, we get:

distance = step length × 10,000

So, if we know our walker is a man 1.76 m tall:

step length = 0.415 × 1.76 m = 0.73 m

and

distance = 0.73 m × 10,000 = 7300 m = 7.3 km

How to use this steps to km calculator

Omni's steps to km conversion calculator can use three methods to convert steps to km:

  1. If you want to get the result quickly, use the approximation based on the average step length method discussed in the previous section. Choose the walker's sex and input the number of steps, and the distance covered in km will immediately get computed and displayed at the bottom of our steps to km converter.

  2. Another, bit more precise method asks for the walker's height and sex and uses it to estimate your step length. To quench your curiosity, the estimated result is displayed by the steps to km calculator, along with the distance covered for the number of steps you specify.

  3. The last method is the most precise and gives you an exact number of kilometers you covered in a given number of steps. However, you must first measure your step length on your own and input it into the appropriate field of the tool.

💡 Are you more used to miles and feet and inches? Our steps to miles calculator covers this very topic, but from the imperial perspective!

km to steps conversion

This tool can also serve as a km to steps calculator. If you're wondering how many steps it takes to cover 1 km or any other distance, use our tool as usual, but input the distance and leave the number of steps empty. Our converter will fill it in for you!

If you want to perform this computation by hand, use the following km to steps conversion formula:

number of steps = distance / stride length

Assuming the stride length of 0.67 m (so the female version) and remembering that 1 km is 1000 m, we have

number of steps = 1000 / 0.67 = 1492.5

To get this result using Omni Calculator's steps to km calculator, just set the distance to 1 km, making sure that the female is being selected first. Can you work out on your own the answer we'd get for a male walker?
