1. How to activate calibration for Apple Watch 5 from iPhone


One of the main alternatives that must be taken into account when measuring daily activity is, without a doubt, the fact that the clock is well configured so that it is possible to collect data of this type from it. This is why Apple Watch calibration will be used by previously enabling it on the iPhone.
Step 1

In the main screen of the phone we enter the "Settings" section.

Step 5

2. How to calibrate Apple Watch 5 to improve activity accuracy


After activating the calibration alternative, it will be necessary to make the following adjustments on the Apple Watch 5, for this the following procedure must be done:
Step 1

Put on your watch and go to a place where there is a good GPS signal and press on the "Training" application. This will be easily recognized as it is a green circle that has the silhouette of a man.

Note
This feature works for a model from the series 2, until the most recent, since if it is an earlier series it will be necessary that you have the iPhone at hand to operate GPS.

Step 2

Next you will see two silhouettes, one says "Walk" and another says "Run." Click on the one that suits us best, and in this case you must click on the three small horizontal points next to the alternative.

Step 3

As soon as the "Run" or "Walk" function is used, the Apple Watch 5 will automatically adjust the accelerometer to subsequently perform a stride analysis based on speed. This will indicate more precisely the calories consumed, as well as other functions of the activity.

3. How to see the number of steps of the Activity in Apple Watch 5


After performing the procedure for result improvements, you can check the number of steps in the Apple Watch 5.
Step 1

We press the central clock crown so that the applications found in it are shown, we just have to press on “Activity”.

You can also observe the history of the executed steps and activity from the iPhone, you should only perform the following steps:
Step 1

We will start by entering the "Activity" section directly on the iPhone.

Step 2

A calendar will appear that corresponds to the history of the Activity log, now you must select the day you want to see.

Step 3

Finally, a statistic will be shown with all the data of the selected day according to the activity carried out, when you slide to the bottom you can see the option “Steps” as well as the distance relationship.

In this way you can have a good calibration of the Apple Watch 5 to have a more accurate result of the steps taken at a specific distance, information that can be seen both on the watch and on the iPhone.
