3. Set your Stride Length
To set your walking and running stride length go to Web Dashboard>Account Settings>Personal Settings, underneath "Height").
To measure your stride length, Fitbit recommends going to somewhere with a known fixed distance. If you don't know the exact distance of any given stretch, instead lay out a rope of known length or extend a long measuring tape down a sidewalk. Count your steps as you walk that distance, making sure you travel at least 20 steps. Divide the total distance (in feet or meters) by the number of steps to get your stride length. Your running stride can be calculated the same way, only by running a known distance rather than walking. Fitbit uses your running stride for any
steps taken faster than 3.8 mph (6.1 kmh).

5. Floors Climbed = 10 ft elevation gain, whether on a mountain or staircase.
Finally, the altimeter uses atmospheric pressure to determine your height. Major weather systems can also bring swift changes in atmospheric pressure; It's rare, but you may notice that a major storm brings you some "bonus" flights. You can go in an edit those out with an activity record.

10. How to Update your Weekly Steps Goal
changing it is surprisingly counterintuitive. Here's how: Go to your main dashboard (original version dashboard, not the new, beta dashboard) and click on the "week" view. From there, hover over the weekly goal that shows up in the main part of the page, NOT the one in the upper right. Click on the word "edit" and update it. Now click on the "Day" view in the dashboard and edit the daily goal to be 1/7 of your weekly goal, and you're done!
