How are steps sent to Fitbit calculated?

The steps sent to Fitbit are calculated by using the calories burnt and converting it to the walking equivalent steps it will take to burn those calories. This algorithm is controlled by Fitbit and we have no control on how they interpret our data. The data is shown in the Fitbit app under Exercise and is sent to the Fitbit app at roughly 10 minute intervals.
