Nike+ FuelBand Versus Jawbone Up

I'm in the process of testing out both the Nike+ FuelBand and the Jawbone Up. In my testing I've discovered an enormous disparity between steps counting. Curious if anyone knows why on my morning walk with my dog (about an hour) the number of steps I took on the Jawbone number 8000 versus Nike's 4000.

In my testing I found the Nike Fuel band to significantly undercounts steps, you can see the results of my tests comparing 28 days of steps with the Fitbit, Jawbone Up and Nike FuelBand here: getgrok.in­/142S17c

Have you tried calibrating the up? I know with my Fitbit I can set a calibrate option and do X amount of steps.

Truth be told I didn't know that was an option. I'll look into that. Thanks.

Did a little research using my usual dog walking route and googlemaps, Jawbone Up is actually more accurate than the Nike+ FuelBand which is unfortunately under-counting my steps.
