Stride length Galaxy Fit3 (SM-R390)

In general, for workout 'walking' (no GPS), activity trackers measure the number of steps, and from that calculate the distance travelled using the stride length. The stride length is a fixed value, depending on e.g. body height.

For me it turns out that the default stride length used by activity trackers is far too low. Thus the distance travelled is too low.
Some manufacturers (e.g. Garmin) provide an option to manually set or calibrate the stride length.

So here's my question: for the Samsung Galaxy Fit3, for workout 'walking', is there a way to manually set or calibrate the stride length?

(From Samsung Community, it looks like that this issue has recently been addressed for other Samsung watches such as Galaxy Watch 5, see e.g. https://eu.community.samsung.com/t5/wearables/set-or-adjust-stride-length-to-track-treadmill-runs-mo...

I just switched from FitBit to Galaxy Watch 6. I used to average 14-15k steps a day but now I don't get to half of that number. There should be a way to account for my long stride. Or there should be some one in your development department working on this. I am 6'3" so the numbers don't add up.
