Band step count accuracy

Checking the step count after a day of wearing the band ( firmware) says 1,139 steps at 0.56 miles, which is way lower than my iPhone says and also way less than I would expect. As for expectations, I walk my dogs around a loop of streets which measure roughly 3/4 mile or so, which makes the 0.56 miles already suspect. The iPhone 7 Health app history has my dog walks (not full-day) at 2,000-2,300 steps, which sounds more accurate from my route measuring on Google Maps.
On the walks I generally have a leash in each hand and my phone is in a front jeans pocket.
