    In below example, I am calculating the distance between center of Mumbai City to Pune. Using geolocation we get current location and monitor it using the watch position method. On this type we will be calculating the distance between starting position I have selected (center of Mumbai City ) and current position or end point/position (Pune).

    function distanceFrom(points) {
        var lat1 = points.lat1;
        var radianLat1 = lat1 * (Math.PI / 180);
        var lng1 = points.lng1;
        var radianLng1 = lng1 * (Math.PI / 180);
        var lat2 = points.lat2;
        var radianLat2 = lat2 * (Math.PI / 180);
        var lng2 = points.lng2;
        var radianLng2 = lng2 * (Math.PI / 180);
        var earth_radius = 3959; // or 6371 for kilometers
        var diffLat = (radianLat1 - radianLat2);
        var diffLng = (radianLng1 - radianLng2);
        var sinLat = Math.sin(diffLat / 2);
        var sinLng = Math.sin(diffLng / 2);
        var a = Math.pow(sinLat, 2.0) + Math.cos(radianLat1) * Math.cos(radianLat2) * Math.pow(sinLng, 2.0);
        var distance = earth_radius * 2 * Math.asin(Math.min(1, Math.sqrt(a)));
        return distance.toFixed(3);
    }
    
    var distance = distanceFrom({
        // City Mumbai
        'lat1': 40.713955826286046,
        'lng1': -74.00665283203125,
        // City Pune
        'lat2': 39.952335,
        'lng2': -75.163789
    });
