Good - get walking
on 7 November 2012
This is a very good pedometer. Easy too use and set up with daily goals that you determine yourself for steps, calories and distance.
I found it to be accurate. Having checked it several times the steps reading was only out by less than 10 over 300 to 400 steps. The unit is larger than any other I have seen therefore the display is clear and easy to read with a clock at the bottom. The display automatically zeros itself at midnight but all data is stored in the units memory. There is a memo function which recalls the data for the last 7 days for comparison. Data is stored for 42 days before it requires downloading. All data is in imperial units, I prefer the metric system but that is a not a criticism just a personal preference
You need to download the software from the Omron web site, then once set up it is easy to download data via the provided usb cable. The health management software stores all your data and can be viewed as daily, weekly, monthly or annual statistics and compares them with your daily targets.
Overall a good pedometer the best one I have tried. I only gave it 4 stars because the instruction manual is very basic for example there is a 'mode' button on the pedometer but no explanation of what it is for. Also the belt clip is a little weak as it easily dislodged particularly when sitting down. I ended up putting it in my pocket and it works equally well.
