Walking Style III at a glance
Did you know it is recommended that you should take at least 10,000 steps each and every day to stay healthy and help to prevent against a variety of health conditions? Do you know how many you take?
The Walking Style III allows you to see instantly how many steps you have taken each day and therefore how much exercise you are getting on a daily basis. The number of steps you take is converted into total distanced traveled in kilometres or miles. The Walking Style III also tells you how many calories you have burned off each day, giving you a push to walk a bit further and burn off more calories.
It is not always easy to find the motivation to get up and exercise, but a pedometer motivates you to incorporate exercise into every aspect of your life, by encouraging you to take the stairs instead of the lift, to walk rather than to drive or to go for a stroll to achieve your daily step goal. With a bit of encouragement, you will soon see the steps (and calories) adding up.
The Walking Style III features an 'Action Mode', designed for when you want to measure a specific period of exercise, for instance, if you are going on a hike or you want to know how far your walk to work is. Action mode is activated by pushing the central button and stops when you press it again.
Monitor your progress
The seven-day memory allows you to review your weekly activity and calculate how many steps you have racked up over the week just by flicking through the previous days results.
Small, discrete and easy to use
The Walking Style III comes with a handy lanyard and clip so that you can attach it anywhere on a person; you don't have to clip it to your waistband. The Walking Style III can be carried in your pocket, clipped inside your bag or fixed anywhere else on a person and will still be able to detect your stride. It is small and discreet enough to take with you wherever you go.
The Walking Style III is simple to use, just manually program your height and stride length (average stride from the back of your heel at the front to the top of your big toe on the rear foot) and you are ready to go.

This neat little device is very simple to set up, but it pays to have some vital statistics already written down so that you can enter them when you set it up. You enter the time, your weight in kg, your height in cm and also your stride length in cm, which can be easily calculated by referring to the instruction booklet.
As well as telling the time, this device has a mode toggle that will display steps taken so far, the distance travelled in km, the calories burned in kcal and the fat burned in grammes. It can also store specific sessions that you can record from start to finish, which is very handy to compare different activities.
In all of my walks, I have found this device to be quite accurate indeed and I at last feel that I can rely on a pedometer to give me a pretty accurate estimate of how much walking I am doing and the likely benefit to my health. Especially useful is the feature that estimates the calories, as I like to have an idea of how my walks add up over the week and which ones are paying off better than others.
Switching the unit on for the first time (or after depressing the set button on the rear) you are required to set up your profile ie height, weight, stride length etc once you have done this the unit is ready to use. The step counter features the following functions: current time of day, step count, distance covered, calories consumed, fat burned. The display is large enough and the information clearly and easily readable and the buttons are large enough I believe even for larger fingers to easily operate. There is also a memory function which allows you to store upto 7 days worth of data, for instant recall. The unit utilises a clever sleep function whereby after 5 minutes if no button is pressed the display goes off but the unit continues to operate to conserve battery life.
The unit is purposely aimed at walking for exercise although I have used it just as well for running/jogging by setting a suitable stride length. Another quality Omron health oriented product!
The detailed enough instruction manual comes in the following languages: English, French, German,Italian, Spanish, Dutch Russian & Arabic.
Pros: Small size, good sized buttons, simple to operate, clear display.
Cons: No neck strap included.
The first thing that struck me upon opening the package was how much smaller this model is, it's approximately 6cm by 3.5cm and only about half a cm thick, so fits beautifully into a jeans pocket. The place at the base of the pedometer where the lanyard attaches swivels round, the manufacturers provide a short lanyard with a clip on it which is very convenient for attaching to belt loops on trousers, the pedometer could easily be used around one's neck if this was substituted for a long lanyard, however.
Unlike with my previous model, the Walking Style III Pedometer's screen does not stay on all the time, it goes blank after a short while and you have to press a button to reawaken it. I wasn't all that keen on this at first, but the difference this makes to battery life is quite striking - I have been using it on the same battery for almost four months now.
As with all the Omron pedometers, the step counting is very accurate (not perfect, obviously, but their motion sensors are radically better than conventional 'pendulum' pedometers), and it counts steps just as well tossed into a pocket or bag as it does if carefully clipped in an upright position onto your waistband.
Highly recommended item. Definitely worth paying a little extra for one of these quality pedometers.
