not strictly a pedometer,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Omron Walking Style II Pedometer (Sports)If you have recently begun running/jogging/exercising and wanted to calculate the distance and how fast you travel for specific 'runs', then this item is not for you. This is more of a daily 'step-counter', meaning it will note how many steps you take daily, but doesn't let you calculate the distance and speed you travel for say a 3 mile run. Instead, it only displays the time you ran 'aerobically', like 28m for instance, and how many 'aerobic' steps you took, like 3823 - it does automatically detect when you are running and not walking, however. All in all, I would say that this is specifically for people who only want to calculate daily steps intake, and is not a product for people who want to calucate distance/speed/time/calorie consumption and so forth for 'specific' runs or walks - there is no reset button other than a master reset at the back of the item.

davef is the only person I've seen anywhere who grasps that this pedometer is designed to record overall daily step counts only. For walkers and backpackers it lacks a very desirable feature: being able to record data for a specific walk (that's less than 24 hours in duration).
