Great bit of kit
on 22 December 2011
I got this to motivate me during the long winter. After a day at work I tend to crash in front of the TV and it certainly is helping. My target is the coveted 10000 steps a day.
But before I get into all that, what about the pedometer. It arrived very quickly. I found it a little fiddly to get working. I had to take the back off and re-seat the battery. A minor inconvenience, and that is the only complaint I have. Set up, once it's on, is a breeze.
The first day I set my baseline number of steps. I didn't want to overdo it, so my first week I have been gradually trying to improve on the baseline count. I have succeeded so far, except for Sunday (lazy day), but haven't yet managed the 10000 mark.
It does all the things it says in the description, and I have had no problems with the clip highlighted by some reviewers. It has stayed secure and I am fairly active at work, moving from sitting to standing frequently and some bending.
I have had pedometers before that if you shake them clock up a few more steps. Not this one and this seems by far the most accurate and hard to fool. You only get credit when you walk!
The price too is excellent. I certainly would not have paid the suggested retail of £20, but at £9 with free delivery for a bit of kit this good, it's a bargain!
