I find the pedometer on my phone works well and logs about the same number of steps per walk as my fitbit
This is for people who would want to start a healthy lifestyle. You simply need to walk at least 5000 steps for 1 day. The objective is to start the habit of walking.

I have the up jawbone wrist band. I love it and feel its worth the money. It is expensive though. I also have my fitness pal and runs keeper apps, and find them to be useful.
Also any good Android apps for my phone that work?
Ruth C Didn't wear it a few times today, it registered over 5000 (including a family walk), but I suspect it wouldn't have gone over 6,000 if I'd had it on all day. Bit of a wake up call really, and I realise I need to move a darn sight more every day to get to the recommended 10,000 steps a day. On the plus side, at least now I know what to do to try and burn off more fat on a regular basis - move it, move it, move it!!
Ruth C Got a new fancy pants pedometer yesterday, and it registered five thousand and something yesterday but that was including a training session. I want to see how much I do on a normal non-training day, because I think I really need to up my activity level on those days, if I'm to get anywhere near 10,000 steps.
Mirja E Endomondo says my 5,8 km walk consisted of 8451 steps but that makes one step 70 cm and that is too long. So to recalculate it to say 60cm per step, I get 9667 steps :)
Estelle B encouraged this.
Karin S Just realized that the pedometer I have is counting total crab: I took 10 steps and it shows 17. Gadgets, here I come.
Why not ask for some advice from other Challenge takers, or read some of the Challenge guides first?OK, I'll keep working at it!
