Ruth C Step 1: 5000 Steps in 1 Day Challenge

Contributorgold 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 Step 1: 5000 Steps in 1 Day Challenge

Contributorgold 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.

It has an automatic assumed stride length based on your height, but you can change this to suit yourself. It suggests walking 10 steps then measuring and dividing by 10 to get average stride length. I haven't changed the stride length yet, need to measure properly later, and then I can judge the accuracy better. It doesn't have to be clipped on to waist band, you can just put it in pocket or dangle around neck on a lanyard (not supplied). It's nice and neat in size, and it shows steps, km, calories burnt and fat burn (you have to enter weight and height). You can also press a button and it will record details for a certain event, say you were going for a proper walk rather than just doing day to day stuff, it will add it to total, but you can see it separately as well.

Karin S and Dave W encouraged this.

Karin I test drove this on a walk this evening, and I was quite impressed. I walked downhill (street not mountain!) along the sand and back uphill, and it seemed able to register accurately for all conditions with me holding it in the palm of my hand, but slanting downwards. I did a 100 step check, and it came up as 100 step on pedometer. I was going to alter the stride but I'm not going to bother now. I'm not saying it's going to be 100% accurate but it's good enough for me to trust. It doesn't show the first 4 seconds walking unless you walk more than 4 seconds and then it counts.

Karin S Step 1: 5000 Steps in 1 Day Challenge

Contributorgold 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.

Mine gets very confused by cycling, so I keep track of its count before and after... Also tends to start counting after several steps, so my trips to the fridge are never recorded. :)

We have such bumpy roads in Tallinn, that my pedometer counted loads of steps while riding a bus :D

Lavinia I encouraged this.

:)) Sorry I laughed! Just realized it may be the bumps in the road, too, that make my pedometer think it's time to work. :))
