I received this pedometer when I participated in a study researching geocaching and health and fitness. I was one of the few in SWAG (South Arlington Area Geocachers) who liked the pedometer we received. Others complained it was too sensitive, a feature I treasure.
I have a short stride (about 14 inches) and I overpronate. Most pedometers are unable to measure my steps with accuracy. This one did! I walked around the school, counting my steps. When I checked the pedometer, the number matched.
Devices which depend on GPS to measure distance don’t work when I’m in the classroom. While I may be walking around a lot, the distance I travel in the room is quite short. I can cross the room in only 11 steps while dodging desks and student paraphernalia. On testing days I prefer to use an old-fashioned pedometer.
I’m not a techno-geek. Too many buttons scare me. This has one friendly orange button for everything.
I have looked for pedometers by the same maker with no luck. It’s made out of hard plastic which means it will soon become brittle and break. I have the feeling it’s a cheap brand; maybe it only sells in bulk.
