*Ozeri Pedometer (RRP £19.99)
I was kindly send this *Ozeri Pedometer as myself and my partner like to do a lot of walking. Let me just say this is like no other pedometer I have ever used. I used to have one where you could just sit there all day shaking it and it would count as steps. It would even add on 10 just by picking it up and putting in your pocket which means the results were way off. This beauty however has so many features its crazy, here is a little run down:
- Records daily steps, stairs climbed, distance, calories burned and exercise time with the world’s most advanced Tri-Axis technology.
- 3D Sensor (X, Y, Z plane detection) provides superior accuracy in any position and unlike conventional pedometers, won’t miss steps.
- New Steps2Target feature tracks and calculates your steps toward your daily target and graphical displays your progress.
- Counts up to 1 million steps with built-in memory for 30 days of activity. Also features a Clock, Calendar & Sports Timer and Auto Sleep Mode technology.
Setting this up takes a good 5 minutes as you have to set your height, weight, daily goals, date, time and even length of step which you calculate by measuring the distance of ten steps (to insure accuracy) and dividing by 10 to get average step distance. The thing that really impressed me about this pedometer is that no matter how much you shake it, there will be no steps recored, it starts counting after 10 consistent steps (but still counts those 10) so no false steps and an accurate result.
The daily goal can be set at anything you like, the suggested amount is between 10 and 15,000 which works out to be about 1.5 – 2 miles depending on step distance. Its super easy to see how close you are to your goal of the day by looking on the left side of the screen at the little symbol showing your progress.
