Welcome to Pedometer.com!

Ron Sutton, aka Mr. Pedometer, is one of the country’s premier experts on pedometers and pedometer accuracy. In 1987 he became the first American to hold an accuracy patent for pedometers and in 1991 became the patent holder of the best accuracy algorithm for pedometers. So if you are looking for accuracy, you have come to the right place.

Pedometer.com is where you will find all the information you need to choose the right pedometer for your lifestyle.  You will also find information that will explain how to wear your pedometer to get the most accurate reading because after all, isn’t that why we wear a pedometer in the first place?  We want an accurate step count.

Pedometers go by several different names but there is no need to be confused.  Pedometers, step counters, activity trackers, accelerometer pedometers, wearables, are all types of pedometers.  Most pedometers track steps and then add other options such as activity time, memory, distance, calories burned, clock, alarm etc.

Bottom line, if you are going to spend the money to track your steps, you want accuracy. If you don’t have an accurate pedometer, you have wasted your time and money.

Best of all is if you have questions, we are here to answer them. Send us an email with your questions to info@Pedometer.com.  We are here to help you be successful.

Mr. Pedometer, I know you encourage us all to walk frequently, but I am wondering, will that help those of us with high blood pressure?

This month’s AARP Bulletin reported that high blood pressure is just one of half a dozen ailments that can be improved by taking regular walks – but at different speeds and durations.

Here is an excerpt from the article by Sara Altshul, describing what walking can help:

Kidney transplant waiting lists becoming more common

Mr. Pedometer, one of my friends is on a waiting list for a kidney transplant. Is this very common?  And are there any ways to avoid such a health crisis?

Sad to say, kidney disease is on the rise, as reported in the Spry Living insert in the Sunday newspaper.  The article, by Lisa Mulcahy, reminded us that March is National Kidney Month.  A staggering 15 percent of the U.S. population has chronic kidney disease!  This is due largely to an increase in people with high blood pressure and/or diabetes, both of which are major risk factors.
