What Functions to Look For in a Pedometer

pedometerThink about what you want to accomplish.  Do you want to be more active? Then you probably want to track your steps and activity time.  Do you want to lose weight? You can accomplish that by tracking steps and activity time as well but you could add in Calories Burned.  Remember that there is a balance between caloric intake and activity if you want to lose weight.   Mr. Pedometer calls it  “Eat Right, Move More”.  You can add distance, some have GPS, alarms, and some even talk.  Deciding what you want to achieve will help you decide what type of pedometer you want to wear.

Look for Warranties and Battery Life. You want to purchase a pedometer that will last and that can be fixed or replaced is there is a problem.  Be sure to check out what the warranty is before you spend your money.  another important item to look at is the expected battery life.  Look for a pedometer that has a good warranty and a battery that will last at least a year if not longer.  Selecting a pedometer that will go into “sleep” mode when it is inactive will make your battery last longer.
