(Product Review) MeasuPro Automatic Smart Sensor 3D Pedometer Fitness Tracker with 30 Day Memory, Clip-On Holder, Lanyard and Large Display
The MeasuPro Automatic Smart Sensor 3D Pedometer Fitness Tracker with 30 Day Memory, Clip-On Holder, Lanyard and Large Display has many really great features, and I thought I would really love it. I wanted to get a pedometer to help me keep track of my walking in an effort to lose weight.
I found this pedometer difficult to set, only because the modes are in such a small font that I could not read them. I had trouble setting some of the things up because I couldn't really tell what mode I was in at times.
Once I finally got it set up, I started looking over the directions for use in the manual, and wasn't sure if this would work for me at all. It says that it may not record your steps if you walk irregularly or very slowly, or if you are wearing sandals, among other things. This means that it probably isn't going to measure a good amount of steps that I take in a day.
Think about it... How even are your steps when walking a dog? Do you ever start and stop again while walking the dog? What about grocery shopping? My steps in the grocery store are only going to count if I don't stop to pick up any groceries, and if nobody blocks my path so I can keep walking steadily...
I have tested it on a few very short walks. It counted 65 steps to let my dog outside, but did not count the steps I took to the other end of the house. Perhaps I walked faster when she wanted to go outside, and it may not have counted the slower steps while I walked to the bathroom myself? It did count the steps when I came back from the bathroom though, so I'm still trying to determine what it and is not being counted. I know that it is counting at least some of my activity, and probably would track it better if I were a bit more steady with my walking. I am still trying to determine just how accurate it is.
I will continue to test this before making my final recommendation, but for now I still think it would be good for those who might walk regular walks and try to keep track. Even for me, it is better than trying to count my steps without a pedometer. Once I get it figured out a bit better, I might get a bit more accuracy out of it for my own walking too.
