If you would like to know about pedometers, and the uses and benefits of pedometers, you will find the information on this page of interest.
A pedometer’s basic function is to count steps, which is why it is also referred to as a “Step Counter”. Some pedometers can be calibrated to calculate distance, speed and the approximate number of calories burned, but these additional functions are still based on the step count. The instrument is usually attached to the belt or the waist-band and is sometimes secured with a safety strap.
A quality, physical activity monitor is a great way to track your activity patterns. Each time you check your pedometer, it motivates you to take extra steps. As you increase your daily step count, you will soon begin to notice real changes in your physical and mental state, with more energy, less stress and better sleeping patterns. Begin by simply recording the number of steps each day for a week. Put it on when you get up in the morning and wear it until bedtime. Keep a record of your daily steps. By the end of the week you will know your daily average. You might be surprised how many (or how few!) steps you get in each day.
