Why use a Pedometer?
A quality, physical activity monitor like the Yamax Digi-Walker 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. If you are a regular weekend walker you can also use the pedometer to measure the number of steps in your longer walks.
Why choose the Yamax Digi-Walker?
Few pedometers can match the accuracy of the Yamax Digi-Walker pedometer. Scientific studies have consistently shown the Digi-Walker to be one of the most accurate pedometers in the world. What this means in practice is that if you put the instrument on your belt in the correct position and walk 100 steps, it will register exactly 100 steps (give or take 1 step). The reason is that this pedometer has an “anti-bounce mechanism”. Hence if you take a strong step, whilst other pedometers may measure two steps, the Digi-Walker only registers 1 step.
Scientists at leading research institutions – including the world renowned Cooper Aerobics Centre in Dallas, Texas – recommend Digi-Walker pedometers.
