  • I used one for a while, I don't know what kind it was I got it as part of a fitness kit. Of course it's not spot on but I figured all the extra "counts" make up for the steps I took during the day while I wasn't wearing it. But while walking it's pretty accurate. I tested by counting my steps and it showed the same number.

  • I really like them, when you get it go to You sign up and then track your steps on different trails. Like you can choose to "walk the iditarod trail" and how every many miles it is (I can't remember) you track your steps and that tracks it as if you took those steps on the trail. It was a great motivator for me.

      I was given one by my health director, but I can't remember what it's called. I bought one of the cheaper ones from Walmart and it only tracks every couple of steps, it was really crappy, so I recommend going into an actual sports store, or get one of the more expensive brands like Nike.
