I find a pedometer invaluable, they measure the number of steps you take a day. Research has shown these to be the most effective and useful fitness tool but they need to be accurate - a recent study in the British Medical Journal showed some pedometers have more than a 50% error rate. That means if you are taking 100 steps, some pedometers may be telling you you're doing anything between 50 - 150 steps!
I only work with my own range of pedometers, which have been shown to be 99% accurate in independent published studies* to be the most accurate at different speeds and over different terrain. We have 4 pedometers in our range, each with their own range of functions to fulfil your needs:
An excellent introductory pedometer counting steps. Ideal for those wanting to start monitoring their daily step take!
Essential for logging steps and tracking time. The best pedometer for those interested in fulfilling the Chief Medical Officer's recommended health targets of 30 minutes of moderate physical activity per day.
For those serious about their health, this one's for you! It not only allows you to measure steps and exercise time but also exercise intensity, recording your total number of daily moderate to vigorous physical activity and the number of bouts you achieve at that health giving intensity.
The perfect companion for managing weight loss, improving fitness and health. The calorie counting function is a major motivator to help keep you active.
