YOUR PEDOMETER

You may have a few questions about pedometers, this is where you will find some more information.
 
INFORMATION ON THE ACCUSPLIT PEDOMETER
People tend to over-estimate their level of activity. The Accusplit activity pedometer provides and accurate step activity reading throughout the day. With a little extra effort and planning you can be life-style healthy without a single step into the gym or onto a track (although those are also good places to be active).

You derive excellent benefits if you do concentrated, aerobic walking (3 - 4 mph/ 15 - 20 minutes per mile) in 10-minute increments three times each day. Increasing your current activity level just a little helps to improve your health when you make it part of your daily lifestyle. They key to health and quality of life is making activity part of your lifestyle in the same way brushing your teeth is an integrated activity in your healthy lifestyle.

HOW TO USE YOUR PEDOMETER

  • Wear your pedometer on your waistband, 2 - 4 inches either side of your hip bone
  • Take 100 steps to check accuracy (it should register between 90 - 110 steps)
  • Wear your pedometer all day, except when bathing or swimming (it is not waterproof)
  • Take off your pedometer when you retire for the night


    HOW TO RESET YOUR PEDOMETER
    Press the RESET button for 3 seconds and release (All LCDisplay segments will be ON and then OFF). Press the RESET button again to turn it ON.


    WHAT IF MY PEDOMETER SEEMS INACCURATE?
    For best results, clip the pedometer on your waistband, 2-4 inches either side of your hop bone.  It is important to insure that the case is positioned straight up and down. If the pedometer is tilted, your step count may be under-recorded because the pedometer's pendulum function is not free to swing properly.

    WHAT ACTIVITIES DOES THE PEDOMETER NOT REGISTER?
    Pedometers will not register some activities.  However, our creative team at EDIS Computers has developed an equivalency program so you can log in other fitness and recreational activities like biking, swimming or golf.  This program will automatically calculate the number of steps and move you along the map. 


    HOW MANY STEPS IN A KM?
    The Steps Out program considers an average step to be 0.762 meters (this equals a 2.5 foot stride) Therefore, 1 kilometer = 1,320 Steps.

    If you have longer legs and/or a wider gait, you will actually be making more distance than the Step Update program shows. If you have shorter legs and/or a narrower gait, you will actually be making less distance than the Step Update program shows. Either way, don't sweat the distance! The point of Steps Out is to get you walking and promote overall health. It is more important how hard and long you work, not how far you go.


    BATTERY REPLACEMENT
    All pedometers come with a new battery which should last for one year.  When the LCDisplay dims, replace the battery with an LR-44 or equivalent.

  • Use a coin to "pop open" the case
  • Replace battery with "+" up
  • Snap case parts together
  • Press the RESET button to turn ON


    PEDOMETER WARRANTY
    Depending on what pedometer you received - most of the pedometers have a 1 year warranty.
