Pedometers or Digital Watches for Steps Counting
This is a very interesting topic because so many people are health-conscious. Most of the people want to keep the records of how many steps they covered in a day.
The possible devices available in the market like:
- Apps in mobile phones.
First I have tried the apps on smart mobile phones, but none of these apps were correct. The figures were different from different apps. As I know these apps just count steps by just the motion. If you traveling in a jeep and have lots of jumps, you will find your steps in thousands.
Then I have tried the smartwatches for counting the steps and have the same problem. I have tried various watches by the recommendation of the Amazon, and various websites, and have the same issue.
By google research, a pedometer was suggested. I bought the three pedometers from amazon. I put all three in my pockets and starting counting after midnight when all three were zero. Again check the count on all three and found:
- One of the pedometers showed steps in 1450.
- One of the pedometers showed steps in 2640.
- One of the pedometers showed steps in 1860.
Now to whom I should believe? I know these pedometers also detect your motion. So none of these is 100% accurate.
My conclusion is that all these digital devices give you a rough idea about your steps activity during the day.
