Pedometers

Postby Ally » Sun Nov 05, 2006 7:37 am

Hi guys I was just wondering with the pedometers, I know that they tell you how many steps you are doing, but do they also tell you how to convert that to kms? Just wondering before I jump into buying one as I think they are a great idea, but the conversion thing would be great to know just how far you are going each day.

The one I used to use had steps and kms. They way to work out the kms is you usually have to 'set' or prepare it by measuring your stride and then converting it to how many cms per stride so that each step is actually a certain amount of cms adding up to kms. My one had a set of instructions that took you through this process but I am not sure if all pedometers have this function. Mine has stopped working but I am hoping it is just the battery. :?

Ally I have the weight watchers one. Its my little friend I take it with me alot. Like Kim's it has steps and kms, it is also a stop watch and counts how many extra points I earn as I complete so many steps for the day.I can also add in my total points for the day as a reminder as I go..
I put in my weight and my stride which was I think walking 10 steps and dividing by 10 then I did power walk steps to get my power walk stide and divided it by 10.
so there is two modes normal walking and power walk.

It is a great motivater, I never go walking without it, its good to see progress as I walk an hour and see how much more I can walk in that time.... 8)
