|Ozeri Razor Digital Pedometer|
I have used pedometers in the past and the basic function of counting steps is usually their only function. So that is what I was looking at first and foremost. To begin with, I found that while the intention of Ozeri is to provide a lot of measuring and tracking information to their customers, it can be somewhat hard to find this information. Setting it up initially was a bit of a problem. I simply couldn't do it so I enlisted my son (a real savvy tech guy that is also an engineer). After checking it out and pushing all the little buttons, he got the calendar set and it shows steps in a 24 hour period. So when I use it it counts my steps for that day. The next day (24 hours later) it has reset itself and is ready to count my steps again.
I discovered a little problem and that is if it is in the car while I'm driving to the gym or to work, somehow it "counts steps." A minor flaw and I figure it is because it is super sensitive.
The Ozeri pedometer clips onto a pocket or waistband easily and sturdily. I've worn it while pedaling the exercise bike, walking the treadmill, and while doing housework or working at the office. Steps are counted and I can see I still need to get a lot more in each day. Kind of humbling to know that I have not done as much as I really should in exercising. But perhaps the Ozeri Razor Pedometer will give me that gentle reminder push I need.
