There are so many different pedometers available, that you may have trouble deciding which one to buy. Although there are also many extra bells and whistles to choose from, make sure the pedometer you buy has at least these basic features:
Is Accuracy Important?
It’s nice to have an accurate pedometer. If you’re really concerned about accuracy, you may want to read online pedometer reviews to see which ones get the highest ratings. You may also want to adjust where you attach the pedometer; they generally work best at the hip level. But remember, even if your pedometer tends to over or undercount, you will still be able to assess your relative progress.
