    I hate the gym but love to walk, so I decided to incorporate a lot more walking into my day in order to burn more calories. (i.e., walking to the market instead of driving, taking walks on my lunch break, walking around the mall a few extra times when I go shopping, etc.)

    This is a great pedometer to use in that way. You can just keep it in your pocket or wear it around your neck all day without having to think about it, because it automatically senses movement and turns itself on and off accordingly. It measures your accumulated daily steps, distance, calories burned, and actual walking time throughout the day. So if you wear it all day, you get a pretty good idea of how active you've been. It also stores your stats for the past 7 days, which is handy if you're keeping an exercise journal.

    For weight loss, one thing to keep in mind is that your calorie burn rate depends on metabolism and how much you get your heart rate up when you exercise. The pedometer has no idea how hard you're really exercising, so its calories burned stat is just an estimate. If you're measuring every time you get up from your desk to go the copy machine or get a cup of coffee, the pedometer's calorie stats are probably going to be overly generous. If you run 10 miles every morning, that estimate will probably be too low. You really need to be realistic with yourself about where you fit in that spectrum.

    My only negative comment about the pedometer itself is that once you set it up with all your information (time, stride length, weight), it's kind of a pain to change it. People who are on a weight loss program will want to update their weight fairly frequently in order to get a more accurate estimate of calories burned. And most people have a different stride length for walking vs. running or jogging. So I do wish it were a little quicker and easier to change those settings.

    Otherwise, I like it a lot. Short of upgrading to something with a heart rate monitor or GPS, I can't imagine a reason to buy something else.

    Does not keep a 7 day total

    I returned the first device I bought because I wanted to be able to look at the 7 day total and the total did not maintain a running total of only the last 7 days. Instead, it just kept up adding up all the steps ever measured. Also, the accrued time in activity never makes any sense. Sometimes it says I walked 6 miles in five minutes. When I returned the device for a replacement-at 39 dollars it should work as advertized- the replacement made the same errors. The staff at the store could not tell me if I was using it correctly.

      Comments about SmartStep™ Pedometer:

      I wanted a simple pedometer to wear each day to insure that I was walking enough. This does the trick! There are other functions on it, however, that I find not so easy to program.

      I wish it had a clip on it because I don't always want to use the lanyard when in business clothes and my pants don't always have a pocket.

        Comments about SmartStep™ Pedometer:

        I like this product so much that I just bought my third one. After 2 years of reliable use, I lost my first one. I keep it in my pocket all day long so I can track the total daily mileage that I walk. I tested it several times for accuracy and found it to be the most accurate pedometer that I have ever used. I just ruined my second one when I forgot it was in my cargo pocket and went wading across a stream. It has basic water resistance from light rain and sweat, but it couldn't handle being submerged for several minutes. I track my mileage in a spreadsheet. The pedometer encourages me to walk a little extra at the end of the day if I'm below my average. I bought my sister one and she loves it also.

          Love this because it will count steps while hanging from the enclosed lanyard or I can unclip it and put it in my pocket. This keeps me motivated to complete my 10,000 steps a day!

            Comments about SmartStep™ Pedometer:

            I am pleased to have this pedometer. My one complaint is that I keep it in my pocket and lock it to prevent accidental resetting because of contact with other things in my pocket. I have discovered that the device automatically unlocks itself when the date changes at midnight. This is quite annoying since I have to remember to relock it in the morning or risk an inadvertant reset.

                I put it in my pocket when I dress in the am and take it out at night. I check my steps throughout the day to see if I need to take an extra walk at night to increase the number of steps for the day. Be sure to take it out of your pocket at night because I have put a previous one through the wash. I tried another one but this is so easy to use so I just ordered another one from Brookstone. I love it!

                  Comments about SmartStep™ Pedometer:

                  I got tired of purchasing cheaply made pedometers that quickly break. So far I have been pleased with the quality and accuracy of this product. I do wish that it had a clip so that it could attach to the waistband. The attachable lanyard is a nice feature and it still seems to keep accurate count, but unless I tuck it into my clothes, it bounces around when you're moving. Other than that, I have been very happy with the pedometer.
