I returned my Flex. I walked a track that was 2.6 miles and only got credit for less than 1.5 :(
Not sure why it was so far off, but I do know it wasn't worth the cost. Oh well, live and learn and keep receipts.

I have a fitbit one - and actually counted out 100 steps and then checked and it was spot on. I love my fitbit one. :-)

I have read that the Body Media measure going up stairs and regular pedometers may not. I do not have any experience with it though.

I was pushing a cart through the store today wonder if it didn't register that. No swinging of the arm and all.

it may be how you set it up. I never had a body media. I have always done the fitbit or a pedometer.

My One and my cheap pedometer measure the same.

I got the new flex yesterday and decided to compare to see how close they might be. I put both on before bed and have worn them all day. They are over 1400 steps apart! The BM is showing the higher number. Any thoughts?
