Thanks for the warm thought. I kind of like the gym, so there's no doubt for me that it will be successful. I joined the Planet Fitness in Muhlenburg. I have friends who belong there, but haven't been able to coordinate schedules yet.
I wear him on my shoe as it is said to be most accurate attached securely to the laces. It can be worn on a belt, pocket, waistband or bra and it will still record steps. I have been wearing my Fitbit on my pocket as it can't be attached to the laces of my shoe.
From the FitLinxx website, "The Pebble activity tracker utilizes a 3-axis accelerometer and patented technology to measure patterns of motion, producing a unique waveform signature. It uses this signature in a series of intelligent algorithms that dynamically adjust based on the type of motion detected, providing accurate, verifiable activity data for users of all ages and activity levels. The device determines total steps, activity time and the individual’s speed, which is used to calculate distance and caloric burn. The Pebble’s intelligent algorithms are upgradeable, allowing for new and updated features to be added to the device.
Tracking Steps The device receives a signal from its accelerometer to determine your step time accuracy. Once your step time has been determined, it uses its patented methodology and industry-standard calculations to determine total number of steps. The Pebble activity tracker is also able to distinguish between walking, running and “moving” steps. This provides another layer of detail to the activity data that can be used in applications and programs."
