I am trying to get 5,000 steps in daily. My pedometer was accurate I thought, but then I noticed some discrepancies. I noticed it would click when I made a step and I think this is want it is supposed to do. When I was around the house it seem to work find, I had it clipped to the waist of my panties. When I went to work and had it clipped to the waist of my pants.....then the problems began. Because I am a nurse I have to carry many things in my pockets and I think they interfered they interfered with the 'clicking' and I was not getting an accurate reading. Does anybody have any suggestions? I think I need a different type of pedometer. I only paid 11.99 for it. Also does it work if I sit in the chair and do some steps (I know I should be standing but sometimes I am sO tired at the end of the day and I still have gotten my 5,000 steps in)?
