I lost my pedometer when it was clipped on my pocket. I bought the step counter from the sparkstore and carry it in my pocket but the reset button is so touchy it gets bumped and resets so I never know how many steps I've walked.
I'VE BEEN DOING 15 MINUTES IS 2000 STEPS AND ONE HOUR OF WALKING IS 10,000 STEPS..I WALK FAST,JOG. I GOT TRIED OF COUNTING SO I LOOK AT WATCH AND AT 1000 IT WAS SEVEN AND HALF MINUTES AND COUNTED AGAIN SAME SO FOR ME THIS IS HOW I DO IT....

I love my pedometer. I just got an average one. Not cheap but not the most expensive. It adjusts to the stride of the person wearing it. And I use the 2000 steps is one mile. Doesn't matter about stride as far as I can see. It is a good rule of thumb.

Hi, I heard from the pedometer challenge group I am with, that a mile is aproximately 2000 steps. Now, if you walk with shorter steps then it may be more like 23-23 hundred. So I just guess that since I walk the small dog I have that it is more like 2400 at times but when I do the treadmill or walk alone, I can get the 2000 because I can stride better. (even though I am only 5'1" tall)
You can also go to the tracker that tells you how many miles you went and trace your aproximate path that you walk on the map. Then you will know how long your walk was and how long it took and get the mph.
There's another option available on the Fitness Tracker now. It's called 'Mileage Tracking' -- you input the minutes you walk and the distance you cover. No need to have these 20 min/mile or 15 min/mile conversions to figure out.
I don't know how you'd do walking in the snow, though...

How do you track your walking? I don't understand this 20 min/mile or 8 min/mile......
I want to track my walking some days if I am working its 20 minutes, some days if i take the dog its 15 minutes....How do I put that in tracking my fitness?
Also how do you track it if you had to walk through snow I know you definalty burn more calories when you have to work the muscles harder to get through the snow drifts so how am I spose to track that resistance?
LOL why does this have to be so complicated LOL
