I am having a problem getting a good one. I bought one from a store and the counts are always off. I bought one from online and it is way to difficult for me and very hard to open the facing. I have an OMRON blood pressure machine so I will look for a pedometer.

I didn't do any walking yesterday or treadmill work. I had a lazy, mostly watch tv kinda day. OMG.. what a wake up call that was! After an entire day I had walked less than 3,000 steps!!

I try to get on my incline trainer for an hour or so every day, but I'll admit that I slack on it quite often so it's been a few times a week lately. Yesterdays pedometer results, even tho it was for a lazy day, showed me that I REALLY need to make the effort to move more and to get on that walking program more consistently!

I wear my pedometer all the time,even in BED just in case I walk in my sleep.
I'm often over 10,000 steps. Weekends 16,000 - 20,000.

I like the Omron it shows aerobic and total steps and seems to match up with milage very well and doesn't need fussing with to ensure counting the steps like some pedometers.

My pedometer records both total steps and "aerobic" steps which are ten or more minutes of continuous movement.

I wear it wake to sleep.

I wear my pedometer all the time, except for BED.
I put it on in the morning, and on a day I am going to work, clear it about 8 pm at night, then track my steps till I get home in the AM. OFTEN over 10,000 steps.

When off, I wear it morning till bedtime, and will not stip till I have 10,000 steps. Amazing how hard it is sometimes to get in my steps, yet, since I have been monitoring, I find I MOVE SO MUCH MORE!!!

I put mind on when I get out of bed in the AM-wear it until 8 PM and use that number for that day- I clear it and leave it on until bed. ( I don't want to have to come back to the computer late at night :) :) ) those last steps become part of the next day. emoticon

I just bought a pedometer! I'm not sure if I want to use it during my incline training/treadmill work tho. I was kind of thinking that maybe I should use it separate and try to aim for 10,000 steps that are additional to my actual exercise steps. How does everyone here use theirs?
