I have the fitbit flex-wear it all day, tracks steps and it records even my sleep! I love it! It is a bracelet so it won't fall off or get washed by accident if it is still in a pocket or attached to clothes! It syncs with SP and works really good with the new tracker on SP! Thanks Mel for the information! Would be useful for those teams and having those activities that you don't have miles for like cleaning, etc.

OH I know . . . I went thru several brands myself. I just need something SIMPLE! I have a Sportsline that counts steps, miles/km, and kcals. It automatically re-sets @ midnight, which I like. But I take it off before bedtime and keep it in the bathroom so I am sure to put it on the next morning.
Funny story . . . I wore it to bed one night and it registered steps! LOL I know I didn't sleep walk, but must have had an active dream!

I had a spate on pedometers a while back now and have some here. I remember to put them on sometimes, but still can't find THE one that is worth using all the time. I don't think pedometers like me very much.
I know they help a lot of people, and all good! I never knock anything that helps!!
Just thought this guide would be handy for those who are in 'walking teams'. Like you have to travel so many miles to get to a specific point in the journey, and it's recorded by the exercise you complete. Makes it so much easier if you know how many miles you've travelled if you exercise for a certain length of time.
1. A basketball game lasted 1 hour, but total minutes played throughout the game were 25; record 3 miles for this activity. 2. Downhill skiing for 6 hours, but the actual time skiing, at moderate pace, not including riding on the lifts, was 2 hours; record 12 miles for this activity. 3. Walking for 30 minutes and walked 2 miles; record 2 miles for this activity. 4. Biking is a 3:1 ratio ie. record 1 mile for every 3 miles biked.
