Those FitBits are pretty expensive aren't they? I only wanted something that would track my steps and maybe my calories burned. I have to be really careful about walking because I have bad knees, a balance problem, and neuropathy in my legs. Last year I was doing 3 miles, but I can't make that anymore.

on one of my early attempts at weight loss i measured a half mile in my car and then counted the steps. I was lucky because it was 1000 steps. I would walk 3 miles for 55 minutes and 6000 steps

I just bought one and it seems to do the trick. It was like $10 on Wish lol. Yes....even if it's something cheap from China, I can manage. It will sync to GoogleFit, so I can still get my stuff to work with Spark.

I will say that I was about to give up on getting the darn thing to charge before I figured it out haha.

Personally I have a FitBit and I know people who have the Garmin activity tracker. Either are good options, in my opinion and can be linked to spark. I know FitBit has a variety of price points but I am not sure about that with Garmin. You will probably pay more than that pedometer you got but I have been quite satisfied with my FitBit HR Charge 2.

I want to begin trying to get my 7,500 steps in every day, but need a pedometer to do that. I purchased one, but it wasn't very good, could never figure out how to set it. I know I need to spend more money for one. Could anyone suggest a good brand and tell me the correct way to set it?
