I too, wear mine on my sock, and also found out that if I wear crew, not knee high, I have better accuracy.

Well I finally found mine after it had been missing for 3 weeks. I wear mine on my bra and will be keeping it in the drawer when I shower so the cat can't steal it again.

When I first got mine, I was anxious because I don't ever wear shoes in the house. I was taking it off my shoe and putting it on the front of my sock when I was at home. Now, I just wear it on the front of my sock because I was worried about wearing the clip out (I worry about a lot of silly things, haha), or forgetting to switch it to my sock, so I just stick with my sock now.
I wear crew length socks most of the time and it seems to catch all of my steps. Not so much if I wear knee length socks though.

On my shoe. I am generally wearing clogs or shoes with laces. When I am wearing a shoe that laces, I slip the clip under my laces. When I am in my clogs, I clip it to the top edge of my clog.

Right foot - clipped to bottom couple of laces. So far so good. I run approx 30 km per week as well as 10,000 steps on off run days. My biggest challenge seems to be remembering to clip to current footwear: alternate ideas for when barefoot were appreciated.

I wear it on my bra or sports bra, because I take a dance class where we are moving and shaking our bodies A LOT and our feet are not always moving. Also, might stomp one foot but not the other… Seems to be working, but as others mentioned, sometimes I have to write in what I did, because it doesn't pick up everything.

Walking the dog, for example I will stop, pick up a ball and pitch it… then run the field, stop and catch the dog. It's very active. That kind of activity and weights and dancing classes don't always show as continuous exercise, but I'm typically dripping wet and exhausted by rocking' workouts (planks for example, don't record).

Every achievement starts with the first step. Take a good step NOW!

I like to wear mine on my waist band. Haven't been brave enough to clip it on my shoe as I am always finding beat up places on my shoes from time to time and have no idea how it ever happened. Better safe than sorry. It works fine on the waist band.

When wearing shoes I put it on the laces but without shoes I just attach it to my sock and it seems to work just fine. At night I put it on the neck of my night shirt because I get up and go several times a night.

I normally wear mine on my right shoe through 3 sets of laces. Have never lost it but had a big scare at the gym one day. Then found out I hadn't transferred it to my gym shoes! DUH! However, come winter and my outdoor boots are too thick to put it on so I wear it on my undies waistband which works great.

On my pant waistband, which is particularly good for treadmill walking.

Just remember, pedometers often have problems of needing to be in one place or another to best capture pedometer "ticks" ... and sometimes, a shoe might not strike a walking surface enough to register steps. So, take everything into account.

Depending on what I am doing has to do where I wear it. I run for 30 minutes in the pool twice a week and wearing in on the bra area seems to work best. I go to Zumba once a week for an hour, I have tried the bra and top of my shoe but found that I am not always stepping which interferes with the 10 minute "workout". I have recently moved it to my waist and it seems to calibrate better there. You may not be moving your feet but you are moving your waist and upper body. This past workout did fall under 61 minutes in the "workout" category. When not excising I wear it attached to my bra. emoticon

On my right outside wrist. Tried shoe, bra, center bra. Better reading and closer to heart monitor worn on other wrist. Heart monitor provides steps, calories,miles and heart rate.

SPAT and Heart Monitor steps are closer. I want to calibrate the SPAT using the tool.

SFISHER333, how clever! I could do that! I made myself a paracord ankle bracelet last summer. I could come up with something similar that could take the Spark.

I know SparkPeople recommends wearing the Spark on one's shoe. It just doesn't work for all of us.

When I wear shoes with laces, it is connected to the laces closest to the toes. When I wear clogs, sandals or dress shoes, I clip it to the inside of my pants or skirt. When I'm in water aerobics (five days a week) I attach it to my water shoes with the elastic tie. I wrap the tie around the SPAT and under the clasp several times, and I have never lost it in the pool. I too have accidentally washed my.

I wear it tied into the shoelaces on the top of my left sneaker. I wear my pedometer tied into the laces on the right. I am interested in how close the two are in steps at the end of my day. So far my spark seems to catch more steps most of the time.

I'm surprised at all the answers. At a guess it looks like the shoe and sock win out. I didn't walk much today and my tracker says I did 1273 steps and the other pedometer 2464. I wore it on my shoe first and my sock later. I'll have to try again tomorrow.

I wear it on my ankle socks. I have a strange walk and kick things off my shoes. Putting it on my socks, keeps it under the tongue of the shoe where I can't kick it.

The majority of the time, I wear it on my left hip. I don't often wear lace up shoes, and I like to wear my Spark every day.

If I am taking a real walk, I usually wear sneakers, and then I might wear it on my shoelaces, if I remember.

My Shoe laces. I've never had it slip and it seems to do fine in the snow. If i'm not wearing shoes I pop it on my hip but the feet are definitely the most accurate

This is my first full day of wearing my Spark. I also wore my Wt. Watcher's pedometer. At the end of the day the Spark recorded 2352 steps, the other pedometer 4955. That is quite a difference! Tomorrow I will try wearing the Spark on my sock and see if that makes a difference. I wore the Spark on the waistband of my slacks near my right hip.

When I'm at home I wear it on my ankle socks. If I'm working out I wear it on my shoe laces, if I'm outside playing in the snow I wear it on my waist because it isn't comfortable inside my boot.

Waistband at my left hip. Seems to track well unless I am strength training--then I'm not necessarily taking steps so I manually enter that workout

I wear mine on the top of my socks. When it gets sandal weather I'm not sure what I'll do. It seems to track the best there. I've also tried the bra but it doesn't seem to track as well.

On my shoe, no matter what I'm wearing. If I have shoes with laces that is the best place. When I wore my dress shoes I tried my bra and my waist but neither tracked that well so I started clipping it up by the toe or on the side of my boot and it seems to still track very well.

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.
When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And
maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

I know I stated this below, but I clip mine to the top of my sock. I wear ankle socks, and I have never had a problem with the SPAT coming off or even loose, and it seems to track my movement very well here!

On my bra, as it seems to be the only place that works. However, after today, I'm not so sure. It didn't track my little walk that I had this AM and even though I get over 10,000 steps a day, the tracker doesn't even show half the light lit. And, yes I just changed the battery!

Most of the time I wear it clipped to my pants pocket which works really well. If I'm wearing a dress I wear it clipped to my bra. My suit skirt doesn't have a pocket so I clip it to the waist band. When swimming I attach it to my wrist with 4 ponytail holders. The only time I've worn it on my shoe was one time when I was using the elliptical and recumbent bike. If I'm bumming around the apartment in pajamas that don't have pockets I'll clip it on the bottom of the shirt at my left hip.

This has been tricky for me because I work in an office and so the type of shoes I wear wouldn't allow for me to wear the tracker on them. So I tried clipping it to the waist band of my skirts, but that wasn't working very well because skirts hit me at different places and I just wasn't getting the accurate amount of steps. So finally my solution: on the waistband of my underwear! I haven't seen anyone else mention this, but it works like a charm. Right at my hipbone, I'll clip it on, so no matter what I'm wearing it is tracking me. And it's been very accurate!

It definitely picks up my steps best when attached to my sneaker or clipped on my sock, but like I said, in an office environment athletic shoes are just not an option. Good luck!

On the laces on my right shoe with clip side up and open part of clip toward the toe. I also have a leash on it which is tied double thru the clip before attaching to shoe. The leash is anchored to the straight across lace at the toe of the shoe. When this is not possible, I wear at the side of the waist with the leash attached.

Most of the time its on my slipper while using the treadmill or doing aerobics its on my shoe laces but if I go out of the house (doesn't happen often with this weather) its tucked into the watch pocket of my jeans with the clip pointing OUT. I lost it once but my eagle eyed hubby found it in the parking lot a few cars up from ours. Lost it on the way into the mall so didn't get credit for all that mall walking I did that day, but the important thing is he found it. Keep warm, emoticon

I tried it on my shoe, but it didn't record my walk. I wore it on my waist, but it would sometimes pop off. So I started wearing it at the center of my bra. That seemed to work well. I read some of the advice on this team, and tried it on my shoe again, I just walked 2.13 miles, and it didn't record any of it. Back to the bra. :-)

Right shoe, clipped to the crossed laces closest to the ball of my foot. Sometimes I wear sandals indoors and then I put it on the part that goes across the toes; I lost it from the sandals once, but it may not have been clipped on very tightly - I'd had it only a couple of days at the time, and I heard it hit the floor.

I place mine on my sock, with the biggest part inside, incase it comes off. When I'm on the treadmill with lots of heavy movement, I place it on my shoelaces. Like you, I had it on my bra, which was my favorite spot because I felt it was the safest, but it didn't seem to track well there.

I wear mine on my right athletic shoe. I attached it to an elastic hair band and attached the band around the lace. Then I wrapped a rubber band around the base of it. I don't think it is going anywhere. LOL

For the most part I wear my SPAT on my shoe laced with the open end of the SPAT pointing towards the toe of my shoe. On occasion, I have worn my SPAT inside of my sock on the front of my ankle with the open end of the SPAT still pointing towards the toe of my foot.

On my bra. I'm afraid to lose it from my shoe.

Hi Everyone, emoticon

Just curious to find out where you all wear your SPAT. I started with mine on my bra, and it didn't seem to be getting all of my movement, and then I moved it to my shoe, which seems to work better, but still not sure if this is the best place either. Just curious...where do YOU wear yours? And if you have tried different locations, what seems to work the best for you?

Thanks! emoticon
