Pro Tracks calories burned very accurately
The amount of calories you burn daily is adjusted based on your weight and age. That's great, if you’re on a diet due to health issues and need precise data.
Pro Easy to wear discreetly
The pedometer is small and unnoticeable. You can put it in your pocket or attach to your belt without worrying if it's going to ruin your outfit.
Pro Extremely long battery life
The battery of this pedometer lasts about 6 months.
Pro Very accurate step count
If your attach this pedometer firmly to your pocket, or bra, it will count the number of steps you make with high precision. It’s achieved by taking your personal data – height, weight, into account.
Pro Keeps you motivated with daily and weekly goals
You have the ability to set daily and weekly goals to keep yourself motivated. The pedometer then tracks your progress with a percentage indicator in the bottom right corner.
Pro Great variety of functions
Besides tracking steps, this gadget records distance traveled, calories burned, and your total exercise time. You can input your fitness goals and monitor daily progress, and set an alarm.
Pro Convenient to wear
You can put it in your pocket, attach to your hip/belt, or wear around your neck and it will count your steps perfectly. Be sure to check that it’s in the right position; it doesn’t work accurately upside down.
Con Inclined to rust
A big flaw in the build is that if you wear this pedometer continuously around your neck, the bolts that hold the battery in start rusting from your sweat. The housing ends up rusty and impaired.
Con Doesn’t work well if accidentally displaced
If you’re not careful about always having this pedometer in the right position (with the lanyard loop up), it tends to over-count your steps. It starts counting in random motions, jiggles and accidental sways. Keep it attached to your pocket, or bra, to get the best results.
Con You eventually have to replace the battery
Even though the battery lasts for a long time, you will be eventually required to buy a new one for $2-3 as a replacement.
Con Doesn’t connect with your smartphone
You will not be able to get notifications from your phone, control your playlist, or use the GPS.
Even though it’s light and pretty thin, this pedometer is 6 inches long, which is more than the usual pedometer’s dimensions.
Con Memory only lasts 7 days
Since the workout log is only saved for a week, you can’t monitor your overall, long-term progress.
