It seems like everyone these days is into staying fit whatever their fitness level and most can agree that walking is one that almost everyone can do. It limits the physical strain that running places on the joints and even malls are supporting groups to show up early for a trip around the mall indoors, making walking the easiest to do and with very minimal if any cost. Just grab your walking tennis shoes and head out to the location of your choice.
The one fitness tool you might want to invest in is a pedometer. It not only tracks the number of steps, distance walked, calories burned and even speed depending on the model. Of course some are even adding that app to their smart phones as well, but if you're like me, you might notice there are some flaws with some apps. They aren't accurate, lack some of the features I mentioned and require you to carry around your device and engage the app.
I am so glad I had the opportunity to review the CSX P315A 3D Pedometer. It is small, lightweight and can be worn around your neck to keep from losing it if you attack it to your shoes or the weather tends to be a bit wet. It counts down the number of your steps, and even includes the distance walked, calories burned and your speed all in one small, easy to use device. The best part is that it goes into sleep mode after 3 minutes of inactivity. The device can be set up to measure in both standard (miles) and metric (kilometers) depending on your preference. The one feature that I love is the fifteen steps error correction. To avoid counting accidental movement as steps and also to record 'active' steps that will improve your fitness, the counter will wait until you walk 15 continuous steps before it begins recording the steps at 15, 16, 17, etc.
Keep in mind that all 3D pedometers count 'movement' as a step. The pedometer may not count steps correctly in the following conditions: irregular motion such as swinging and vibrating, inconsistent walking pace, standing up, sitting down movements, and even vertical and horizontal vibration in a moving vehicle such as a bicycle, car, train or bus. This device even comes with a pause feature that prevents you from counting any activity you don't wish to be counted like riding in a car or other vehicle.
The pedometer can store up to seven days for the steps, distance, calories, average speed and exercise time and if you don't like the option of placing this around your neck, you can tuck it into your pocket, handbag or backpack or attach it using the strap that is provided. It is recommended to place it under your clothing if you choose the option of wearing it around your neck to prevent bouncing which may cause the pedometer to count extra steps. The best part is that when the batteries need replacing the device will let you know and it requires 1 CR-2032 battery which you can find at most stores. In addition, there is a comprehensive and easy to use instruction guide that will have you up and going in no time flat.
I received the CSX P315A 3D Pedometer compliments of CSX Competitive Sports Xtreme for my honest review of their product and did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review aside from the product in exchange for my fair and unbiased opinion of the product. For anyone who is serious about tracking their walking fitness levels, this is an exceptional product to pick up and begin using immediately. The product comes with a 18 month warranty, a neck lanyard and an easy to use instruction booklet. I would easily give this one a 4.5 out of 5 stars.
