Weight Watchers Points Pedometer
Advantages: Accurate; Works brill; Easy to set up and use
Disadvantages: The safety clip is a bit pointed and digs in
I wanted a pedometer for ages but the cheapo ones don't work all that well, and no way was I spending mega money on one in case I ended up not using it much. My mates mum gave me this Weight Watchers branded one last month because she'd bought an updated version, it's actually a pretty accurate pedometer with a few extra functions to keep me on the straight and narrow.
The pedometer cost about £9.00 when she first bought it, you can buy them in Weight Watchers meetings or online. This pedometer isn't available in the shops because it's one of them products that Weight Watchers want to keep as exclusive as possible to members. It comes with a 12 month guarantee and remember that in that 12 months even if something dead minor happens like the battery going then you can get it replaced or put right again.
The pedometer is very easy to set up, you just use the MENU and UP/DOWN arrows to input your age, weight, stride length etc and then it's ready to go. You attach it to your waistband by the strong clip that is on the back of the pedometer and there's also a safety cord thingy which also clips to your waistband, this part will save your pedometer from landing on the floor if the main clips fails for whatever reason.
The screen on the pedometer is quite big and very easy to read, it shows you how far you've walked with a little graph thing that fills in a cube each time you walk so many steps. If you want a more accurate reading then you need to go into the menus but the information is very easy to find that way and it's just a case of going through different screens of information until you get to the part you want to find.
As well as counting your steps and working out how far you've walked, this pedometer is also brill for people who are on Weight Watchers because it will calculate how much walking you need to do to get extra points for food. Weight Watchers is all about points so if you walk for longer the pedometer will tell you that you've burned up enough calories to have an extra 1 or 2 or whatever points. I do quite a bit of walking but am not very good at remembering to put the pedometer on so don't know if I ever work up enough miles to get some bonus food points, it's not like I actually count points anyway so who cares??? lol
The pedometer is quite comfortable to wear because it's made out of chunky rounded plastic that doesn't dig in or anything like that, the only thing I have problems with sometimes is the little plastic safety clip because that will dig in when I sit down because of it being pointed at the edges.
I'd recommend this pedometer but if you can get a cheaper accurate one then go for that. I reckon this one is most useful if you're on the Weight Watchers diet because of how it will work out your points for you, for me though I'm happy that it's counting my steps and since I started wearing it I'm shocked at how much walking I do even when it's just the days that I'm taking care of my little sister in the house. On average you need to do 10000 steps a day to be healthy and even when I'm dossing I do about 8000, on shopping and playgroup days I can easy walk 25000 steps and more so it just shows I'm not as lazy as I think!
Recommended.... accurate and easy to use!
