Calories Burned Counter  How To Use A Pedometer Powered By Docstoc
					A calories burned counter is called a pedometer. Choosing a good and high quality
Digital Calories burned counter usually means paying more as the more expensive
pedometers are better. As with everything you buy, you get what you pay for.
However, you can avoid paying for more pedometer than you need by researching and
looking for reviews. The following are characteristics of a good Calories burned
counter.
  1. It Doesn’t Under-Count Or Over-Count Steps
  The most essential characteristic of a good Calories burned counter is accuracy.
While no pedometer can have 100% accuracy in counting steps, you should not get
one that under-counts or over-counts in either extreme. In most cases, a poor quality
calories burned counter usually under-counts your steps. Because every step counts,
you may end up working harder than you should if you buy a poor quality pedometer.
  2. It Comes with a Waistband Clip or Durable Belt
  No matter how well the pedometer itself works, it can only work if it is attached to
you. That’s why you don’t want to choose a Digital Calories burned counter that
comes with a belt or waistband clip that breaks easily. Once the clip or belt is broken
the device may not be unusable since it is designed to be clipped firmly on our waist
to count steps properly. Always look out for belt or waistband clip that comes with
lifetime warranty if available as you can return it for a replacement if it breaks.
  3. Comes With Warranty (At Least 1 Year)
  A good quality calories burned counter will come with minimum one year warranty
or more. A pedometer with no warranty or a limited warranty gives you no assurance
that the device will last.
  4. Comes With Longer Battery Life
  A calories burned counter that comes with only a short battery life will not be
accurate and this will negatively affect your wellness and fitness program. Thus, you
must find one that has a longer battery life.
  5. Comes With "False Step" Sensor To Remove Non-Step Motion
  The better calories burned counters come with built-in "false step" sensor. These
filter out motions that are not considered as a "normal step". Such calories burned
counters are usually more accurate in results compared to others.
  6. Has Separate Step and Aerobic Step Counters
  A pedometer that has separate calories burned counters for regular steps and for
minutes walked more than 10 minutes continuously will give you a better sense of the
actual calories you have burned off. These pedometers are more sophisticated and
thus better.
  7. Has an Automatic Shut Down Feature
  Some of the more advanced calories burned counters will automatically reset
themselves at midnight. While this isn’t an essential feature, it is nice to know that
you get a fresh count of your steps each morning.
  Calories burned counters that are used as freebies or are items given away in trade
shows, or sold as promotional items are typically considered as "cheap" and
"not-so-good-quality" Pedometers.
  Instead, invest the $25 to $35 out of your own pocket to get one of the top quality
calories burned counters available today.
