Do pedometers really work?
I recently bought one and I have notice that it even counts when I sneeze and cough...lol
Did I just buy a "cheap" one? Am I doing something wrong?
I am re setting it and starting over today so we will see !?!
I purchased an Omron HJ-112 from Amazon.com through the 3fatchicks "store" tab after recommendations from one of the forums here. It has one of the top ratings and was only $19.95. I choose the 112 because I can carry it in my pocket or even pocketbook according to the instructions. Another girl I work with just got a pedometer as well, a different brand, and we compare our step numbers at work. We run about the same. I have Restless Leg Syndrome and my pedometer does not register those movements. I have never thought to look at it after sneezing.
It is a nice tool and toy. I makes me aware of my activity level.
Make sure you read your instructions, you have to set up your stride before using the pedometer.

Reason: added last sentence about setting stride
I have an Omron pedometer. I find it to be very accurate. I got mine off of Ebay. It keeps track of steps walked, aerobics steps taken, distance walked and calories burned. And it has a memory that keeps track of things for 7 days.
