Sorryyy
I've had many pedometers,but this is by far my favorite.It's more accurate and harder to lose then other brand.It'll keep a 7 day log of your steps and has many other features.You wont have to reset it, at midnight it'll start a new day.I wear a pedometer constantly and would recommend this one above any other.

Easy to read. Keeps you wanting to walk. Much of the material you will already know, but it reinforces your knowledge of why walking is so very good for the body.

I love my pedometer, purchased after seeing Fenton in Supersize Me. I love it so much, I bought 6 Omrons in recent weeks to give to good friends. But the book - whoa! Feeble. It felt like a magazine article, pumped full of air to bring it up to the size of a book. I felt there was nothing that could not have fit into a 2-3 page tightly written article. Thank you amazon for your generous return policy!

I bought it for my mom along with a pedometer. Seems an easy read with sensible, easy-to-follow directions. Too bad it doesn't do the walking for her.

My first thought when I saw this book was, " what a stupid book -who needs a book about how to operate a pedometer." My curiosity about what the book might entail made me open the first few pages and read a bit. I was pleasantly surprised by the words on the page. This is definitely a good book for people who are at or below the basic level of fitness and want to get started doing something to improve their health.
There is really nothing simpler than putting on a pedometer and letting it count your steps, and the book doesn't explain pedometers as much as the concept of walking your way to fitness with the aid of a pedometer. There is a nice list of resources at the back of the book, as well as some suggestions about what pedometer to purchase. There are a few more than 6 chapters but, basically, this is a 6-week program that is designed to increase your steps per day up to 10,000. The author shows you creative ways to achieve your step goal (although not all of them are practical, especially if you live in a large, sprawling city or an inner city neighborhood with limited walking spaces). Overall, I enjoyed the book and found it easy to read and very informative. The book is primarily for beginners/those not interested in high-impact activities and will get you interested enough to try and walk your way to health.

Gained a lot of knowledge from reading this book, if you want to do serious walking this is the book to read. But you do require a pedometer which helps tremendously, thank you Amazon for prompt delivery to South Africa

The book is well written, easy to read and the right size to easily fit into your gym bag or backpack (5 1/2 X 8 1/2). Excellent ideas on setting up your own program. Relatively inexpensive.
I've had a pedometer for quite a while now, and although I knew how to keep track of the amount of steps taken daily, I didn't have a concrete plan on how to increase that amount. This book helped me to set goals for every week and gave me the motivation to do it!
I am now half-way on my program and plan to continue until I reach my 10,000 steps a day goal.
