Pedometer

How do you get this pedometer thingie to work right. I put it on my waist band and walk. But when I walk and manually count my steps the thingie counts too many steps. I have moved it all over my waist band, but it still does not count right. I think I jiggle too much when I walk. Maybe I should wear an old fashion girdle!!

Judy, It's an old pedometer. I have no instructions. Maybe I will just wear it and use as is. I can get extra credit for each belly jiggle!

maybe you can calculate how many extra steps it counts and then take those off when you logg it is it lik 1 extra every 3 steps or 1 extra for every 1 step i and take off the p% extra
I have had my pedometer not count any when I wear clothes that are too loose
it works best for me on my right side of center at the waist
Good luck hugs Judy:)

Marybeth, I was thinking about your pedometer. You could just ask.com or google how to set your specific brand of pedo. Even if it's old i'd bet you can find how to calibrate it. I googled my grandmother's sewing machine to find out how to thread it, and up it came and that thing is like 35 years old or more.
It may be worth a shot at the web. who knows , you may get it calibrated right without having to add in belly jiggle.
