Product review: J-style 3D Tri-Axis Multifunction Belt Clip Pedometer with Technology Large LCD Screen
What do I want from pedometer? I want it to be accurate and I want it to be easy to wear. J-Style pedometer accomplishes exactly that. I have been using it daily for over a month and it has worked well without problems. Note that I only care about counting steps, some measurements are shown as metric measures such as kilometers rather miles.
The pedometer has a nice lever style clip, which is easy to open and close. The pedometer is worn closed, to see the statistics it collected you need to open it. In addition to the step count, it keeps track of walking distance, burned calories, activity time, average speed, and time of the day.
Display shows from 0 to 99,999 steps, from 0 to 99,999km, from 0 to 99,999 calories, from 0 to 59 hours 59 minutes.
Dimensions of the unit are 2.5" x 1.5" (closed), 2.5" x 2.5" (opened).
The timer runs on one CR2032 battery (included). Estimate life of the battery is 1 year.
Before using it you need to calibrate it to your stride. This is accomplished by hitting a small recessed system reset button (I used a sewing needle to press it). Then you need to specify time and your stride length. The interface requires you to specify this information in centimeters. The stride is measured toe to toe or heel to heel. To get more accurate measurement is better to walk a good number of steps and then divide the total distance by the number of steps taken.
If you are not concerned about the accuracy then you can use average stride length:
Average stride length for ladies: 70 cm (Note! This info has to be in metric measurements)
Average stride length for men: 78 cm
I received this pedometer from the manufacture to provide honest feedback and review (good or bad) for this newly launched product. I hope my description and video helps you to know what to expect.
