I have a new gadget- Mi Mio watch pedometer.
I bought it from Ebay- it is an older model-but stylish and it really works.
It was investment of $14.00 and I did put a new battery in it
It was a bit confusing to use the first time. It keeps track of steps, calories burned age and a few more things, but I mainly use if for keeping track of my steps and the time of day- nice big digital read outs.
(I was using the nice pedometer I recieved from the Lighten Up Program, but I would lose it, not place it right or forget it . )
This watch is much easier for me -
Not sure how a watch keeps track of my steps, but I havefound that it is quite accurate.
I really gave it a chance to work last week when I let my son fish off the pier at Fairport Harbor and I walked 7000 steps around the town. The first few were up to the top of the Fairport by the Lighthouse. It was a great walk, I was suprised to see how nice the town was and the view were fabulous, but I am sucker for sunset views over any body of water, even Lake Erie.
