SOURCE: My Omron Walking Style 1 pedometer is not recording all steps.

OK I couldn't find the owners manual for the original posters unit however I did write to the manufacturer so I will keep you updated on that. So basic pedometer trouble shooting. If you replaced the batteries you have to reset all your settings including your stride length. make sure the unit is not hanging off where you click it as irregualr movements will mess up the accuracy. also ensure the unit is upright at all times. Also make sure you are not shuffling or wearing sandals as that will mess up the stride count as well Here is the manual for the HJ-112 model http://www.omronhealthcare.com/img/shop/hj-112---2005-112inst-rev-d.pdfll.

The unit may not count steps correctly in the following conditions:
1. The memory is displayed or the unit is being set.
2. The unit is not positioned correctly.
• When the front of the main unit is placed in the angle of less than 60° or horizontal to the ground.
NOTE: The unit can count steps even if it is slanted or placed upside-down, or if the main unit is
perpendicular to the ground.
3. The unit moves irregularly.
• When the main unit is placed in the bag and the bag moves irregularly because it hits your foot, your belt or the top of your pants.
• When the unit hangs from your belt, the top of your pants or a bag.
4. Walking at an inconsistent pace.
• When you shuffle or wear sandals
• When you fail to walk consistently in a crowded place
5. Up and down movement.
• Standing up and/or sitting down movement
• Playing sports other than walking
• Ascending or descending movement at stairs or in a steep slope
6. Vibrations from a moving vehicle
• Such as riding a bicycle, automobile, train or bus.
7. Jog or walk extremely slowly.
NOTE: The unit will count steps during jogging if it is attached to your belt or the top of your pants with a holder.

To change the time, weight, or stride length after the setting is completed:
1. Press and hold the SET Button for 2 seconds.
2. Change the setting.
NOTE: If the setting does not need to be changed, press the set button to advance to the next setting.

The first time you use this device, the first few steps are used as a test. This may be why your data was reset, but it sounds more like a device problem.

If all else fails, you may have a faulty Pedometer. If that's the case, contact Omron Customer Service: 1 (800) 634-4350

Where do I attach my Tag Master Pedometer with light for best results


Most pedometers need to be several inches from your center body or directly in line with your knee to accurately record the number of steps you take each day. The pedometers work by using a pendulum which moves the counter as you move forward or backward. Use the provided clip attachment to secure the pedometer to your waistband or belt. Walk for about 20 steps, stop and check the pedometer for accuracy. Adjust it closer or farther to your naval until the counter is accurate. If you have a large abdomen, secure the pedometer to the back of your waistband and recount your steps.

To be honest with you, the cheap ones are the best. As a nurse, they are the ones that are used in hospital and rehab centers, they are cheap, and they work, and can be tossed or just simply given to the client at discharge. BUT, as you already have the unit, I would make sure that you attach it to the same belt, hoop, whatever you are attaching it too, keep it the same way every time. yes I also know that we do not like to wear the same workout clothes or outfit every time, but it really does matter, go figure! Take care.... Guy

I am having problems with my Pedometer. What should I do?


Review the following questions for common pedometer troubleshooting: a) Where are you wearing the pedometer? Make sure you are wearing your pedometer correctly by following these steps: * Clip your pedometer to your waistband or belt, directly above your knee. * Be sure your pedometer is perpendicular to the ground, not angled or dangling from your clothing. * Do not wear the pedometer on your shoe, sock, pocket or wrist. It will not provide an accurate reading. * Test the pedometer for accuracy by setting the step counter to zero and walking 50 steps. Check the display. If the reading is between 45-55, your step counter is functioning properly. If it reads more or less, reposition the counter on your waist and check again. * Your pedometer may give inaccurate results if you have had recent surgery or knee, leg, or foot problems. You may be favoring a leg or foot while walking. b)My pedometer has a clicking or loose part sound? Is it broken? No, a clicking or loose part sound is not an indicator of a broken pedometer. Every pedometer has an arm or pendulum inside of it. This is what counts the steps. The clicking noise that can be heard when the pedometer is shaken (or when you are walking) is the pendulum. c)The reset button will not work. The pendulum inside the pedometer is linked to the step counting device. The pendulum may become immobile from time to time, and this can prevent the reset button on the step counter from doing its job. If pressing the reset button a few times does not clear the display, here is what you can do to release the pendulum: * Give the pedometer a few gentle shakes while keeping the reset button held down. This un-sticks the pendulum. * Release the button. If the display has not cleared, press and release the button one more time. * If the display does not reset after trying this once or twice, call Customer Service.
