We just bought a fitbit, it registers steps when none are taken. How do we fix that?


It registers inertia, so when you put your wrist on a table, you have taken a step. The best thing to do is to take it off when you sit or wear it on you ankle. The count would not be too skewed anyway if you are doing 7,000 steps a day and it registers an extra 20..

How does a pedometer measure distance


There is a little weight that moves up and down every time it is shook (i.e. a step is taken). It uses an average human stride length (some can be adjusted) to calculate the distance.

Why does my pedometer goes into sleep mode ewhen I stop and wont go back on when I start walking again. What do I havwe to do to get it started again?


This pedometer is programmed to go to sleep for a couple of reasons.
  1. To save battery life.
  2. To not inadvertently add steps to jostles or shakes. This pedometer has been programmed to only start counting steps at your 10th step from the sleep mode. This is to help with the accracy of the device.

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.

    Where actually is the best place to put the pedometer . How near the hip. Please send diagram of position.


    Hi,

    Literally, on the belt... If you imagine your waist as a clock with 12 to the front then the best position for the pedometer is anywhere between 9 and 11 or 1 and 3.
    It will work if you have it on the back but best result is from side to front as the shock from your foot hitting the ground travels up the front of the leg more strongly.

    It reads the steps intermittently


    Hi,

    First thing to check is the position you are wearing it. Ideally, if you imagine your waist as a clock with 12 to the front then the perfect position is on the belt line at between 9 and 11 or 1 and 3.
    The reason for this is because the shock of your foot hitting the ground travels most noticeably up the front of the leg and so the pedometer is right in the path of the impact.
    It will give you the inconsistent reading if worn on the back or middle front (12 O' Clock).

    If it's still reading incorrectly then you could be looking at a fault in the pedometer itself.. Check the position first though...

    closed.
    3. Check the number of steps the pedometer counted. It should be
    between 19 and 21 steps.
    4. If the count was not right, try to move the pedometer forward
    (toward your belly button) or back (toward your hip) on your
    waist.
    5. Repeat this until you get the best count of your steps.
    6. Once found, place your pedometer in this spot each day.

    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.
