    Talk to me about Pedometers

    I thought Id try using a pedometer just to see how far I stroll along the beach on my hunts.

    The reviews Ive read on many are not very*complimentary. *It seems the common complaint centers on accuracy and battery life.

    Id appreciate your thoughts and recommendations.

    Thanks

    Bought one years ago. Wore it at work. Wished I'd never done it! Work just wasn't as much fun after I figured out I was walking seven more miles than I thought.

    Do you have a gps? Start a track and it'll tell you how far you went without carrying another piece of equipment. Not to mention the cost of a pedometer. GPS - more useful.
    I know it's here, just need a bigger coil!

    I think I know what my last words will be....

    Try using your phone with a GPS tracking app.

    Way back I would take a picture where I started and ended. Import those into google earth and it drops a pin. Then you can measure it. Then i got a smart phone.

    I used the HR app on my Apple phone. Some use the under armor app but i found it unreliable.

    When i needed to track heart rate and calories I got a fitbit. It is pretty accurate using your phone gps. I like seeing how far i walk and if i am walking a mile to a certain point that helps. Also shows when you work your heart so that is good.

    It is very hard to see on a Sunny day. I check it later but would like to be able to see it and the time without removing sunglasses and cupping my hand over it.

    I use my Apple Watch. It counts your steps, miles, calories burned, etc.
