A few months ago I moaned about how unhappy I was with my WW pedometer and I bought a new Omron one (which is very accurate). I finally decided to stop moaning about the WW one and actually do something about it. It wrote a letter to WW and returned it and asked them if they could either fix it (free of charge) or discard it, as it was no use to me the way it was. I had a nice surprise today. I received a brand new one in the post! I haven't tried it yet as DH and I had just come back from a long walk into town (Subway again, 10km round trip), but I will try it out tomorrow and hopefully have better luck this time.
We walked to town and by the time we arrived my socks felt terrible. They were new ones that I hadn't tried before and they seemed to have too much nylon or something in them. We went to Best & Less and I bought a pack of three pairs of sports socks (mens), cotton blend, but they felt OK. And guess what! They came with a free pedometer! DH wore it home and it was very accurate. I changed my socks before we walked home and the new ones were fine. Glad I found out about the others before the Burnie 10!
Anyway now I have 4 pedometers! DH can't believe what a nutcase I am becoming about my stepping! He suggested I start a new trend and wear all four to the Burnie 10!
Seriously though, I really think that wearing a pedometer encourages me to walk more. I only wear it for planned walks, not around the house and it encourages me to walk the long way everywhere. Surely that is a good thing!
