I have used several different types of Pedometers in the past and most of them have been highly inaccurate. Therefore, I didn’t expect much from the Ozeri Pedometer with Tri-Axis Technology. However, I was pleasantly surprised with my experience. Though not perfect, the Ozeri Pedometer definitely out performs the cheap pedometers I’ve used.
What I liked most about the Ozeri Pedometer is that it accurately counted my steps. I went up and down the street several times counting my steps and the pedometer was always within one step count of what I counted. The drawback is that the mileage wasn’t exactly on but that could be attributed to the way I measured my steps. I reset it several times so that I could get it close to accurate.
I usually use a GPS or my phone with a GPS app while I hike. However, on many back country trails I lose my GPS signals. The Ozeri Pedometer kept counting steps and mileage when GPS signals failed. Even when they didn’t fail, the pedometer was within .25 miles of what my GPS recorded. Even on trails with known mileage, the pedometer though not completely accurate on mileage was close enough that I was still happy and glad I had it.
The Ozeri Pedometer is a good device at a reasonable price point. I haven’t had it long enough to comment on the durability or how long the battery lasts but I have used it on several day long hikes without having to replace the battery.
