I’m a bit of an OCD bunny when it comes to fitness, and I really thrive on progress, results and figures. There is nothing more motivational when working out than directly seeing results, and a great way to measure daily progress and activity is to use a pedometer. Pedometers work by counting the steps that you take throughout the day, encouraging you to keep active and leave the car on the drive way wherever possible. The average recommended steps for an adult is 10,000 per day which is the equivalent to around five miles, and this easy to use Ozeri 4x3razor Digital Pocket Pedometer from Moderna Housewares via Amazon makes reaching fitness targets all the more easier.
The pedometer features a new 3D tri-axis Bosch sensor from Germany with X, Y, Z vector detection which provides superior accuracy in counting steps and is incredibly precise. This trendy device has been designed for high-performance athletes as the 4x3razor is the world’s thinnest and lightest pedometer at just 0.5cm thick and only weighs half an ounce so you hardly notice you’re wearing it as it can clip onto your clothes, hang around your neck or sit inside a pocket. The device silently records your steps, distance, calories, fat burned and exercise time as you go about your regular day, with the most advanced tri-axis technology counting up to 1 million steps that are stored in an impressive 7-day memory. It also includes a built-in clock and sports timer with auto sleep technology and comes with a belt clip, extra battery and detachable lanyard.
I found it incredibly easy to set up with its straight forward and user friendly settings, and as I love analysing and comparing my results the daily steps, time, miles, calories and total stats really satisfied my craving for improvement and daily progress. It comes with a spare battery as well as the built-in energy saving mode to preserve energy as it only counts real steps rather than restless movement or sofa shuffling.
In the week that I have been using mine I have really improved my steps and activity throughout the day, as over the colder evenings it’s all too easy to stay indoors, crash out on the sofa and do very little exercise. I find that seeing my steps on the screen and taking note of my activity really helps me to hit my daily step allowance as I know that I have a certain amount left to do and have made it my aim to improve by fifty extra steps each day. At the start of the week my average daily steps were a measly 8,700 and now they are 12,400 which gradually chips away at those extra calories and reduces my waistline too without feeling like I’ve punished myself with a hefty workout. Being more active on a daily basis is a sustainable form of fitness for all ages and abilities and that’s what really makes the difference in keeping weight down for the long term.
