A pedometer is used to count the number of steps that you walk. It is an electronic or electromechanical device that works by detecting the movement of a person’s hand or hips while walking. Pedometers have evolved with time. New age pedometers are available with software that automatically determines the distance walked by the person with the help of GPS receiver. These pedometers are mostly used by sports persons and fitness enthusiasts. It is worn on the belt and can be worn all day to tell how many steps a person walks in a day along with the number of kilometers or miles. Sometimes pedometers also record false steps i.e. when you move to get in a car or bend down to tie your shoes. New age pedometers are designed to eliminate these false steps. Some pedometers also calculate the amount of calories burned.
