I love this post by Barbara Froman, and I share it here. (By the way, I have been known to curse quite frequently.) Happy 2018!

About pedometergeek

A pharmacist by profession, a haiku poet by nature, I read and write. I have a book of haiku, Ohayo Haiku, and another somewhat alternative haiku book, Three Breaths, but write other genres. I also read...lots of novels! My favorite is, and remains, Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged but I am also a big Harry Potter fan. I truly am a pedometer geek strapping on my pedometer as soon as I awaken.

    Be well and try not to curse at your fitbit. 😉

    • I will try not to, but I can’t make any promises. With each day I am understanding the fitbit better. I still don’t understand why there is such a discrepancy between my pedometer results and my fitbit’s results. Rob believes that my pedometer hasn’t been recording all of my steps. It does have a feature where it doesn’t start counting until four or more steps have been taken, but then it catches up. Who knows? I continue to use both for now, and at least with the fitbit, it reminds me to move.
      Happy Hogmanay and Happy New Year! ~nan

        Some pedometers take into account your pace/stride. I don’t think the Fitbit does that.
        But then I’m no fitbit expert.

        When the weather was better I was walking more. Now I’m happy to get that minimum goal per day. Though I’m attempting some different movement routines. 🙂


  3. My Omron pedometer’s setting includes the stride length. It has a default setting at 20 inches (1 foot, 8 inches), but can be adjusted shorter or longer. That stride length determines how many steps are in a mile, etc. I think you are right; the Fitbit doesn’t look at that although I did see some stride information in my first day of using it. It suggested a stride length of 2 foot 6 inches. I could do that, but I would look silly. Maybe some men have that long a stride, but I certainly don’t. Well, should get moving before my Fitibit goes off. ~nan
