Review: Digital Pocket 3D Pedometer


I have been sent an Ozeri 4x3sport Digital Pocket 3D Pedometer (with Tri-Axis Technology & 30 Day Memory) to test out and review. Oh how I love gadgets and gizmos that help me motivate myself to get my backside out of the door and moving!

This is a sweet little machine. It's very simple to set up - I even managed to do that while I had the kids buzzing around me getting ready for school as the first time I wanted to use the pedometer was when I walked to town straight after the school drop off. It's small and very light weight. I slipped it into my jeans pocket and off we went. It also comes with a wrist strap and a clip so you can use it if you're not wearing anything with pockets.

Now, as any of my regular readers will know, I already track my steps using a couple of other apps. So I was able to do a little comparison of what steps the Ozeri Digital Pocket recorded against the others. And I was very impressed as the count was almost exactly the same on all three - I would expect a little discrepancy as nothing counts your steps 100% accurately. Scrolling through the "mode" options I could see distance covered, time spent, and estimated cals burned. Again, because it was set up to my measurements, it largely agreed with the other bits of kit I was carrying. Awesome!

This pedometer comes with a lithium battery included. I was little concerned that this might mean it needed replacing frequently, as my rechargeable ones need sorting every 3-5 days. But I've had this for a while now and it's still going strong. Mainly because the display goes to sleep when you're not moving around - where as my others are constantly on.

This is a great pedometer, especially if you're not looking for something that's not reliant on having an app on a smart phone or linking to a web site. All the info you want from it is right there on the machine and available at the tap of a button. It's small but very clear to read, it's very light weight and versatile to carry around, and has an impressive battery life.
