Your step counter (pedometer) will count your steps when walking, hiking, jogging, running, even playing golf, tennis, basketball or soccer, but you might not want to wear it when playing some sports. The step counter will not count your steps when using a bicycle, doing cross-country skiing or several other activities.
Keep track of your steps by using a written daily log.
Use the following conversion charts to figure out your total number of steps and the distance you've traveled.
- Chart 1: Minutes to Steps - Converts the duration of your activities into steps.
- Chart 2: Steps to Miles - Converts your steps into miles.
- Chart 3: Step Facts - Helps you evaluate your progress.
