SOURCE: My Omron Walking Style 1 pedometer is not recording all steps.

OK I couldn't find the owners manual for the original posters unit however I did write to the manufacturer so I will keep you updated on that. So basic pedometer trouble shooting. If you replaced the batteries you have to reset all your settings including your stride length. make sure the unit is not hanging off where you click it as irregualr movements will mess up the accuracy. also ensure the unit is upright at all times. Also make sure you are not shuffling or wearing sandals as that will mess up the stride count as well Here is the manual for the HJ-112 model http://www.omronhealthcare.com/img/shop/hj-112---2005-112inst-rev-d.pdfll.

What is the formula to figure out the pace


(I got this from http://www.livestrong.com/article/93695-set-up-omron-pedometer/)
Step 1

Pace out an area that's long enough for you to take 10 normal steps, in your natural stride, without having to turn to one side or the other. Place a piece of tape at one end of this distance, then stand with your toes flush with the edge of the tape.
Step 2

Carry another piece of tape with you as you walk straight ahead, taking 10 steps (5 with your left foot, 5 with the right). Stop at the end of the tenth step and place the tape flush with the toes of your leading foot.
Step 3

Measure the distance from one piece of tape to the other, in inches, with a measuring tape. Divide this distance by 10 to get your average stride length. If, for example, you walked 290 inches in 10 strides, your average stride length will be 290 / 10 = 29 inches.

I have a new sportline belt clip pedometer. It has 3 buttons: mode,set and r/s. How can the length of stride be entered into it so an accurate mileage reading is possible?


I have an older Sportline pedometer with the same three button arrangement.

My pedometer is set as follows:
First press Mode to get the unit in the Distance mode. Note if the unit is in Kilometers or Miles. (Press and hold Reset for 5 seconds to switch the setting. This will reset the entire pedometer.) Press and hold Set for 2 seconds. The current (or default) step length will appear and flash. Press Set repeatedly until your step length is displayed. It changes by 1" or 1 cm at a time. Then release the Set button. (The pedometer will return to the normal operating mode if you do not press a button for 5 seconds.) When you reach the maximum step length, the unit will advance to the lowest step lenght when you press Set again. Since my step length is actually not a whole number, I rounded down.

A different Sportline step and distance pedometer (the 340) is set slightly differently. To switch from Miles to Kilometers, press and hold Mode when in the Step mode. Then switch to the distance mode and press and hold Set until the step length flashes. Press Reset to advance the current step length by 1" or 2 cm. Then release the button when you have the correct step length displayed. The pedometer will return to the normal mode after 5 seconds with no button presses.

Many Sportline pedometer manuals are available from the company's web site on the product site: http://www.sportline.com . You can look up the model number.

If you add your Sportline pedometer model, I'll be glad to give the specific setting procedure for you.

I hope this helps.

    How do you work the pedometer


    Switch on, set up the timeframe you want it to record your steps, press start and have it in your pocket on your belt, when you walk. The motion sensors will detect the amount of steps you take within a given time period, or if you have it on all day, it will take your whole day's walking steps.

    1. Reset pedometer by pressing the reset button.
    2. Find a long open place and take 20 steps with the pedometer
    closed.
    3. Check the number of steps the pedometer counted. It should be
    between 19 and 21 steps.
    4. If the count was not right, try to move the pedometer forward
    (toward your belly button) or back (toward your hip) on your
    waist.
    5. Repeat this until you get the best count of your steps.
    6. Once found, place your pedometer in this spot each day.

    I am having problems with my Pedometer. What should I do?


    Review the following questions for common pedometer troubleshooting: a) Where are you wearing the pedometer? Make sure you are wearing your pedometer correctly by following these steps: * Clip your pedometer to your waistband or belt, directly above your knee. * Be sure your pedometer is perpendicular to the ground, not angled or dangling from your clothing. * Do not wear the pedometer on your shoe, sock, pocket or wrist. It will not provide an accurate reading. * Test the pedometer for accuracy by setting the step counter to zero and walking 50 steps. Check the display. If the reading is between 45-55, your step counter is functioning properly. If it reads more or less, reposition the counter on your waist and check again. * Your pedometer may give inaccurate results if you have had recent surgery or knee, leg, or foot problems. You may be favoring a leg or foot while walking. b)My pedometer has a clicking or loose part sound? Is it broken? No, a clicking or loose part sound is not an indicator of a broken pedometer. Every pedometer has an arm or pendulum inside of it. This is what counts the steps. The clicking noise that can be heard when the pedometer is shaken (or when you are walking) is the pendulum. c)The reset button will not work. The pendulum inside the pedometer is linked to the step counting device. The pendulum may become immobile from time to time, and this can prevent the reset button on the step counter from doing its job. If pressing the reset button a few times does not clear the display, here is what you can do to release the pendulum: * Give the pedometer a few gentle shakes while keeping the reset button held down. This un-sticks the pendulum. * Release the button. If the display has not cleared, press and release the button one more time. * If the display does not reset after trying this once or twice, call Customer Service.
