Pedometers Des Moines IA

Pedometers are secured to your clothes via a clip. Where you clip your pedometer can influence its accuracy. The best place to secure your pedometer is at your waistband where you can easily view the display. Clip the pedometer on upright (so that it stands straight up and doesn't tilt). It should also be worn away from other clothing so rubbing doesn't knock the display buttons and throw off your step count.
