How Pedometers Work:
The word pedometer is actually an ancient name. "Ped" is a Latin word meaning "foot" while "meter" is also Latin (and Greek) for measure. Pedometers measure the up and down motion of your body as you walk or jog. A spring-set horizontal arm acts as a pendulum that makes and breaks an electrical circuit which in turn tallies the number of step counts. Based on a predetermined and set stride rate, the pedometer calculates the distance accumulated based on the number of steps it reads. As a result, it is more accurate when walking or jogging at one continuous stride.
