Pedometer Hardware

 

As long as your employees using the pedometer®, we will repair or replace them if necessary, free of charge. We ask no questions and we will make sure that your employees can use the pedometer® worry-free. Just send us back the defect pedometer® and we will immediately send substitute (applies only to the original fitimjob-pedometer®).

Attach the pedometer correctly and securely

Use the clip to attach the pedometer to your waistband or belt. It is important that it is attached upright on the side of your waistband (or belt) close to your hip bone (on the right or left). This guarantees that the steps are counted accurately. pedometer

Features

  • Step counter, counts up to 99,999 steps
  • display of the distance covered, up to 99,999 km
  • Calorie use indicator, up to 99'999 Kcal
  • low energy consumption: operates with 1 x 1.5 volt battery
  • automatically switches off after 1 minute of inactivity

Fixation

The steps are identified through the movement of the hip. To ensure that the device works reliably, you should attach it as closely as possible to your hip bone (on the right or left).

Use

The step counter was basically designed for normal daily physical activity (walking, strolling, running). It is not robust enough to function reliably during extreme outdoor activities and/or under special weather conditions (e.g. mountain trekking, etc.).

Step counter function

  • The step counter starts to count the steps as soon as the motion sensor responds (i.e. while walking with the correctly attached step counter).
  • To reset the step counter, press the Reset key until Zero reappears in the display

Note on function test

First make sure that the arrow on the right hand side of the display points to «Step»! Do not check the step counter by shaking it manually but while walking around with the correctly positioned step counter (see «Attachment»).

Distance covered

  • Press the Mode key until the arrow points to «KM».
  • Press the «SET» key to set the step length, i.e. the distance covered by each step. The indicators begin to flash, the arrow points to «km».
  • Keep the «SET» key pressed until the desired value is set. Once the desired value is set, do not press any key for 3 seconds and the device switches back to display mode for the distance covered.
  • The step counter displays the distance covered as soon as it detects body movement.

Setting the step length

Metrically, from 30 cm to 120 cm; set at intervals of 1 cm. Since we have different step lengths in different circumstances (e.g. walking around in the office vs. brisk walking in nature), the distance displayed is only an estimated value. Essential for you health is the number of steps per day and less the distance covered thereby.

Calorie consumption

  • Press the Mode key until the arrow points to «Kcal».
  • Press the «SET» key to enter the body weight. The indicators begin to flash, the arrow points to «kg».
  • Press the «SET» key until your body weight is displayed. Once the desired value is set, do not press any key for 3 seconds and the device switches back to Calorie Display mode.
  • The step counter displays the calorie consumption as soon as it detects body movement.

Setting the weight

Metrically, from 30 kg to 150 kg, set at intervals of 1 kg. The kcal displayed are very rough estimations, since your individual body mass index (muscle mass compared to fat mass) essentially influences your individual calorie consumption.

Automatic switch-off

If no body movement has been detected for approximately 1 minute, the device switches off automatically. All the values remain in the pedometer’s memory. The device automatically switches back on as soon as it detects body movement.

Metric version

The device has been set to display metric units.

Battery

The device needs 1 x 1.5 V «AG-13» or «LR44» round cell battery .

Trouble shooting

  • Fault – not all steps are counted
    Measure: First make sure that the arrow on the right hand side of the display points to «Step»! Do not check the step counter shaking it manually but while walking around with the correctly positioned step counter (see «Attachment»). Attach the step counter to your body as described in the instruction manual and make sure that you are walking correctly.
  • Fault – unclear display
    Measure: The battery is low, replace the battery. If the environmental temperature is too low: the display appears normal again once the device is in a warmer environment.
  • Fault - LCD is black
    Measure: The step counter has been exposed too long to direct sunlight or has been operating too long in a warm place. The display appears normal again once the device is in the shade and operating at normal operating temperature.
  • Fault – The step setting only allows a range of 12 to 60 instead of 30 to 120 cm
    Fault – The weight setting only allows a range of 60 to 300 instead of 30 to 150 kg
    -> The device is set to the Anglo-American (imperial) measuring system.
    Switching to the metric system:
    (First note the number of steps since they will be lost when switching to the metric system)
    First make sure that the arrow on the right side points to «Step»! Push and hold the button SET until the display shortly goes blank and then shows «0». The pedometer is now set to the metric measuring system.
    When switching to the metric system, step and weight settings are simultaneously switched to the metric system.

Under the following circumstances, the correct number of steps could be falsified:

  • In case of different walking styles, e.g. «lurking» or «bouncy» gait, or when wearing MBT shoes or sandals.
  • In case of additional vertical movements, e.g. when getting up or sitting down, or getting in or out of a verhicle.
