This is a common type of pedometer. The problem with it (and so many others) is that it does not consistently count steps. I've walked with it and another pedometer of similar design and had big discrepancies in step count. I've actually counted steps and compared the number with the number on the pedometer--and they are not the same. I got this--and the other--because my doctor loaned me a similar one that was very accurate. However, I've been disappointed with these. I still use it to give a "ballpark" number, but I wish I had the better medical one.
I bought this watch for my 13-year old daughter who is into bracelets. She loved the look of it. Unfortunately it took her a few days to start using it after she got it because it didn't come with batteries (I thought watches now-a-days just came with batteries??). Now she still loves the look of it, but can't use it to tell time because it slows down several times a day. I thought about returning the watch but she likes the bracelet aspect of it.
It was different that the time display was vertical instead of horizontal - which she thought was cool.
Seeing the date and month is harder because you have to press this itty-bitty button in the back of the watch to get the display to switch.
