OPENING THE PEDOMETER PANELS
Holding the front and back panels of the pedometer, release the catch on the top of the panels and then open them
as shown in the illustration.
AFFIXING THE PEDOMETER TO YOUR CLOTHING
• Clip the pedometer securely to your belt or the waistband of your slacks, skirt, training pants, etc.
• Take care that you hook the clip so your belt or waistband enters the clip as far as it will go. Improper attachment
of the pedometer or wearing it an angle can cause mistakes in the number of step count.
• Take care that you do not accidentally press the RESET button while you are attaching or removing the
pedometer. Accidentally pressing the RESET button will reset the number of steps to "0".
• Make sure that the two panels of the pedometer are securely closed while you are using it.
HOW THE PEDOMETER WORKS
• This pedometer is intended for use while walking during normal daily life and during light jogging.
• As you walk or jog across a level surface, the pedometer detects the impact acceleration generated when your
foot hits the ground.
• If you hold the pedometer vertically and shake it up and down, you should be able to hear a rattling sound. This is
the sound of the pendulum inside the pedometer that is used for detecting movement. This sound indicates that
the pedometer is operating normally.
• Note that the pedometer cannot count steps correctly under the conditions described below. Avoid these
conditions whenever using the pedometer.
* Irregular walking
• Walking where it is crowded
• Walking in sandals
• Shuffling your feet
* Any activity other than walking or jogging
• Any activity that requires sudden standing or sitting
• Jumping, or extreme activities or sports
• Climbing or descending stairs, or a steep slope
• Vibration while riding on a car, train, bus, etc.
* Never start on any exercise program without consulting your physician, especially if you are currently under the
care of a physician, or if you have any past history of heart problems.
