Do you know how many steps a day you take? Most doctors recommend 10,000 a day for adults, 12,000 for girls and 15,000 for boys to have a healthy active lifestyle. Unfortunately, the average American only takes 3000 - 5000 steps per day. I was curious as to which category I would fall into.
I started my research using the Ozeri 4x3runner Digital Pocket 3D Pedometer. This is the first pedometer to feature dual walking and running modes with 3-D tri-axis technology for accuracy. It comes with full instructions, belt clip, a lanyard and lithium battery.

First wanted to see how many steps I averaged during a regular busy day, where I hardly sit down for any length of time. I was hopeful in thinking that it had to be close to 10,000 as tired as I would be at the end of the day. I was a little disappointed to learn I only averaged 3800 - 4700 steps per day.
I told myself that just won't do and I need to kick it up a notch. I used to walk regularly and enjoy it, but things get busy and I fell out of the habit. Now is a good time to start that habit back up and get closer to those 10,000 steps a day.
I have the pedometer on me almost all the time. It's nice and skinny so I can throw it in my pocket or clip it on my pants depending on what I'm wearing. It keeps it's accuracy wherever I stick it. I don't jog, but so far the walking mode is working great for me.
I have had a couple cheap pedometers before that always broke within a few weeks and only had a couple of features. I definitely prefer the Ozeri. It seems to be pretty durable also as I have hit it on the counter and dropped it a couple of times and still good as new.
