Pedometers are small, portable devices used to count the number of steps a person takes throughout the day. Traditionally, pedometers are worn on the waistband or belt and use a mechanical or electronic mechanism to detect the movement of the hips, which correlates with walking or running steps. Pedometers typically display the number of steps taken, allowing users to track their daily activity level and set step-based fitness goals. They are simple and affordable tools for promoting physical activity and encouraging individuals to increase their daily step count as part of a healthy lifestyle. While basic pedometers only count steps, more advanced models, often integrated into fitness trackers or smartphones, may also track distance traveled, calories burned, and other metrics. Pedometers are commonly used by individuals seeking to monitor and improve their overall physical activity levels, such as those aiming to increase daily movement for weight management, cardiovascular health, or general fitness.
