Important: Make sure to adjust the pedometer's settings when you first start the app. You may find that the sensitivity is too high for you. You can also adjust stride length, body mass, switch between metric and English units, and many other adjustments to make the step count and calories burned as accurate as possible for your body type.
Using a pedometer is a great way to burn calories and stay in shape. You are probably not aware of the number of steps taken each day, and so you wouldn't know whether you're activity is on the increase or decrease. Step Counter tracks your daily walking and graphs it for you, making it better than a normal pedometer.
If you're trying to lose weight, carrying a pedometer with you is a great first step. And rather than carrying an extra pedometer with you, now your Android smartphone can be a pedometer, for free!
How it works:
Using your phone's built in accelerometer, the Step Counter app functions as a pedometer to track the number of steps you take each day. Just like a traditional pedometer, Step Counter can track the number of steps and convert that into mileage. But its better than a traditional pedometer too - Step Counter can track your calories burned, and it can be adjusted for your body type, weight, and stride length to give you accurate distance and calorie calculations.
Step Counter also shows you notifications each time you walk a mile, so you'll get constant encouragement towards your fitness goals. Try doing that with a regular pedometer!
Throw away your old pedometer and switch to Step Counter Free. You'll be surprised at how many miles you walk in a single day, and you'll enjoy seeing the miles and calories burned during the weeks and months.
We hope you enjoy this free pedometer! If you have suggestions on how we can improve our step counter please let us know. We'd love to hear from you.
