    Default Pedometer Error Thoughts

    Some are reporting discrepancies between pedometer as measured by Neo vs. a real Pedometer. I am willing to bet distance is calculated by average gait distance based on height. So if you have a real pedometer or are able to measure the distance walked by GPS, try adjusting your height in the Neo pedometer and see what adjustment you have to make to get the distances to match. I bet the rest of us can use that to adjust our height to get a more accurate distance walked.

    It definitely isn't accurate as far a treadmills go. For example using the fitness app on the treadmill I'll be up to 3 miles distance but on the Neo it will say 2 miles. Also the heart rate varies a lot.

    On some of my runs compared to a fit bit it is about 50 steps off from what the fit bit says. Still not too bad!

    I was thinking about this one today and thought that as long as I use the same app, it doesn't matter if it is off as long as I compare the daily results against itself. If it's off 100 steps a day it's consistent against itself. If I want to increase my walk by 2000 steps it is still just adding 2000 steps to the same app.
