The pedometer only counts steps, so there is nothing to set-up. It has a recessed reset button. I like the design in that the reset button is protected from accidental resetting. The pedometer clicks into the shell holder and you pop it out to see the reading. The pedometer is on a leash attached to the shell.
The belt clip was very secure, it didn't pop off my waistband at all. However, it is always smart to add a security leash, especially when being used by active kids.
The pedometer powers down when not in use, to save battery life, and comes alive as soon as it is moved.
I found it to be reasonably accurate for step counting, it exactly matched two other trusted pedometers on an eight-mile walk, throughout the walk.
I love the fun designs, which make this a nice gift for a kid as a first pedometer. They are not child-safe for those under age three.

Bottom Line on GeoPalz Pedometer
I give it four out of five stars because the two-part design is different from what I am used to using, and the pedometer has only a single function (counting steps).
