The Bottom Line
- Counts steps, distance
- Large number display
- No sensitivity adjustment, so may overcount steps
- Counts steps, calculates distance
- Single button reset.
- Clips to belt.
Guide Review - Sportline 340 Pedometer
The Sportline 340 doesn't have a cover to protect the buttons from accidental reset, but they are recessed and it isn't easy to push them unintentionally. It has a plastic belt clip and doesn't come with a safety leash. I highly recommend adding a safety leash or making your own from some string and a safety pin, as I have lost too many unsecured pedometers. The sample I tried of the 340 was more likely to pop off of my waistband than the other three pedometers I wore at the same time.
The operation is simple. First, find your stride length in inches or centimeters and use the Set button to change it from the default (30 inches).
Now, just start walking. You can reset the step total using the reset button. You toggle between viewing steps and distance with the mode button. It counts up to 99,999 steps and 1000 miles.
This pedometer uses a pendulum mechanism and you can hear it rattle a bit with each step. The mechanism has been upgraded to Sportline's advanced pedometer mechanism.
I like the big number display, which is greatly appreciated by those of us with aging eyes.
The battery is replaceable.
It has a 1-year warranty.
