Type of PedometerPocket Pedometer
Since I got my Striiv, I've been able to do 10,000+ steps most days (my job provides between 6,000-8,000). It goes beyond most other pedometers in that it offers you challenges through the day, like "keep active for 3 more minutes" or "climb 15 stairs in 5 minutes". It tracks steps, mileage, calories, stairs. It also enables you to earn "energy", which can be applied to the device's game, and also to charitable donations through Global Giving. This can also be motivating!
The only thing I don't like is that it is hard to read in bright sunlight. Striiv has very responsive online support through its website (www.striiv.com) and Facebook. There is an active online community. You do have to plug it in to your computer occasionally, to activate the donations feature and have the credits applied.
