Holiday Must Have: Reebok InColor Pedometer #Giveaway

When my sister was visiting this summer, she told me that she wears a pedometer during most of her day. She has a job where she is very mobile at times and this was a great way of tracking how she measures up in her day to day routines.

When I first thought about using a pedometer for myself, I was a little apprehensive. I wasn’t sure I wanted to know how many steps I did, or more importantly, didn’t take in a day. This would be it, tangible proof that I am a couch potato. The only way to find out was to take that first step (pun intended) and see where I stood.

I received the InColor Pedometer from Reebok (site currently down for maintenance). It is small, sleek and comes with a clip to attach it to your person. The instructions to set it up are straightforward and you set your weight and height in LB (pounds/inches) or KG (kilograms/centimeters). Then you enter in your stride length. Based on your height/weight, it will calculate your stride length for you, but you can adjust it if it is not correct. If you have a goal in mind of how far you want to walk per hour, you have the option of setting it up, or turning this feature off. If you choose to activate it, your monitor will tell you if you need to slow down or speed up or if you are right on track.

Once it is set up, you just clip it on and start walking. A fun feature on this pedometer is that you can adjust the LCD screen display color to four different colors (blue, green, purple, yellow). After a little while, the screen goes blank, but it still counts your steps. To see your progress, just click the button and the step count displays. When you click the button again, you can scroll through other measurements such as distance, pace, calories and activity timer. The activity timer records the total amount you are actually moving throughout the day. When you stop moving, the timer stops counting.

Since ‘weight’ topics can be a touchy subject for some people, this is something I would either buy for myself, or buy for someone who specifically asked for it. The Reebok InColor Pedometer is available for a suggested price of $39.99.

For helping me to shed my ‘soon-to-be-extra-weight-brought-on-by-amazing-holiday-cooking-and-baking”, Reebok makes my sixth day of my 12 Days of Christmas list.

One lucky This Bird’s Day reader will win a InColor Pedometer from Reebok (ARV $40).

    I’d keep this for myself – I could use it, but I’m not sure who I could give it to without fearing insult.

    I would keep it for myself! We just opened a new airport in Winnipeg (where I work) and boy is there way more walking involved! Each day feels like a work out and I’d love to see how many steps I actually take!

    If I win I would keep it for myself as the one I use now is slowly dieing. I do a lot of walking and like to keep track of how many steps I take each day.

  • mona Nov 7, 2011, 9:16 pm

    I’d likely keep it for myself, as I need to get moving way more…and I think it’s a motivator to know how much you’re actually stepping, to what you should be stepping per day.
