The 3dfitbud simple step counter is perfect for me. With the lanyard, i simply wear it around my neck, under my shirt. I have placed it in my pocket as well. It’s great that it is small and so convenient. It counts only your steps, which is all i wanted. With the simple push of a button, you can reset the counter every day. It is battery operated and goes to sleep when it doesn’t detect motion for a while. It restarts when you begin walking again.
I have purchased and used several different pedometers over the years. This is by far the simplest to use if only counting steps. (conversions to miles is easy 2000 steps = approx. 1 mile), especially for the digitally compromised. I keep purchasing additionally fitbuds as our wellness group grows. Seniors love them because they are uncomplicated and durable. The company is responsive to questions and will assist with any questions. Update after 5 months of use: i think this is the 16th fitbud i’ve ordered for our church’s wellness walking program. The fbs have worked wonderfully and only one died after it was dropped in a watering can.
I just pulled out the tab, hung it around my neck, and walked around the house, while counting my steps to check it’s accuracy, which was right on. Then husband took it over, put it in his pocket- and after a week of seeing how well it worked for him, i got a second one for myself. Very simple to use, only records steps, i don’t want it to do anything else. When immobile, it shuts itself off after awhile to conserve battery. Comes back on as you walk- simply check your total at the end of the day, then press and hold button to reset to zero for the next day. Or be like me, and ‘forget’ to reset, and you will start the next day by adding on to the prior day’s total- if you want to ‘cheat’. My husband and i were both shocked and disappointed at our low number of steps, i think unless you use a device like this to count, most folks don’t realize how much they sit. Fyi: when you first start walking, it waits until after you go 10 steps, then begins counting, but then it does include those initial 10. Also, doesn’t seem to count up while on stairs, or on pilates machine, for example- maybe some form of exercise or movement will count, but so far, not for us, it counts our steps only – which is good, as that is what it’s for.
I had the wrist one and didn’t work and you had to sync to another device. Had the clip ons and they always broke. This is so simple wear around your neck, in a pocket or even in your bag. Push and hold button to change for next day. All i wanted was a counter and not pay for the stuff i didn’t need.
I just got this and tried it out around my tiny apartment. I walked an actual 68 steps and it is registering 239. There is no 10 step, in fact it registers the slightest jiggle at any time. Absolutely uselessupdate: due to a shipping error i received 2 of these. The 2nd one seems to be more accurate so far so i am upgrading my review. It does tend to count any movement as a step. I also want to give kudos to the seller as they have been just awesome.
My wife and i are seniors and just wanted to track our daily steps. We didn’t need something that would tell us our pulse, body fat and life expectancy, we just wanted to monitor our daily activities. The 3dfitbud does just that. My wife uses the one that we purchased but i really like it so i am buying another one for myself. One thing that my wife did find is that it seems to be more accurate when she keeps it in her pocket and not on the lanyard which i don’t see as being an issue. We’re old and on a budget and i don’t need to let my friends know how active we are so this seems to be just the right answer.
- But I love this. It is so much better than having
- SIMPLE + ACCURATE –
- Outstanding Pedometer
I rarely give things five stars. It is so much better than having a watch fitness tracker, or a tracker on your phone. This, you don’t have to sync to anything. You just push one button to reset every morning and pop it in your pocket and forget it.
My old fitbit one got washed in the machine and couldn’t be revived. In thinking over a replacement for it i realized that, at 63, i really didn’t need all of the functions it provided so why pay for them?. I began a search here on amazon and came upon the 3dfitbud. Seemed simple and straight forward, and definitely the right price, so i ordered it. I couldn’t be happier with this little thing. I can use the lanyard and wear it around my neck, or stiick it in my pocket. My biggest worry was would the steps count accurately. Amazingly, they do, give or take a step every 100 steps. The read out is very clear, and there’s a simple reset button on the back to go back to zero in the morning.
