I bought this for my 8 yr old son because I have a FitBit and he wanted to "compete" with me, but I didn’t want to spend 0 on a full-blown activity tracker. I thought about letting him pick out a pedometer at Walmart, but decided to buy one on Amazon because I thought they’d have more selection and reviews to go by. Well, I chose this one based partially on reviews and partially because they had it in red, and red is his favorite color. He was thrilled as anything when he opened the box and immediately clipped it to his pants and started running around the house to get up his steps. He had gotten over 1000 steps before he sat down. When he stood back up, the pedometer read "0". We set the clock and started it back up and he went running around the house again, but after a few hours, it reset back to 0. The time, the lifetime steps, everything reset. After looking at it, we realized that one of the main buttons on the front of the pedometer is a reset button. It is not a recessed button, it is not a push-and-hold for 30 seconds button, it is just a tap-to-reset and it’s the exact same as the other buttons on the front. Apparently when clipped to your pants, if you bend over or sit down, this button can be pressed accidentally and it resets EVERYTHING. This is crazy. I’m not exactly sure what you would want a reset button for AT ALL, let alone one that is so easily accessible. This is defniitely a strange but major flaw. He is so disappointed, and so am I. I guess we’ll be picking one out at Walmart after all — and making sure there isn’t a reset button on the front!

Every year at work we engage in a friendly competition between units to wear a pedometer for a month to see who can get the highest number of average daily steps. So over the years I’ve purchased a variety of pedometers, and have come to know a few important features to have in a pedometer. To avoid the risk of an accidental reset, the pedometer needs a cover. I broke my own rule and bought this one anyway. To avoid the risk of losing the pedometer, it will need a leash. I’ve lost two without one, dropped and broke a really nice one, and flushed one down the toilet. Clips are not that stable. You’ll need a tether. That is the one good thing this pedometer has.
I chose the Pedusa because of the good reviews, and claims of its sensitivity. What I was hoping for was a pedometer that would register the movement from my bike rides, which I’ve yet to find a pedometer that comes close to tracking the movement from peddling. The Pedusa was pretty disappointing in that area. It also failed the reset on its own test.
I have an Omron pocket pedometer that I’ve used for two years and have found it to be fairly accurate, and have come to appreciate the benefits of a pocket pedometer over a clip-on. Amazingly enough, the Omron has lasted for over two years of daily use on the same battery.
Right now, for the competition, I am wearing both pedometers to make sure I have a back up. So far the Pedusa has consistently registered lower numbers, some days by better than a thousand steps. The other problem are the accidental resets. This is frustrating even when not competing.
If you are not picky about accuracy, and can deal with the occasional reset; for the money, this is an ok pedometer. Not great, but ok. Don’t waste your money on the clip-on accessory. It is clunky, and inhibits the accuracy.
After using this pedometer for about two months, I’m beginning to warm up to it. I’m not having the reset problems as before, mainly as I make sure not to have anything else in my pocket. The step count has been tracking closer to the Omron, so that isn’t as much of an issue as it was. I find it seems to work better in a back pocket or if I have a cargo type pocket. So I’m going to give it a higher rating.

Works well, some limitations,
This review is from: Pedusa PE-771 Tri-Axis Multi-Function Pocket Pedometer (Black with Holster/Belt Clip)
Owned for some months now. Have found it is only accurate when walking on a flat surface, like around the neighborhood or the track. It appears to simply sense movement and assume you are walking at a set pace. It doesn’t really count steps like older pedometers with an internal contact. On hikes which go uphill or downhill, it can be inaccurate, it thinks you are going faster and hence farther than actual distance. Distance has been 20-30% longer than actual when going up and down trails. And when running, it can undermeasure distance. So it works well for regular walks, so-so for other things. I still use it all the time. It was inexpensive, but been very durable, it now has scratches all over it, but it still works and I haven’t lost it because it’s in my pocket.
Owned for a few weeks now, very impressed.
The reset button does not go off easily, one must press and hold it for about five seconds. Relatively large display of numbers I like.
The “manual” it came with is just a little piece of paper, but has the needed info.
