Accupedo pedometer, to motivate yourself to walk
The free Accupedo application has a first considerable advantage: it effectively filters movements. In other words, she is able to distinguish the movements you make while walking, which allows her to provide an accurate count of your steps. Another significant advantage: its interface is simple. In addition to the number of steps taken, it shows you the total distance covered and estimates the number of calories burned during the effort. And if your motivation falters, you’ll appreciate his daily messages of encouragement!
Simple and effective, the StepsApp Pedometer application offers you an automatic step count, measures the total distance traveled and provides an estimate of the calories you have expended. This free application offers a beautiful interface, very readable and intuitive. Unlike Accupedo, which is intended for the most recent smartphones , StepsApp is compatible with all devices. On the other hand, it is very slightly less precise, and it can confuse a swing of the arm with a step, which slightly skews the results. Know it
From race management to social media, there are a wide variety of applications. If you don’t want to download an additional app on your smartphone, use the free Google Fit app as a pedometer. The application offers very advanced features: it can take the place of a real sports coach! However, nothing prevents you from using only the step count function. Be careful, however: Google Fit must be updated regularly in order to be reliable.
