Pedometers: Hampstead Walkers Have Their Say

We’ve been road-testing – or perhaps pavement-testing would be more accurate – a few pedometers over the first few days of January2014 on our London Walks. And our London Walkers have been joining in…

Last Sunday on the Hampstead walk, two London Walkers – both from the United States – swore by the Fit Bit.

Small and discreet, it’s worn on the wrist and measures steps, heart-rate and calories. Some models even chart sleep patterns as part of charting an overall health picture.

It alerts the wearer when targets have been met – presumably with a buzz or vibration because one of our Walkers says she always announces her target alert with the words “There’s a party on my wrist!”

At the end of the walk, one of the walkers informed me: "I've burned off my breakfast."
