    Lacks one major feature

    Posted

    This is an expensive pedometer, and for $50 should have all of the features necessary for a serious walker/jogger. The problem with the unit is that it gives you credit for steps when you are driving. I contacted customer support, and they sent back a nice long answer that didn't address the problem. All they would need to do is to add a Pause setting, or a lock button to turn the unit off when you are riding in a car. I love the fact that I can drive for 20 minutes and get credit for 500 steps, but the reason I want a pedometer is to get an ACCURATE representation of the effort I have exerted. I used it for several weeks, but because +/- 30% accuracy is not acceptable, I have stuck it in a drawer, probably never to be used again.

    I am very happy with this pacer

    I was surprised how well this pacer works. It is rather accurate unless you have loose pockets which can damper the accuracy a bit. Also due to its sensitivity if you are driving it will think you are walking so I just reset it when I go to the gym. I tried it on the tread mill and it was off by about 10% which I think is pretty good. I didn't expect to treat the readings as gospel so give or take 10 percent is a good range for me.

    Doesn't Function Properly

    Product appears to be very well made with many interesting features including the tracking of information/charts on the MIO 3500 club site. Major problem is that unit counts steps/calories while traveling in a vehicle. Not suitable for normal use as is. Maybe the company can offer patches to product or not? Sync with PC and website seems to work. Look for other reviews to see if this expereince is typical for this unit or not?

    I bought the MIO Pacer 1/2012 and started haveing problems by March 2012. I was issued a replacement device which did no better. Mio upgraded their website and I was not able to get it to connect despite using alternative browsers. I would not recommend this product to anyone.

    Wasted my money. This thing is awful. It's not easy to use or set. It's too big and doesn't fit in the little plastic pocket thing that came with it. I got it into it by pusing and pulling, and had to cut the plastic thing to get it back out. Threw it out after that. The device is in my purse and I haven't used it once cause I can't figure out how to use it. AWFUL!!!

    I bought this because it can store seven days of data. I lightly bumped into my desk and it cracked in half in my pocket. It would be nice if it had a clip. Also records Amy arm movement as a step. I went for a 2 hour motorcycle ride and it logged 20,000 steps and the roads weren't bumpy.

    This lil' guy has everything I wanted and more. It's great to have a quick upload online and be able to track my progress, that's the real benefit! I've not had any issues in my car yet, but I know it has to be sensitive in order to count your steps properly.

    i love this pedo!!! I upload my graphs and tweet my results. There is even this funny facebook app to challenge your friends. If you like walking and want to interact with your social communities then this is perfect.

    I am enjoying this product. I like the fact I can put it in my pocket and forget about it. At the end of the day I know steps taken, calories burned, miles walked and how long it took. I love it

    I would not buy this again. I was very disappointed. The small plastic carrier that's included is a joke. I found that it is not accurate in tracking steps. I don't recommend this product.
