Introducing the NEW Just Released Yamax Digi-Walker 3 Directions accelerometer sensor pedometer.
Don't be fooled by the name - this pedometer is not just for the Power
Walker, it's also the perfect partner if you are just starting a health program!
This is a very different pedometer than any pedometer you may have already
used. The Yamax Power Walker uses a 3D acceleration sensor and does not use the
usual pendulum mechanism. (no more annoying clicking noises!)
What is an acceleration sensor?
Even though the use of an acceleration sensor may be new to a pedometer - it
is certainly not a new invention - many of us may be using it now...Check out
the following paragraph to understand the most common
The most significant use of accelerometers
is in the deployment of vehicular airbags, which are designed to trigger when
the accelerometer determines that the vehicle's rate of speed has significantly
dropped off. In a similar vein, accelerometers can be used to switch on special
braking systems when a vehicle appears to be spinning or tilting out of control.
Accelerometers are also commonly used to protect fragile pieces of equipment.
Vehicles can use the information provided by accelerometers to reduce strain on
their internal workings when going over bumpy or windy roads, and many laptop
computers are now equipped with sensors which take protective physical measures
(such as sealing off the hard drive) to mitigate the damage if they detect that
the computer has been dropped.

You do not wear it on your waistband!
You can place it in...
Trouser pocket (not back pocket as you may damage it)

have tested it around the neck and its works just as good!
All these methods
will produce an accurate step reading.
