    I'd never heard of it and i've just had a look. It looks ok but seems a waste of money if im honest!

    I used it for a fair while. It was fun. Got bored with try to beat my targets each week, which were becoming increasing wild and had to stop using it because it started dominating my life :confused:

    The perfectionist in me took over and before I knew it, an hours walking was still not good enough. Instead of enjoying a nice walk in the sunshine, I was pressurizing myself to get out (yet again) to do another 1,000 steps..just to get to the goal.

    I stopped using it and started enjoying my walks again.

    But as I say, it was fun for a while and motivated me during that period.

    I did find it very accurate compared to other peds that I had, and handy that it worked well just having it in my pocket. I didn't use the website very much, just for the uploading the new challenges and recording the steps. Not for the calorie recording as I had better software for that.
