Oregon Scientific's pedometer is an affordable high-techfitness tool packed with functions. It's very lightweight (which isgreat when exercising), and doesn't provide a distraction while theworkout is in progress. Though light, it is still very durable, andonce it's clipped to a waistband there's no need to worry about itslipping off. It computes and displays distance walked, number of stepstaken, calories burned, and time of day--all displayed with backlitillumination of the screen for easy viewing--and measures 2-1/2 by1-1/4 by 1-1/2 inches. This pedometer runs on 2 LR44 batteries. --A.J. Rathbun ... Read more

  • Almost weightless

4-0 out of 5 stars Can't beat the price
I'm recovering from back surgery and wanted a way to know--rather than guess--how close I come to meeting my daily walking goals. This comparatively inexpensive pedometer doesn't achieve perfection, but it does get the job done.

On the up side, it's small, easy to read and includes a user-controlled back light. The belt clip is extremely secure, and the screen displays everything from actual steps walked to total distance and calories burned. It was easy to adjust the stride length and body weight. My steps are tracked accurately with the "sensitivity" slider control set in the middle, rather than all the way to the left as many other reviewers suggest. I have learned that there is a bit of wiggle room on mine--if I count off 20 steps, it might say 19 on one set and 21 on the next. In the long run--I bothered to count all the way to 100 several times--it was spot on.

On the down side, the cover is extraordinarily difficult to open. Difficult as in I have wrestled with it for nearly five minutes just to pop it open. (I now don't close it quite securely. It doesn't fall open.) And I can see some folks might be bothered by the imprecision over short term counting. And for some reason, if I clip it to a pants pocket, rather than on a belt loop or my waist band, it doesn't seem to read anything at all. I have no clue why this is so, but it is a little disapointing.

Considering that every other pedometer I looked at was more than twice the price of this model, I'm astonished at how well it works. Perfectionists will likely prefer a more expensive version, but for short term use, casual interest, easy-going folks or even something to help get the kids more active, you can't go wrong.

2-0 out of 5 stars Great price...Accuracy? Not so much.
The price of this product is what sold me comparing to other pedometers. I bought it being aware of the problems other reviewers have stated. The "happiness" ratio seems about 40% at best. The thumb clip has been problematic but you can work around it. But is that what you want in a product? The biggest flaw I have found is in its accuracy. After several tests of 50 steps the unit averaged being "off" by being over 40 steps...on the lowest sensitivity. Disappointing. I wouldn't mind it being off by being under because I would exercising more and thats good. But this way I feel like its cheating me at the cost of my health. I will continue to use this unit but I will be on the lookout for a new unit. I can not make a recomendation for this product.

4-0 out of 5 stars Sore thumb, yes, but otherwise ginchy
I've had mine for two days and agree with the others about the painful thumb button on the locking mechanism. I just shaved the little plastic catch down a little with an Xacto knife: problem solved.

The step counts seem accurate to me and I haven't noticed any spurious ones while the unit was sitting on a table or anything. I believe there are defective ones out there, but mine seems fine.

I'd recommend it, and I'd recommend shaving or sanding that little plastic ridge down to save the tip of your thumb!

5-0 out of 5 stars It's great!
I bought this item about 3 months ago and LOVE it. I saw some reviews where people complained that it counted steps when they weren't moving and didn't count steps when they were moving. I had some of this trouble too and found that it was usually where I placed the pedometer. You just have to experiment some to find the best place to put it for how you move (including how you move when you're sitting at your desk).

I have tested it out several times to check for accuracy--counting my steps as well as those on my pedometer. This may seem a bit manic, but I manually counted out more than 500 steps in a couple of these times. In all cases, the pedometer was right on with my count (occasionally it was off by one or two steps only).

1-0 out of 5 stars My aching thumb!!!
I'm not sure just how accurate this pedometer is. I've been SITTING in front of my computer since I put it on and it reads 141 steps so far and I have it on the lowest sensitivity level.

More importantly, the tip of my right thumb is killing me from wrestling with the lid to get it open. The release button doesn't push in and release anything. You auctually have to use your thumb to pry it open.

I will try using it tomorrow without closing the lid, but this seems to be a bit ridiculous.

Oh, It now reads 148 steps... ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Works well but strap is too big
I used to have a Polar heart monitor but lost the watch. I decided to go with this model because it's less expensive. I have an average women's size body and the adjustable strap that goes around your chest is too big for me. Since the smallest that the strap adjusts to is too big, I have it adjusted with a bunch of the strap material flopping around on my back (I didn't have this problem with Polar). It's annoying and will require a sewing experiment some time soon. The heart monitor part works well though. Mine came with a neato bag and bike or exercise equipment holder for the transmitter (watch). ... Read more

This lightweight belt-clip pedometer counts steps and checksyour pulse--all in a unit about half the size of a yo-yo. Customizablefor weight and stride length, the pedometer tallies up the steps takento calculate distance covered and calories spent. With dual motionsensitivity, it's accurate whether you're jogging or walking. It alsosports a finger-pad pulse meter that delivers readings in seconds, a12- or 24-hour clock, and a 99-hour count-up timer. The clip-on hingedcase is clever and strong, but the function buttons are a little on thesmall side. All the same, this device is convenient, lightweight, andunobtrusive. Oregon Scientific includes a low-battery indicator, aluminescent blue backlight, and printed instructions inside the lid.--Emily Bedard ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars This pedometer is great!!
I read lots of reviews before I bought this pedometer. The pedometer I had was awful, and I wanted to find one that worked really well. The PE316PM got some great reviews from customers on several web sites, so I bought it. I have now used this model daily for over a year, and I love it! I would recommend it to anyone. If you set the motion sensitivity adjustment properly it is almost always dead-on accurate. Walk 100 steps, and it reads 100 steps. It has never been wrong by more than 1 step, plus or minus. Any inaccuracies experienced by other users are probably due to not setting the motion sensitivity (VERY IMPORTANT), not entering their personal weight (their HONEST weight) and stride measurement settings, or not wearing it properly. The instructions tell you how to do this, but you do have to READ the instructions carefully! The instructions indicate that there is a metric model as well as the one with miles and pounds, so the person complaining about the wrong type of measurements simply bought the wrong model. (That's not the pedometer's fault.) The instructions also tell you how to open the cover, which is easy enough to do if you use two hands as you are told to do. I'm glad it has a tight cover because my previous pedometer's cover constantly fell open while I was walking and then didn't count the steps I took when it was open. (A very easy-to-open cover is not necessarily a good feature!) The pulse meter works as well as any other pulse meter I've ever used, but it sometimes takes a couple of tries to get it to read the pulse. I find varying the position and pressure of my finger usually solves that problem.

My pedometer has accidentally fallen on the floor several times, and it fell in water once. There was no damage to the plastic casing, even when if fell on a hard surface. (This can, however, turn off the display, and require resetting it. But this rarely happens.) It still works perfectly even after these accidents, and I put sticky-back Velcro inside the clip to make it hold better on my thin exercise clothing. It hasn't fallen off my waist since then.

I really like this pedometer. It has made a big difference in my exercise program. It is very compelling to see the number of steps go up and up as you walk farther and farther. It makes you want to keep walking to go on to the next round number, so you walk farther than you would otherwise. (You won't stop at 9,345 steps... you'll go on to 10,000. It's like wanting to see your car's odometer change to the next thousand miles.)

If you read the instructions carefully and set everything properly (including the motion sensitivity), then you should find this pedometer to be an excellent buy for the money. At under $20, if it has a problem after a couple of years, it's easy to just buy a new one. $10 a year to maintain your health is certainly worth it! I'm a very satisfied customer.

1-0 out of 5 stars not accurate
I bought this pedometer and I usually read all reviews on amazon before I buy things. I don't know if nobody had reviewed it when I purchased it or what because I would not have bought it with all those bad reviews. Anyway...I have not had accurate readings with this pedometer. It might be because I run with it instead of walk but even when trying to test it around the house walking it does not seem acurate. I have also e-mailed the company several times from their web site with no response yet. I also agree with it being hard to open the cover. when you are running and want to look at your progress it is almost impossible to open the cover without messing up the reading (That is inaccurate anyway so what does it matter)

1-0 out of 5 stars Bad speciications
On the operation manual everything is metric, is false, on my pedometer every is Emperial.
Pulse meter does not work.

1-0 out of 5 stars Read the reviews before buying this product
I received one of these as a gift, and immediately came across the problems highlighted in the product reviews above. I never knew about these reviews until I came across them while trying to find out how to return this gift (so at least some good came out of it) When you close the lid, it is almost impossible to open the lid without damaging the unit. The plastic shell is a very poor design, and I hold little hope of a replacemet unit solving the problem

1-0 out of 5 stars Worse product I ever spent money on┬┐..
Cover broke after 3 months; the battery falls out too way to easy.

It's a bad engineering design. Customer service has a backlog of cover replacements. It is plastic and its on the flimsy side, the device is essentially worthless and now my unit is sitting on my desk gathering dust now.

I had called, wrote and emailed customer service numerous times for months with no response. I'm sure I'll buy never buy another one of these or any products made by/from Oregon Scientific the way they treat their customer base.

Amazon.com Review

For athletes, dieters, or others who need to monitor their bodyfat on a regular basis, this handheld, compact, pocket fat analyzerworks from any location. Other methods of calculating body fat can bemore expensive or require special equipment, but the pocket fatanalyzer measures both body fat ratio and Body Mass Index (BMI) fromyour fingertips. To begin, users must first enter personaldata—-weight, height, age, and, gender—-into the device. Then, from astanding position, users must hold the fat analyzer at a 90-degreeangle and place their thumbs and index fingers on the electrodes. Usingthe bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA), the device passes anundetectable 50 kHz current through the fingertips into the body. Thecurrent distinguishes what portion of the body does not contain waterand, therefore, has the properties of fat. The bioelectrical impedancereading is then calculated with the personal data to produce the bodyfat ratio. The pocket fat analyzer remembers personal data and the lastmeasured body fat level for up to nine different people and can be setto store multiple body fat ratios for each person. When not evaluatingfat, the device doubles as a 24-hour alarm clock with five differentalarms and also works as a 60-minute or 60-second timer. The pocket fatanalyzer runs on two AAA batteries, which are included.--Cristina Vaamonde ... Read more

  • Measures body fat ratio and Body Mass Index (BMI)

1-0 out of 5 stars would not buy it again.
The pulse is difficult for me to get it to show my pulse and takes a long time , IF it does work. I got it for the pulse and do not like use it because of the fact that it takes to long. It does not cost alot and if you have the time, it is a cheap buy. One of my kids tried and it said they had not trouble with it. It just doesn't work well for me.

1-0 out of 5 stars Worthless
I too found this item to not perform as promised. When I first purchased it I thought I had a defective unit so I returned it for a new one. The new one has not worked any better. The readings are not at all accurate, either very low or very high. Much of the time it doesn't give a reading at all. I purchase this to use at the gym while doing my cardio workout. Its been sitting in my gym bag for months now as its not worth the effort to take it out. I'm really shocked at how poor this device is as I own several other Oregon Scientific products and have always been happy with them.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't bother, it's cheap but it's useless
I purchased this device on the fly while looking for a pulse rate watch. The closest competetion was $50 plus so I thought I'd give it a try. One click buy later I decided to read the reviews! Wow how bad could it be for [item price]? Well, today I received it, the battery was dead and after trying to replace it , a small spring popped out. Ten minutes later I'm still wrestling with it and finally get it together! Then I find another even smaller spring! This review is the last bit of time I will spend on this small poorly designed product. I will read the reviews before I "One Click" next time!

1-0 out of 5 stars Do not buy this!
Most of the time, the pulse meter does not read my pulse at all. On the rare occasion that it does manage to give a reading, it gives an absurdly low (and obviously wrong) one. I was looking forward to improving my workout efficiency with this gadget, and am sorely disappointed.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not worth the effort!
I have already quit using the product and now manually count my pulse on my wrist using the second hand of a watch. I was able to achieve reliable readings while sitting still at my desk, but if one is running, bicycling, speed walking, etc. I found it almost impossible to get an accurate reading on a consistent basis. If you want accuracy and convenience, spend more money and get a more complex and reliable monitor. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Tracks Steps and Mileage Correctly
I purchased this item to track my daily walks. To my surprise, it counts my steps very Accurately. The pedometer, allows you to change the stride distance to match your average step. I used a odometer to measure a mile and then I walked the distance, and set the stride to match the mile. After this was done, the pedometer measures the distance almost to the exact step. I have used it for a month and I have not had any problems with it.
The only reason that I did not give it a 5 star is that the FM radio has a prescan station botton and there are only about 5-6 stations that it will pick up, but it also is determined by your location. I would recommend this product, it has performed very well for me.

2-0 out of 5 stars What Calorie Counter?!?!?
This product (Oregon Scientific PE316FM Pedometer Calorie Counter with FM Radio) doesn't have a calorie counter?? Looks like false advertising to me.

1-0 out of 5 stars Price is cheap and so is the product
The radio actually never worked on this pedometer, which was OK as that was really an 'added bonus'. However the pedometer itself has stopped working after two months of use. It hasn't been dropped, it hasn't got wet...it has just stopped. Perhaps it is the batteries, but it's such a plastic, little toy, I don't want to waste the money on buying new batteries. You get what you pay for.

1-0 out of 5 stars not so good
I bought this a few months ago and I was pretty disappointed. It doesn't say anywhere in the instructions what all of those numbers mean. I have emailed and called the Oregon Scientific Customer Service office and they have not yet responded. I still have lots of weight that I need to lose. I am especially heavy up top and am impatient about getting rid of my manb--bs. The radio is good, though, so I gave this one star.

1-0 out of 5 stars broken!
Although it kept time (which indicates the batteries were good) this didn't work the first day I used it. It worked the second day. It stopped working by the third day AND the battery cover broke off sometime during the day and was lost. This was a complete waste of $19. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars practically worthless
To my great disappointment this gadget is a real hassle to use -- it frequently "resets" itself and the alarm is not well designed for any practical use in an emergency. Not recommended!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great buy
I gave this 4 stars just because it's my first pedometer so not a lot of experience with them - it had clear instructions which allowed me to set my stride length and weight to calculate distance and calories burned. It also allows you to set its sensitivity so that it only counts your walking steps. I found that it doesn't reset itself unless you press the reset button - if you find yourself doing that, switch it to the cal/distance settings - then only the timer (it has a start/stop timer feature!) is affected - distance, calories and steps aren't reset.

1-0 out of 5 stars Total Waste of Money
I totally agree with a previous reviewer - it counts movements when there are none, continually, and keeps resetting the total, over and over. I bought this one for the safety cord because I kept dropping the Sportline 360 which I love otherwise but I have broken (3) and lost (1).

Needless to say, the cord is useless because I no longer bother to use it at all. A huge disappointment.

2-0 out of 5 stars Batteries not easy to find...
This pedometer requires 3 batteries to operate. It takes 2 LR43 batteries and 1-12 volt battery. It comes with the batteries initially, but the replacement batteries aren't easy to find. I had success at an 'all batteries' store.

1-0 out of 5 stars Worthless
This was a waste of money. It was a little more expensive than my first model of pedometer but seemed to have some good features. Unfortunately, the step counter was completely inaccurate. It would rack up hundreds of steps while I was sitting at my desk. It would reset itself about two or three times per use. I had to check it every 20 minutes or so and try to keep a running total in my head in case it "reset" itself. I was so frustrated with the inaccuracy of the thing, I finally tossed it. ...

I recently purchased this ...and much to my surprise, it arrived with weak batteries, I never even got one salinity check. It did have batteries as the lcd display flashed numbers. I contacted Oregon Scientific and requested that they delivery more batteries; they would not.
I expect to get some life out of a newly purchased product and I'd think that Oregon Scientific would either deliver a functioning product or say batteries needed. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Another One w/ a Dead Battery
I had to write in and share my displeasure at this product as well. Like the other reviewers, I also received my watch with a dead battery and had to pay an additional $5 dollars to get the thing to even work. Additionally, changing the battery is a wicked chore since you have to take the entire watch almost completely apart. The instruction manual is VERY difficult to understand! I'm currently shopping for a heart rate monitor for my wife and this time I must say that I will definately choose the POLAR product instead.

4-0 out of 5 stars Oregon Scientific HR318 Trainer Pro Heart Rate Monitor
The name of this item SHOULD give it's purpose away. It TRAINS you to lower and RAISE your heart rate artificially by such means as modern "must haves" like a HRM. that just don't work well. And come with lousy instructions. And battery with no shelf life
By the way, DESPITE it's shortcomings, this item is very accurate. The lady next door pointed out to me when she saw my Oregon Scientific HR318 Trainer Pro Heart Rate Monitor on my wrist that when the screen goes blank, you have actually EXPIRED. At least the paramedics pointed that out to be the case with her husband who had a major coronary. I'm just pointing out the accuracy of the item not a cause and effect.
I'm no M'cedes owner but doesn't the 500 series come with a HRM's for the whole family as standard equipment?
I can't believe how fickled this audience is. I have reported the same problems as other reported and it seems I'm being chastised for it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Run like an Egyptian
This HRM is a complete waste of money... well, unless you're educated in deciphering hieroglyphics and don't mind buying previously opened products. The instruction manual is a joke (hence the comment), the included batteries are dead (another $5 purchase just to get it to work), and getting everything set up requires the intuitive guile of MacGyver- not to mention tools found only at a watch repair shop (you need to remove the wrist bands to get to the battery).
Right now Amazon is having a special on the Polar M71ti- which has a few less features and a more advanced fitness purpose, but comes from a more respected company. Think about it this way, a Yugo and a Mercedes are both cars, but which one would you rather go the distance with?
And now the Mercedes is now on sale for roughly the same price as that iniquitous econobox (about $10 more because of CA sales tax); not to mention that this Oregon Scientific model resembles something out of a Yugoslavian industrial design center.
Go with the Polar, and as a bonus, it looks great- just like you will after a few months of using it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Update after 2 months
Update: Don't Buy This Item. I just had to come back and update my review. I've been using this monitor for 2 months and last night the display kept blanking out. The useless manual indicates that when the battery is getting low you get a warning. I received no warning. I called the Oregon help desk and they siad "change the battery". As noted by the other reviewer changing the battery requires removing the band (which isn't easy, and harder to replace). Now my display works but 2 of the buttons don't and I can't change the time !!!

I just received my monitor. The user documentation is extremely poor. The manual has very small print and not written very well. You have to continually flip back and forth as all of the figures are in the front part of the manual. I also had a heck of time trying to figure out how to get the monitor to start showing my pulse. In theory when the little heart shows up on the display you should be able to see your rate. Note...it doesn't always seem to show up nor have I figured out why. It would be nice if the manual gave you an indication of what to expect. For example it will show 68 beats, I'll stand up and it can go up to 80 or higher (and I work out every day, including aerobics). The rate seems to bounce around alot. I did compare the values with against another device I have and they did match. Also the old take your own pulse for 10 secs and multiply collaborates pretty closely. I was just surprised at how much it varies literally within seconds. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Consistent
Unlike any other digital scale I have ever tried (maybe five or six) this scale is consistent. I step on, get my weight, step off, then step back on and I get the same weight to the nearest two-tenths of a pound. I personally don't like the color, but that is personal and doesn't affect the quality of the scale. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars SAVE YOUR MONEY! ...
www.Amazon.com recommended this in my Gold Box. I like to work out and I like the ability to read my heart rate while I do various exercises. I currently use a Nike watch which requires you wear a band around your chest. I bought this item thinking I could quickly put my thumb on the pad on the watch and read my heart rate without wearing the Nike heartband.

This worked probably 20% of the time when I tried to read it. I tried different levels of pressure but still had no real success. In addition, this is [not the best] constructed watch I have ever seen. Not to mention that it is big and cumbersome destroying your desire to wear it while you exercise.

I made a big mistake by not immediately sending this back. It's poor quality material plus lack of sensitivity on the pulse gage should make you run for cover and NOT take the chance to buy this watch. Trust me, I'm doing you a favor. ... Read more

My wife is about to have a baby, and I bought this to keep track of contractions that will hopefullly begin soon. I like this stopwatch, it is light, fairly easy to use. The instructions need some help. There are times when you need to hold one button and then press another. The directions do not convey that very well.

In the end, I am glad I bought it, it works very well. ... Read more
