Summary: As I search the internet for information about this device I find the common negative thread that it just doesn't stay on you. Well the reason I was searching was because I had found one laying along the sidewalk. Obviously it had decided to abandon ship. Nothing broken, just a shame that they did not test the pedometer before marketing it. You would think an important test would be to see if the clip on pedometer actually stayed clipped on.
Summary: I've had this pedometer about two weeks, and have found it accurate and simple to use. As with other reviewers, however, I've had it slip off my belt more than once. Obviously the clip was not up to the task of holding it securely. Something had to be done. My solution was to tie a short, thin cord to the clip on the back, and tie the other end around a shiny, quarter-size washer. I slide the washer inside my waist band and clip on the pedometer.
Add another to the chorus who don't like how easily it falls off

Summary: So, I'm shopping for a new pedometer now because I had one of these and discovered that I had lost it as I was leaving the mall today. It's a shame, because otherwise it's a good pedometer -- I liked the ability to change between modes and easily reset the counter. While I never did any scientific tests to confirm the accuracy, I have checked the route that I walked on Google Maps against what the pedometer recorded and the results have been pretty close.
Summary: This supplier is HORRIBLE!!! First they sent the wrong pedometers. Then they sent the 2 corect ones, but one that does not work. I ordered this more than a month ago and I still don't have received the final replacement!!!
Summary: I was very excited to get this pedometer. I took it hiking for my first trial. I got to the end of the trail and checked to see how many steps I had gone. It told me I had only gone 20 steps! I noticed that it was slipping off my belt, so I secured it and continued my hike. Along the course of my day, I had the pedometer actually fall off and hit the ground at least 5 times. I got tired of picking it up and trying to keep it secured.
Summary: The step function works fine, but the pedometer falls off. I just started using it today and it falls off every hour or so. I am a regular sized person wearing normal jeans. This one is going back.
Summary: This pedometer constantly fell off..about once an hour at least.The clip doesn't have good gripping teeth and is not deep enough. Then the clear plastic cover kept coming off with the falls. Bits of leaves and dirt would get into the space between the plastic cover and the digital readout. I returned it.
Summary: I purchased this at Dicks and paid $15.99...I can't get it to stay on and it constantly resets itself. I am returning it TODAY! I never really got a chance to check it for accuracy, as it reset itself before I could even walk a mile!
Summary: Bought this pedometer 3 days ago, and it is going back to the store this evening. It falls off every time I move, and most of the time the fall causes it to break open. As a result, the protective cover no longer sticks.
