You don't need to switch off your pedometer. In fact, it goes into sleep mode after 5 minutes of inactivity. It "wakes up" automatically as soon as you start walking or when you press one of the buttons.
To obtain accurate walking data, it's important to wear your pedometer correctly. Wear the pedometer to the side of your belt or waistband. Wearing your pedometer in any other position will give incorrect readings.
There are 2 ways of setting your stride length on your Geonaute pedometer: automatically (AUTO) or manually (MANU). This setting is applied in the 'Set' menu of your pedometer.
AUTO: Depending on your height, the pedometer will automatically calculate your stride length using a patented Oxylane algorithm.
MANU: For the most accurate results, you can enter your stride length manually.
To measure your stride length: Walk 10 metres, counting the number of steps you take, then use the following formula: 10 metres/number of strides = length of stride
Your pedometer automatically resets at midnight each day. That's why you need to set the time so that it knows when to reset.
Inaccurate readings on your pedometer may be caused by several factors:
- an incorrect stride length setting. If this is set to 'AUTO' mode, we recommend that you set it to 'MANU' mode.
- if you are using your pedometer for an activity other than normal or fast walking, e.g. running, hiking etc.
Your pedometer is designed for normal walking and brisk walking. The algorithms used to calculate calories and distance etc., are not designed to track running or elevation changes. These values will therefore be inaccurate.
Power walking is walking at a sustained pace which is extremely beneficial for your health. Your pedometer automatically determines your threshold for power walking, depending on your weight and height. The taller you are the faster you need to walk to reach this threshold. Geonaute pedometers calculate your active walking time.
You can also reset all values on your pedometer by holding down the left and right buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds.
