IMPORTANT
Read all instructions carefully before use.
To get the most accurate results from the pedometer, please
wear the unit as close to the center of your body as possible,
either on the center of your waistband or just to one side.
Notes before use:
1. Walk Mode
To get the most accurate reading in the walk mode, you must
walk at a fast enough pace so the pedometer can detect the
movement. If your walking speed is relaxed, the pedometer will
not detect movement and will not provide a reading.
2. Imperial (American) and Metric Units
The pedometer can be set to track data in either Imperial
(American) or Metric units. To select, open battery door and
push the selector switch to MILE for imperial units or KM for
metric units.
Note: Once you have selected the unit, you must reset the
pedometer by removing the batteries and replacing them.
Otherwise, the pedometer will remain tracking data in the original unit.
Quick Start

1. To enter normal timekeeping mode, press TIME. The time
appears on the display.
2. To enter time-setting mode, press and hold ADJ (adjust) for 2
seconds. The hour digits flash.
3. To adjust time to the current hour, press
or
repeatedly
until the desired hour appears on the display. You can set the
clock in either 12- or 24-hour format. (See detailed instructions.)
4. To confirm the hour, press ADJ. The minute digits flash.

Stride Length
You must set the measurement of your stride in Walk and Run
mode in order for the pedometer to calculate your speed, distance traveled and goal setting.
Determining Your Stride Length
When you walk or run, each step you take is a certain length.
That step/stride length must be entered into the pedometer so
that it can calculate distance and speed. Since your steps vary in
length, you must determine your average step length. The best
way to do this is to walk (for Walk mode) or run (for Run mode)
a given (measured) distance while counting the number of steps
that it takes to cover that distance. Then divide the known distance by the number of steps that it took to cover that distance.
A high school or college track works best, as that distance is
accurately measured. You can also use a car or a tape measure
Stride Length
to measure a given distance if you do not have access to a track,
but it will not be as accurate.
Example:
You walk once around a high school track. It takes you 524 steps
to go around once on the inside lane. The distance around the
track once is 400 meters which is 1,312 feet. Therefore 1,312
feet is your known distance. Now divide 1,312 feet by 524 steps
and the answer is 2.50 feet/step. Your stride length is 2.5
feet/step and that is the number that you will enter into your
pedometer. Repeat this process once more, this time running, to
calculate your running stride length.
Setting Your Stride Length
1. To enter the distance mode, press MODE twice.
2. To set the stride distance for Walk or for Run mode, press the
W/R (Walk/Run) button until the desired mode (“Walk” or
“Run”) appears on the display.
3. To enter the stride setting mode, press and hold ADJ (Adjust)
for 2 seconds. The numbers flash on the display.
4. To program the stride length, press
or
until the desired
Stride Length
length appears on the display. Imperial (feet) units advance in
0.25 intervals and can be set up to 9.50 feet. The metric
(meters) units advance in 0.05 intervals and can be set up to
3.00 meters.
5. Press ADJ again to exit this setting mode and return to the
Distance-Displaying Mode.
Notes:
•Stride can be individually set for Walk and Run.
•If a button is not pressed within 30 seconds, the unit exits the
stride-setting mode and returns to the distance mode.
Milestone Goal Alert
Distance Goal
This pedometer allows you to set a distance goal for walking or
running. The pedometer calculates the distance you run or walk
and a sequence of beeps tracks your progress and signals the
completion of your target distance.
Milestone Goal Alert
1. To select a milestone alert for distance, open the battery door
and slide the milestone selector switch to the “D” (DISTANCE) position. Replace battery door when finished.
2. To enter the goal-setting mode, press and hold W/R
(Walk/Run) and then press MODE at the same time. “Goal”
appears on the display.
3. To select a goal for either walking or running, press W/R
(Walk/Run) until the desired mode appears on the display.
4. To program the target distance, press and hold ADJUST for 2
seconds. The digits flash.
5. To select the target distance, press
or
until the desired
distance appears on the display. The distance increases or
decreases in increments of 0.5 (km or miles). The distance
can be set up to 99.50 (km or miles).
6. To confirm the distance and exit the goal setting mode, press
ADJUST. The unit returns to the normal timekeeping mode.
Notes:
•The milestone can be set in any mode except when the
pedometer is activated and running.
Milestone Goal Alert
•If a key is not pressed within 30 seconds, the unit exits the goalsetting mode and returns to the normal timekeeping mode.
Distance Goal Alert Sequence
•Every 1/2 mile or 1/2 km a beep sounds for half a second.
•Every 1 mile or 1 km a beep sounds for 1 second.
•When the milestone is reached, a beep sounds five times, each
for half a second.
Note: The beep can only be heard through the earphones while
the radio is on.
Time Goal
The pedometer allows you to set a time goal for walking or running. The pedometer activates a sequence of beeps to track your
progress and signals your completion of the target time.
1. To set a milestone alert for time, open battery door and slide
the milestone selector switch to the “T” (TIME) position.
Replace battery door when finished.

up to 9 hours and 50 minutes.
6. To confirm the time and exit the goal-setting mode, press
ADJUST. The unit returns to the normal timekeeping mode.
Notes:
•The milestone can be set in any mode except when the
pedometer (stopwatch) is activated and running.
•If a key is not pressed within 30 seconds, the unit exits the goalsetting mode and returns to the normal timekeeping mode.
Time Goal Alert Sequence
•For every 10 minutes you ran or walked, a beep sounds for half
a second.
Milestone Goal Alert
•For every 30 minutes you ran or walked, a beep sounds for 1
second.
•When the milestone is reached, the beep sounds five times,
each for half a second.
Note: The beep can only be heard through the earphones while
