4.0 out of 5 stars Accurate right out of the box, not for walking, April 10, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Casio Men's SGW200-1VCF Pedometer Resin Strap Watch (Watch)
Even without adjusting the settings for stride length, this watch was pretty much dead on right out of the box. It may be that the default settings are set for an average person. I'm 5'8 and went on a run on a known distance course. When in the mode that showed step count, it picked up every step.

Seems to be geared for running, on page 55 of manual it says that the watch is designed to count steps while you are running. It will not count steps correctly while walking.It seems to work fine for steady walking while your arm is moving. But breaks do "confuse" it a little.
My experience with pedometers is limited. For running though, it works well.
Have used it for a few months now, very accurate. Used it on a 2 mile marked course and it was right on. Figured out how to switch between displays, so previous post was corrected. Overall a pretty good alternative to the GPS and/or foot pod setups.

Agreed, it is more accurate when running. If you walk a few steps and look at the watch, you won't see anything. Looking at the watch stops the swinging effect and so the counting is aborted. The watch works fine for long walks, but not if you make very frequent stops.

I got this watch from my wife. I set up the stride length at 138cm based on a 50 meter run. I am 5.7 However when I run it marked 6.8 km but the distance using google earth was around 6k. So I was wonder if u have had this problem. Thanks
