The first day she received it, she was running around the house trying to get more steps than me (we couldn't run outside given that we were suffering from a -30 degree day in Wisconsin- ughh). This has given her a new outlook on exercise and is making it fun for her again (after a lull of harsh Wisconsin Weather).
We recently had an issue with the pedometer. I emailed the company on a Friday and within one hour I had a response and a solution to the problem. Which only made me more pleased with the purchase of this product. We plan on creating goals ourselves for our daughter to reach to earn more intrinsic rewards at home (mommy or daddy active dates, board game time, etc.) to help keep her motivated.
I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a reasonably priced pedometer for a younger child.
Once the new unit arrived, she has worn it non-stop. It has become a daily competition to see if she can beat her previous day's steps and if she can beat my steps.
The clip that comes on it is a bit tricky to get on, but the second unit we received had an alligator type clip. It is easier to get on, but also easier to lose.
She loves that the website virtually tracks how far she has walked and plots it onto Google maps. She has a goal of walking from Texas to Illinois before next summer when she will get to visit grandparents in IL. :)
Only drawback she has complained about is the minutes earned for games do not carry over to the next day. She only logs her steps just before bed, so she rarely gets to play any of the games because the minutes earned vanish.

We have now owned four of these; 3 which are still in our possession and working. Youngest daughter was the original owner and then oldest wanted one. Youngest lost her first one on a field trip as she would not wear the included tether, so I replaced with a 3 unit. Third unit got lost at recess, so we found a used one to replace it with. Of course then the 3rd unit was returned at school. Moral of this story is "wear the tether as it does help."
Oldest daughter lost hers but wasn't as motivated by it, so I hadn't replaced it (and she hadn't taken youngest daughter's spare). Lo and behold she found hers this morning....in the dryer. The device had gone through the washer and dryer and is still working! 850 "steps" in the washer and 5431 "steps" in the dryer. :)
