To help increase overall movement throughout the day, most fitness trackers measure total steps taken (similar to a pedometer).
Sometimes an engineer carries what is called a pedometer in his pocket, which tells him how far he has walked.
The purpose of the pedometer, as its name shows, is to measure the children.
Distance, by guide-book, twelve miles; by pedometer seventy-two.
I glanced furtively at my pedometer, and found I had made 47 miles.
"Ten rounds of the promenade deck make a mile," said my room-mate consulting his pedometer.
Against this there is the check of the pedometer or some other automatic measure for distance covered.
I took out my pedometer, but it still marked twenty-five, not a degree more.
This instrument was no doubt the father of the pedometer and the cyclorama, just as the boy is frequently father to the man.
Against this the pedometer offered a check, and the compass gave the course.
