Introduction    top

There’s a simple question asked by runners, walkers, joggers, and anyone who moves. How fast am I going? Runners want to pace themselves, athletes are trying to train for events, and even on a day to day basis you might wonder how far you are travelling. There are various existing methods of measuring pace, including step counters, GPS units, and smartphone applications. Pedometers are a common method of tracking physical activity. However, many pedometers are self-contained units that are often out of sight and out of mind. Our wireless pedometer not only records steps, but sends this information wirelessly to a wrist-mounted module. This wrist unit provides users with easily accessible information about the number of steps they’ve taken, their pace, and the timing of their steps. The tracker also calculates and displays the speed at which the user if moving, given an average stride of the user.
