Studies show that during the past 20 years there has been a dramatic increase in obesity in the United States. Unhealthy eating habits and the lack of exercise are seen as two of the contributing factors leading to the growing number of obesity among children and adults alike. Between healthy eating and exercise, the latter seems to be more difficult to maintain especially if you have no accurate means of measuring your fitness level. Unless you hire a professional trainer to guide you in every step of your walking or running regimen, you'll need a little device that will help you monitor your physical activity.
If walking is your only means of losing weight, you'll need a digital pedometer to count every step you take. In the book, Healthy Carb Cookbook For Dummies (Jan McCracken), and in other existing literatures about pedometer, the device is said to have been conceptualized by Leonardo da Vinci as early as the 15th century. Around that time, the pedometer he designed consists of a gear-driving device with a pendulum arm that moved back and forth with every swing of the leg during walking. In 1965, pedometers hit the commercial market in Japan under the name manpokei which means "10,000 steps meter" in Japanese.
Today digital pedometer is used by many fitness enthusiasts and people who want to lose weight, as it helps count the steps they take in walking. Walking offers health benefits which include reduced risk of type 2 diabetes, improved mood and blood circulation, and lower blood pressure, to name a few.
