F09678 - S2H STEP Active Reward Pedometer
Well - I could sure have used the motivation this pedometer was going to provide...but the pedometer was not accurate...It over estimated my steps..it was hard to set and reset. I didn't even bother claiming the prizes..the never ending struggle to lose weight continues.
Okay so the other reviews are right, this isn't the best quality of pedometer and it's not super sensitive. However, I love the motivating factor of earning something for consistently working out. Nothing motivates me, but since I got this I have been working hard to reach my ten thousand steps per day, just with the thought of earning some sort or reward. I know internal motivators are better, but sometimes it takes the external motivator to jump start you lol! That said, I have had to replace the battery already. But customer service has also been pretty helpful although their response time is kind of long. I also bought one for my sister who had a hard time activating her pedometer and needed to contact customer service 2x to make it work. However, they did get back to her within a day of the second request and she is excited to start earning rewards!
I was so excited to get this, but it was difficult to set; the step counter is not accurate and the S2H website is difficult to navigate. I am VERY disappointed with this purchase. As with anything else, if you can't use it, then it's just a piece of junk. It's not worth the shipping to return.
I walked four miles and it gave a reading of six steps. Not accurate at all. I sent it back two days after I got it and received the full refund including the S&H.
one of the poorest purchases
This pedomenter was tried out for a day, and proved to be completely inaccurate and was returned.lgh147
It was difficult to set and does not keep an accurate count of steps.
Ups and downs..
I started with S2H a little over a year ago before the stepper was available. Being that I am defiantly more of a walker vs. a runner I was thrilled when this came out and was waiting for the price to drop before buying. HELLO QVC and thank you for the great deal. I was so excited when my S@H STEP arrived that I programmed it up and went straight to the treadmill to see how many steps my usual basement stroll would register. So trilled that it was just under 10,000 steps. Wore it around the house doing chores for a few hours and got my code. Entered the code and started the dreaming of a free Wii, gift cards or at least a ring tone here and there. Flash forward to day three... I thought I was getting close to a code so I checked to find I had 8900 steps. An hour later of chasing two kids around I knew I had to be close. WHAT 8900 steps!!! FROZEN and back it went to QVC. Hoping I got a dud and the next S2H STEP holds up a little better than 3 days of normal use. I'll be scared to get caught in the rain outside after this experience.
I ordered two of these. One for me and one for my husband. Just received them. Junk. You can sit and shake them and the Pedometer starts recording steps. It isn't accurate. You can sit on your couch and rack up the step count just by shaking it. Don't bother ordering this item. Both were sent back.
not true to step...
I recieved this product a few days ago an found its not true to your step.....I walk all day at work an know from past steppers I average around 11,000but with this I barely made 4,000. So I walked 20 steps counting the whole way an looked at the stepper an it recorded only 4 steps. It will be going back sad to say!
No ease of use
I bought 2, one for myself and one for my daughter. Sounded interesting on presentation, but really too much setting and resetting once you hit 10,000 steps. A code comes up and the stepper stops counting steps. So if it's mid-day the step count stops. You have to down load the codes and start over. Unless I am doing something wrong this is too much work when all I want is to keep tabs of my steps. So both are going back.
This item came yesterday and I made a mistake setting date and time. Could not reset after many hours of trying. Looked on the company's website for help but email request asked for phone number and email address. I was ok sending the email address but our phone is unlisted and they would not accept email without the home phone number. I am sending the item back because of the lack of communication with S2H.
a royal pain
It would have been nice if the video would have shown how to program this thing.I just got it out of the pack was sitting here trying to program it and it says I already walked 11 steps and I have never left the chair yet.
