I am somewhat surprised this still exists.

Two days ago I received a small gift when attending a Lenovo event. This is a step counter. You charge it via USB and set the date and time. Then you just put it in your pocket and forget about it. It will count your steps and keep the data for a week. You can check your steps when you want to know. It will always show today and the last seven days.

And it does not upload the data into the cloud. How cool is that? Quantified self, and you get to keep the data.


Falls Du die Pebble noch hast, kannst Du auch noch mit dem On11 watchface spielen.

Aber egal wie Du es misst, bewegen musst Du Dich leider selber :-)

Nein, die Pebble gehört mir nicht, und ich habe sie schnellstmöglich zurückgegeben. Ich will auch nichts am Handgelenk haben.

For iPhone 5s users, there is a very simple app, which does the same. Nothing more then counting the steps, no cloud, no nonsense.

Sehr guter Hinweis! Danke.

The same functionality comes out-of-the-box on the Samsung Galaxy S4.

I use a Wii U Fit Meter, it's worth buying a Wii U for that alone...great fun.

As most of my articles roll off the front page rather quickly, I am making an archive of previous posts available here. You can also use the handy search box at the top of the page if you are looking for something particular.
