The mechanism to register each step just is not sensitive enough unless you bounce up and down on each step which is NOT normal. In trying it, it may record 2 or 3 out of every 20+ steps even though I have put it on my belt and also clipped to my pants at the waist making sure it is flat as the instructions require. The clip is strong and holds but the counter is useless as received.
