Here is how your pedometer will work. In order for it to count your steps properly it will need to be clipped to your waist right by your hip. After that all you have to do is walk and pedz will do the rest of the work. If you stop moving for more than a few minutes the screen will go blank; no need to worry it is just conserving battery life and will resume counting as soon as you start moving.
On the tadpole model the eyes serve as buttons that will change modes and reset the counter back to zero. The left eye will changes modes from steps to miles, kilometers and calories. The right eye will reset the device. On the Frog model the buttons on on the hands. The function the same as the tadpole model, the left button will change functions and the right will erase everything.
