NEW-LIFESTYLES Pedometers and Accelerometers (use this link to view photos of all accelerometers and pedometers on one page) are considered by researchers to be among the best in the world, if not the best. We have three series from which you may choose--the NL-series, the SW-series and the AT-series. All of these have been independently validated and have been found to be extremely accurate and reliable. According to independent validation studies how do pedometer brands rate?

*These features require and must be enabled by the PAAS Lifestyle Coach (software), i.e. to see these features on the display of the Lifecorder PLUS, one must purchase the PAAS Lifestyle Coach (software) and enable them via the PAAS Lifestyle Coach (software).
**The CW-300 and its siblings--the CW-200, CW-600, CW-701--have not been independently validated to be accurate or reliable. The only testing currently done was performed by the manufacturer--YAMAX.
***The activity time function offered by the CW-300 and the AT-85 pedometers should not be confused with the moderate-to-vigorous physical activity time (MVPA timer) function on the NL-1000, NL-2160 or NL-2200 accelerometers; pedometers can not measure acceleration. They simply respond to acceleration and therefore pedometers do not provide the data necessary to calculate time spent in light, moderate, or vigorous physical activity.
