If logo branded pedometers are a swag idea you’re considering, the variety of choices and styles can be overwhelming. If you search our site by the keyword “Pedometer” you’ll find over 150 choices!
Here’s a quick guide to the different types of custom pedometers and how they differ in functionality and price:
STEP COUNTERS – Lowest Priced, Most Basic Type of custom pedometer:
Step counters have a motion sensor that ‘feels’ when a step is taken and counts the steps on a simple display screen. They’re simple to operate, just press the reset button to start at zero and start walking!
The downside to this type of pedometer is that they don’t provide much information, just the number of steps taken between resets. That makes them less useful (and therefore less likely to be used) than ones with more robust features.
Step counting pedometers come in battery and solar-powered models, and in large-display models that are nice choices for Seniors or kids.
Step counting pedometers are the lowest priced, typically in the $2-$4 price range. The cheapest ones often come with a non-replaceable battery. If you choose those, be sure they include an auto shut-off feature for the longest useful life.
MULTI-FUNCTION PEDOMETERS: Step, Distance & Calorie Counters
Looking for a more accurate and sophisticated custom logo pedometer, which is more likely to be kept and used? The multi-function Step, Distance and Calorie Counter Pedometers are the next “step up”, in both features and price.
Custom logo multi-function pedometers like this Widescreen Walker allow the user to input their stride length for greater accuracy and have an easy to read LED display. They make it easy to track data over time since they measure the distance covered and number of calories burned between resets.
These come in battery and solar-powered models, in a variety of different styles. Multi-Function pedometers are typically gift-boxed with user instructions and are priced a little higher than step counters, with many good choices in the $3-$5 range.
DELUXE MULTI-FUNCTION: with Lights, Radios BMI & More!
Pedometers now come with lots of cool & useful features that go way beyond basic. The model shown above is great for walkers and runners; it records steps, distance & calories burned along with a built-in flashlight and super-loud 95db safety siren!
This fancy looking pedometer above measures steps, distance and calories, as well as BMI and body fat for up to 5 different users. There are also custom logo pedometers with built-in radios, built-in heartrate monitors and even pedometers with USB interfaces that transfer workout data directly to a computer!
Fancy, special-function pedometers start out in the $4-$5 range and can go up to around $20 for USB-compatible styles. These types of custom branded pedometers are excellent for corporate wellness or sports training programs, as the higher-end models also tend to be the most accurate. These also make a nice client, donor or patient gift for health-related companies or charities.
No matter which style of logo-branded pedometer you choose, there are a couple of things to keep in mind when ordering them. The biggest problem is usually the small imprint area. Some logos just don’t fit, or have too much text or detail to work on such a small item. That also means it’s hard to print much contact info on them, like phone numbers, long URLs, etc. It’s best to stick with a simple, one-color logo on this item.
