New Walking 3D Pedometer Launched By CSX
Do you want to improve your health, fitness and reduce the risk of diseases? There’s a simple solution: Go for a Daily Walk
The CSX Pedometer uses 3D silent walk sensor technology, it can be attached to anywhere comfortable - clip to a hip, inside a pocket, bag or purse using the included strong clip and strap so that the user can forget about it while the pedometer accurately monitors their daily activity.
"Walking is one of easiest and simplest forms of exercise available with studies showing many benefits including: Strengthens the heart, lowers disease risk such as diabetes and cancer, keeps weight in check, boosts vitamin D and tones the body," said Lee Sykes, managing Director of CSX, "We designed the CSX Pedometer to be a workout companion with features to encourage everyone to get active and stay active."
The multi function pedometer measures the daily steps taken, counts calories burned, tracks distance walked in miles or kilometres. Plus ‘Activity Time' shows the daily active time while walking. It also includes an automatic 7 day memory to keep the user motivated and track their progress.
To help the user reach their goals they can set a daily step target, the pedometer displays a progress bar which shows the progress towards the step target and also provides a LED and beep indicator when the target number of steps are reached.
A study led by Dr. Thomas Yates, from the University of Leicester in the UK and published in The Lancet, analyzed data collected from 9,306 adults from 40 countries. The study suggests that an extra 20 minutes of moderate exercise, such as walking, reduces the risk of heart attack and stroke by 8%.
The researchers noted the average number of steps each participant walked per day - as recorded by a pedometer - over a week at the start of the study and again 1 year later.
They found that participants who had increased their exercise by walking an extra 2,000 steps each day had a 10% lower risk of cardiovascular disease than the previous year.
Dr. Yates adds, "Our results provide novel evidence that changing physical activity levels through simply increasing the number of steps taken can substantially reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, such as heart attack and stroke. Importantly, these benefits are seen regardless of bodyweight status or the starting level of activity."
"Using a pedometer helps you to stay active, many people nowadays have a sedentary lifestyle, we drive to work, sit behind a desk in an office and then sit in front of the television at home. Having the convenience of just throwing the CSX pedometer in your pocket while it accurately tracks your activity helps you to see how much or little activity you do throughout a day. You can then start to make more informed choices, whether that is to walk to work, take the stairs, walk to the shops, etc. A little bit of activity throughout the day soon adds up to reach your daily target number of steps and that's what the CSX pedometer is all about – it's your exercise partner," said Lee Sykes, managing Director of CSX.
