I decided to wear the Orbit for a week on the wristband and a week on the clip. My weeks are pretty routine, so I thought it would be a good way to compare the two options. On my first day I wore the Orbit, I was happy to see that I was taking well over 10,000 steps without even trying. Just my normal Tuesday routine (walking to and from the train station, to and from the gym and teaching my Bodypump class) clocked in at just over 15,000 steps! On Thursday, when I teach step aerobics, I almost reached 20,000 steps! I think there may have been some over-counting, but it was really exciting to be able to see my daily movement over the week.
When I switched over to the clip, I did notice that it seemed to be more accurately counting steps, but the problem with the clip is I would constantly forget it. I would leave it on the t-shirt I slept in or the pants I wore to work and would miss entire days of tracking. It also once fell off my clothing, hit the floor and reset the device, so I lost all of the data since the last sync. So while wearing the clip might be more accurate for measuring, it wasn't the best wear-method for me.
