How do I set my stride length?

There are 2 ways of setting your stride length on your Geonaute pedometer: automatically (AUTO) or manually (MANU). This setting is applied in the 'Set' menu of your pedometer.

AUTO: Depending on your height, the pedometer will automatically calculate your stride length using a patented Oxylane algorithm.
MANU: For the most accurate results, you can enter your stride length manually.

To measure your stride length: Walk 10 metres, counting the number of steps you take, then use the following formula: 10 metres/number of strides = length of stride

How can I switch off my pedometer?

You don't need to switch off your pedometer. Indeed, it goes into sleep mode after 30 minutes of inactivity. It 'wakes up' automatically as soon as you start walking or when you press one of the buttons.

What is the correct way of carrying my pedometer?

Your pedometer is equipped with a 3D accelerometer which means it can be kept: in your pocket, on your belt or in your handbag.

How do I reset my pedometer?

You can reset your pedometer by pressing the central button for 1.5 seconds.


The readings on my pedometer seem incorrect or inaccurate. Why is this?

Inaccurate readings on your pedometer may be caused by several factors:
- an incorrect stride length setting. If this is set to 'AUTO' mode, we recommend that you set it to 'MANU' mode.
- if you are using your pedometer for an activity other than normal or fast walking, e.g. running, hiking etc.

Can I use my pedometer for running or hiking?

Your pedometer is designed for normal walking and brisk walking. The algorithms used to calculate calories and distance etc., are not designed to track running or elevation changes. These values will therefore be inaccurate.

What is the accuracy of my pedometer?

The Geonaute pedometers are accurate to within 5% for the stride count and within 10% for the distance measurement (pedometer located in the pocket).
Please note: Given that the distance measurement is linked to the stride length, the accuracy of the distance will be affected by the accuracy of the stride length.


How do I change the units of my pedometer (distance in metres or miles)?

To change the units of your pedometer, just go to the 'Set' menu and select the weight or height setting. You will initially be asked to set the measurement unit. Once you have set this unit, this will be used as the reference unit for all the values of your pedometer (weight, distance, height). Consequently, if you set your weight in pounds, the distance information will be displayed in miles.

My pedometer does not automatically reset to zero at midnight, what should I do?

The 'Auto reset' menu in the settings (Set) mode of your pedometer is used to enable or disable the function, which automatically resets the values of your pedometer at midnight. When this is disabled (OFF), the pedometer does not reset to zero at midnight. When this is enabled (ON), the pedometer automatically resets to zero at midnight.

I walk with my pedometer but there is no change in the reading on screen.

The stride count reading begins after 7 paces. Once you have completed 7 paces, the display is activated and the pedometer starts counting from 7. The pedometer does not take into account readings of less than 7 paces. This is to avoid counting peripheral movements and ensure the best possible level of accuracy.
