Sandra, a long-time user of Activ8rlives, commented on her experience of the Buddy Step Counter: “I’ve had one of these step counters for almost 2 years and find it brilliant. I had previously used a normal pedometer and kept a record of steps done every day but with this one uploads the step count to the computer and so all the information is kept. The step counter also shows how many calories have been used and how many miles/kms walked. On the website you can join a forum/group and so encourage each other to achieve the targets, normally 10k steps per day.” Similar comments have been expressed by other Activ8rlives users: "Loving it, it really fits with what I want to do, lose some weight, get fitter and this is an all-in-one package. I'm enjoying the features and keeping track of things using the online tool too. I think this that is very good value for money." "I am delighted with the device which is very accurate but much simpler to use than other pedometers I have tried. The technical support in setting up was excellent and I received outstanding service when I subsequently contacted the sellers. I am about to buy my third Buddy step counter as they make very good presents. Thoroughly recommended!" "This is an excellent gadget for spurring you on to move more!! Easy to use and set up, compatible with computer to keep a data log of progress. Highly recommend." "Fantastic service. I received an email prior to delivery offering assistance in setting up, etc. product is exactly as described and seller is outstanding." - Ends – About Aseptika Limited (Activ8rlives): Aseptika Limited is a healthcare company developing and marketing an integrated suite of self-monitoring devices and services under the Activ8rlives brand.
