Where can I buy a Step Counter?

Step counters are only for sale to participants in the 2016 Step Challenge. This challenge has now ended. Please do not buy step counters unless you are paying for funds outstanding from the September/ October 2016 event.

If you wish to buy a step counter, please first check with your coordinator first that she/he has some in stock – only a limited stock is available.  For purchase through the PayPal link scroll down, or you might like to consider the following additional options for counting your steps:

  1. You can use your preferred app or wear a suitable Step Counter/activity tracker (e.g. you might have one from a previous challenge; or

Choosing a Step Counter

When choosing a step counter to buy, check that:

  • the battery will last at least a year
  • you can change the battery when it runs out
  • the unit clips securely to your clothes
  • the numbers are easy to see
  • you’re happy with the counter functions – some record steps only, others can record your activity over seven days, and let you adjust the sensitivity of your unit.
