Striiv Smart Pedometer for Active Moms


I’ve had pedometers before—in fact, I’ve tried out a few in the last couple of months—but I’ve never been motivated enough to keep up with it.

Games, donations, the ability to race and challenge your friends, and share your progress online . . .just some of the great things about Striiv, a smart pedometer that makes it fun and exciting to walk and run.


The Striiv gets to know you over time, and gives you different activities and challenges that work with your level. I like that you can spin to randomize the challenges and that there are 3 levels, too.

I like how well the touch screen works—perfect for using your energy points (earned by walking or running) to buy plants and trees and structures in a game. For those people that like to compete against their friends and family to achieve particular goals, the Striiv works well for that, too.


I really like the quick challenges, and the way it keeps track of the number of steps you’ve taken in a day —comparing that number to the previous days’. Another great and unique thing about Striiv is that you can do a virtual walkathon and sponsors will donate real money to charities. I like to choose to have my donation put toward saving part of a rainforest, which really motivates me to get walking more each day.

This is a great gift idea for active moms, or ones that wish they were more active! The Striiv can be purchased from Amazon.comfor $99 and includes a clip to attach to your belt/pocket as well as a keychain attachment, so that you can always take it with you to record your steps.

Connect with Striiv on twitter and Facebook and check out all the motivated posters who are benefitting from using Striiv daily.

I was sent a Striiv Smart Pedometer for purposes. I was not compensated in any other way.

    Okay, I HAD a neat little pedometer- LOST IT. I like the fact that this one has a chain. I would not have lost the one I had if it had a chain. It is a nice little way to make you meet you goals. I was…. well let's just say I was well over 180 lbs. Got fit, am now 136! I can still lose about 10 more, I think. I did it by eating correctly, NOT starving myself, and by just walking! Walking fast, walking slow, but walking.

  10. I've only used the super-cheap pedometers and they don't work at all. This one looks great.

  11. Awesome Sight. Never learned so much about Paradometers

  12. Deb Dorrington says:

    This the best pedometer I have ever seen, much better than the one I am currently using. It's great that you can do a virtual walkathon and sponsor donate money to real charities, like how cool is that. Walking is still one of the best exercises to do and it's free.

  13. i like the keychain attachment…great idea!

  14. sarah oswald says:

    I love how user-friendly this seems to be. Looks like it could make being active more entertaining.

  17. Megan Turner says:

    This seems more reliable. I keep using some of the different ones with the buttons – my muffin top keeps resetting the buttons.

  18. micheal dale grim says:

    i walk every day and use a perdomater,but this one is so much better!! great job on the review!!!!

  19. Diana Stanhope says:

    I have never seen such a nice pedometer! I have a little one that I tried to use but it always seem to get reset accidentally.

  20. This looks fun. I need a little incentive to help get me going.

  21. Alexandra says:

    I just started running again, this would be a great addition to my workouts!

  22. Patty Smith says:

    this is exactly what I have been looking for! Sure beats the cheapo ones that lose track of ones steps!

  23. this is such a neat pedometer. Love that it gives you suggestions too

  24. Clifford says:

    The best part about this pedometer is the challenges it gives you so your workouts do not become boring. Keeping track of your steps from day to day so being able to compare each day is good.

  25. I have never used one before and have always been curious as how accurate they are

  26. Nadine Larsen says:

    This would be great for my quest to be fit by fifty. Love that it compares how you did with other days.

  27. Striiv sounds so much better than regular pedometers, and lots of fun to use :) I like the larger size.

  28. I love the cute little icons!

  29. Melissa Shirley says:

    I have always wanted one Of these. This is a nice one.

  30. elangomatt says:

    I wish that I'd purchased this pedometer instead of the fitbit that I got a while back. I didn't even know about the striiv at the time, but it sounds more interesting than the fitbit.
