Working with new mums I know that the biggest hurdle for many is getting their shape back. The beauty of this gadget’s functionality is that it makes every step count. It’s not asking new mums to do anything they’re not already doing during the day.

A new gadget that syncs with any buggy, tracking speed, time and distance could spell the end of new mums thinking they have to spend time and money at the gym to get back into shape.
The first of its kind, the Strollometer® is a revolutionary wireless computer that calculates how far and fast mums are walking when pushing their babies out and about.
With the average mum pushing her baby buggy almost 750 miles per year* it’s an opportunity for fitness-minded mums to turn it into a workout.
Created by a mum, for mums, this nifty gadget has a sensor that attaches to a buggy’s back wheel. This then cleverly counts the wheel rotations, allowing the main console, placed on the handlebar, to gauge the speeds.
It has eight different settings by which to monitor how fast you’re strolling, your maximum and average speeds, how far you’ve gone, the time it’s taken you and your daily mileage. It will also tell you the temperature and time.
At the end of a stroll, the data can be captured and translated into calories lost simply by using the calorie calculator on the Strollometer® UK distributor site, Fit4Mum.com

Co-invented by Americans, Adi and Don Weber, the Strollometer is the product of parents who wanted to get more out of their strolls. “Our inspiration for the Strollometer came about one month after I gave birth to our third child, Deena. I would often take my daughter on strolls in an attempt to squeeze in a good workout while she napped. Unfortunately, I never knew how far I went, how fast I strolled, or whether my “workout” would ever measure up to the workouts I was familiar with at my gym. Nothing designed for bikers or walkers gave me the information, accuracy or ease I wanted. The idea for the Strollometer was born. And by designing it from the ground up, we made sure it could easily strap-on to any stroller–whether it’s traditional, all-terrain or jogging”.
