You can clue into your daily step count with the CLUE board! Pair it with a wearable case and you have a DIY step counter. A lot of step counters require an app to see your data, but with this project you can see your daily steps without any fears about your data security.

How It Works

The CLUE's on-board accelerometer has a built-in pedometer. With the CircuitPython CLUE and LSM6DS33 libraries, you can access the pedometer to count your steps with just a few lines of code.

In addition to monitoring your total step count, you can also track your progress towards your step goal and see how many steps per hour you're taking. To keep your battery life going strong, you can also adjust the CLUE's display brightness using the A and B buttons on either side of the screen.
