The Step Keeper is housed inside a translucent gray rounded Springboard casing. As an aside, I really like this particular style of casing. It does stick out the back of the Visor about 3 mm, but it's very light and rounded and doesn't seem bulky in any way. It includes a nice faux-leather case with Velcro flap and a plastic clip to clip on your belt while walking. The whole assembly weighs almost nothing, so you don't notice it while walking. It works best on your belt than it does in your pocket, due to the internal pendulum's action.
As you walk, the pendulum clicks up and down softly, counting steps.
The Step Keeper's rechargeable battery holds the internal memory of the
module for about 2 days, but when you insert the Step Keeper into your
Visor the battery sips power and recharges. The battery looks like a
small flat watch battery, and Hagiwara says it will last for at least
10,000 recharges. Even though the memory of the module is only
about 2 days at a time, that's not the limitation you'd think because
that memory only holds the current number of steps. Your Visor's
memory holds the historical records; records are added each time you
insert the module and the records are downloaded.
