A West German ankle Pedometer, dating from c.1960. This instrument was made in Germany for the export market. It is in near mint condition, complete with original box, packaging, instruction leaflet, strap etc. It was described as 'absolutely new in both design and method of operation. The walked distance is indicated in miles by a pointer on the dial of the instrument'. It was intended to be fastened just above the ankle, and has four coloured scales relating to differwent pace length, ranging from 19 to 25 inches.
In unused, 'as new' condition. It looks like it has never been out of its box. Has been briefly tested and appears to be in good working order, but as a vintage item it's accuracy cannot be guaranteed.
