passometer

(1) A pocket-sized instrument registering the number of steps or paces taken by the pedestrian carrying it. Formerly called a pedometer. The passometer is housed in a case resembling that of a watch and is attached in an upright position to the body or to a leg. The distance walked is obtained by multiplying the number of steps or paces taken by the length of the wearer's step or pace.
