In the existing studies providing a method which do exercise according to music speed, the method was used which a user changes playing musics. However, if the method which a user changes directly playing musics is used, flow of exercise can be discontinued during searching musics when anyone want to play a fast music. In this paper, we designed the module which measures the number of steps from a user of wearable smart shoes based on the Arduino, and implemented the module so that the number of steps can be measured correctly by sending data to smart phone based on Android. And it is possible to measure moving distance and pace speed by utilizing a GPS in order to get the more accurate momentum. Also, we can measure more accurate calorie consumption than existing products by measuring the mean value of the calorie consumption for moving distance and the calorie consumption for the number of steps, give motivation of exercise by applying an algorithm of changing music genre according to pace speed, and increase the exercise effect at the same time.
