If You’re Looking for a Good Pedometer

This is the one I have:

Omron HJ-112 Digital Pocket Pedometer

Omron Pedometer

Omron Pedometer

I’ve had mine for over a year now, and have been very happy with it! Once you’ve set your stride length, it’s very accurate (I’ve compared my mileage on the pedometer to my mileage on the treadmill and it matches up perfectly), and you can wear it on your belt, or stick it in your pocket or purse. I haven’t tried putting it on or in my handbag, but I’ve put it in my pocket on several occasions, and it tracks just fine.

I had to change the battery after about six months and I broke the safety clip on it (my fault), but aside from that, there have been no issues with it. You definitely want to use the safety clip if you wear it on your belt or waistband. I can’t even count how many times it’s saved my pedometer from taking an unplanned trip to the toilet!

You can track miles, steps kcals and aerobic steps, and it stores seven days’ worth of data in memory.

It looks like Amazon’s got a really good price on it, too! I paid almost double for mine when I bought it.
