I have an Omron too. (model HJ-720ITC) I also like it because I can keep it in my pocket. Mine has a feature where you can download your steps into the computer so you can track.
I had a cheap one and on the way home in my car it tracked 1000's of steps!
My usual activity is about 4,000 steps, so I have set a goal for March to do 8,000 steps daily.
