What is a good brand that sells pedometers? And where can I get it? Online is also okay..I would like one that is a nice one and measures my strides and actually also tells me how many calories I burn off and etc. I would like one that has a lot of features. I was thinking under $75 dollars at the most. I'm not too sure what is considered expensive for a pedometer? Any suggestions? Someone suggested to me that I buy one and then make a "game" out of it to see how close I can get to 10,000 steps a day.

Thanks,
Brit

I got mine at a sports store, but you can get them at WalMart, and definitely for under $75! Mine cost me $35CDN - and I couldn't ask for it to anything more than it does :)

Have a look and see what you fancy about them - some have more or less features than others. I'd avoid the dead cheap ones (like $5-15) but they probably work just as well ;) Good luck!

Hi blondebritbrat17,

I use, and really like, the Omron HJ-105 Digital Pedometer, with
Steps
Aerobic steps,
Calories,
Distance.

It also has a digital clock and keeps the last seven days record.

I've worn my daily for two years. Just love using it. (Actually I'm on my thrid one since I tend to lose them in airports and where ever, LOL)

Here's the link to buy it through the 3FC store:
http://astore.amazon.com/3fatchionadie/detail/B000TD35X2/104-2782553-1396751

For whatever reason, that link doesn't show you the picture, you here's a direct Amazon link with a picture (but use the above link to order through the 3FC store so they get their coin in commission).

Good luck.

The best pedometer seems to be the Omron HJ-112, based on a glowing report from Consumer Reports, as well as many members here that use and love it :)

Amazon has it for under 20 bucks. (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B0000U1OCI/3fatchionadie)

Amazon has another version of it that comes with tracking software for your computer for around $32. (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000MN92WM/3fatchionadie) Though it doesn't work with Windows Vista.

I just bought the newest version from OMRON! I love this brand, out of the dozens of pedometers I have purchased this is one far superior. I was tired of spending 5-20 dollars on a new one every month or every time it fell off and broke, so I got a link off of this forum from a wonderful person and purchased one off of amazon.com for $26. I've had it for about 2 months, and it is the most accurate (which is a big deal for me) pedometer I have ever had.

I have a little sportline one that is about the size of a credit card, only thicker. I like it because I can stick it in my pocket and not have it make a bump.. I have enought bumps on my own :)
