My brother is pre-diabetic, according to the doctor, and is working on losing weight. He's started the South Beach Diet on his doctor's advice. His job is somewhat active, as well, but he would probably benefit from a pedometer to show him his daily step totals, and maybe motivate him to take a few more. I know a heart rate monitor really helped motivate me to work out harder and longer to get my calorie burn totals higher, so maybe a pedometer will help him out to start HIS journey...
I'm thinking of this as a Christmas gift. Any recommendations on an affordable, quality pedometer??
