I wear a pedometer daily...and I do wear it on my hip. But, I have the kind of pedometer that you can wear anywhere on your body cuz it doesn't track motion it tracks a different way. It is a ton more accurate than pendulum type pedometers that have to be on your hip. I find that those kind pick up on all of my movements not just steps. I would love a fitbit, but not sure if spending so much money is worth it.
