I have an Omron, Fitbit, and Striiv. All are accurate when worn in the same place. The Fitbit is the second one I've owned. The first one broke and it has trouble staying on clothing with the clip. My Omron has a leash as does the Striiv. I don't have time right now to play with the Striiv although it does have challenges and can be fun to use. The Fitbit can also have fun challenges. It is most accurate for me on the waistband and I killed my last one wearing it there. It is about 3000 steps short when worn on the bra.
The Omron usually doesn't start recording steps until you have taken 5-10 then it records all of them. This reduces the "random" factor when you bump it.
The Omron was far less expensive, but doesn't have the bells and whistles the others have. It is a personal choice and you can find the one that suits you best.

I am also a FitBit fan. It's well worth the money.

I've tried all kinds of pedometers and other similar gadgets and have to say that nothing has been as accurate or useful as the FitBit, which is way more than 'just' a pedometer - well worth the $$

Try the Accupedo Pro app...it is free and works with your phone in your pocket or on your belt. This is perfect until you save up for your FitBit (sometimes I forget my FitBit and leave it at home)....the accupedo and FitBit match each other (I tested them). to tell you the truth, i don't care much about my sleep patterns. I know I sleep 7-8 hours...I am not that obsessed at that much info......
I have an old one from Brookstone that they don't even make anymore. I've been thinking about a FitBit, since so many people here have one, but I just can't afford it right now. Maybe I'll ask for one for my birthday! There's an idea!!!

While a FitBit may seem pricey it is so much more than a pedometer. I have been a proud owner since May 2010 and would consider nothing else.

I have an Omron and love it. It records accurately and I've had no problems. Good Luck!!

I use a Digi-Walker. I don't know if this is considered too sensitive.
My pedometer app is too sensitive--just bump my phone and it records 1-2 steps. Does anyone have suggestions for other apps or a regular pedometer? I've been reading reviews on Amazon. most sites I visited claimed the Ormron tri-axle is the best, but reviews said it was ultra-sensitive--like my app. Any suggestions?
