I have an Omron Walking Style pedometer. It's okay, not entirely accurate but I compensate for that. It gives the total walking steps for the day (just post it before midnight when it clears the entry), the aerobic steps for the day, and the mileage for the day (this is what is not accurate). Inexpensive, durable. It doesn't have a memory chip so when the battery dies, you lose all of your input and have to reprogram.

I use the Garmin Forerunner 305 with heart rate. It is a gps enabled trainer.

ESP!! I was just online looking for a pedometer app for my Droid phone. Looks like there are several listed in both the Google Play Store and the Android App Market. Will know more when I get home and try to download there. My phone is not hooked up to the online service here at the office.

I just got back from a short walk and went to look at my steps taken on my trusty old weight watchers pedometer and it was blank! May just need a battery but I've had this for over 3 years and loved it.

Think I will update to my phone if I can find an app that will run when the phone is in idle mode. I've looked at some of the reviews and some of the free apps are also battery drainers for your phone.

Thanks for the post and eager to see what others say. Keep Walking!

what type of pedometer do you use or recommend for tracking your walks and if you use an app for your droid phone what do you recommend. Looking for one that also tracks steps
