I just bought the Nike sensor that lives in the left shoe and syncs with my iPhone. I used it today and so far I'm impressed.

I use Omron. I keep it on all the time. Love it. Easy way for me to feel I've done something positive each day when I record my steps. Love the way it keeps track for 8 days.

I use a pedometer when I am being dilegent, so yeah most of the time I don't. LOL. I really don't like the ones I have had, but after reading this discussion I will give them a try again.

I just switched to OMRON due to suggestions from 2 of my northern Calif. spark friends. I like it a lot better and you can it online through Walmart for $21, it is a lot better than the last one I had. Either way though you get a good approximation of how much you have moved, love them, wear them constantly.emoticon

My m2 is very reliable and tough to put up with me. I wear it everyday, I've dropped it I don't know how many times. (it comes with a lanyard but I don't always use it)I did drop it in the toilet and had to get a new one the first time, the second time I used a blow dryer on it and put in a ziplock bag with rice for two days and it works. Whew Now I do use the lanyard every time. Being with out it while my new came was a downer. It's amazing how used to get to something. It is made by a company called Mytrak which uses NASA technology in the development. emoticon

No. I haven't found them very accurate and they break easily.

I have one called the M2, I tell people it's my pedometer on steroids. I've had it for 10 months and hate to go anywhere with out it. It's like the body bugg 24 hour fitness has but it's smaller more discreet and less expensive. It even estimates how many calories it thinks you are using based on the calories you are burning and gradually pushes you to do more. There are levels that you can set it at depending on what type of fitness you are looking for. I put a link on my profile for you to look into if your interested. I can't tell you what a difference it has made in my fitness.emoticon

I've tried several different pedometers. The two I would recommend: the newer pedometer that weight watchers sells. If you don't attend WW mtgs, you can stop by any WW center and buy one without being a member.

The one I have that is the BEST, is the app I downloaded for my Iphone. It was only .99 and it's the best pedometer I've used. Since I ALWAYS have my phone with me I never forget my pedometer. You can set it to work on your belt, hand, pocket or arm. You can then email you steps, miles, calories burned, etc to yourself for easy tracking. It also ties directly into your music which helps when you are walking. I know not everyone has an Iphone, but you can download the app on an Itouch or another smartphone.

I use one when I am going outside. I got one that seems to work well at Wal mart.

I just started using one this week, not sure it is very accurate may need to invest in a better one.

I have been using one since I started adding exercise to check the steps. At first I had super cheapos and they were inaccurate and broken often. I got one on Amazon--Omron--it cost all of $21 and I love it. They have more expensive ones which would have more bells and whistles but I wasn't interested in that.

I use one 7 days a week. I got it free at work. It doesn't show the brand, sorry I can't help with that. However, I have found it making me to be obsessive regarding my 10,000 daily steps.

Night before last, I was walking around the neighborhood at midnight to get the last 2,000 steps in before going to bed. Then last night (because of the rain) i was at Target until they closed to get in almost 4,000 steps.

I'm looking into purchasing a pedometer, but I'm looking for something accurate. One that estimates calories would be a plus too! Anyone here use one? Does anyone recommend a specific brand or model?
