If you go back and read my previous posts, my local Walmart carries inexpensive, inaccurate pedometers (about $7) in the sporting goods department, and good quality OMRON brand (about $20) in the pharmacy department, near the blood pressure monitors.

Nehi - I've not specifically looked at my WalMart here, but I would imagine they would have them in the sporting goods section if they have them. Other sporting goods type stores would probably have them also - Sports Authority, Dicks Sporting Goods, any type of store that sells running shoes, running apparel, etc.
I just found 2 of my pedometers in my "stuff" yesterday (which I accidentally packed in to storage when I moved in with my BF, and was too lazy to look for alone, too cheap to buy another one) when I was looking for something else. I have a Sportline 350 and Sportline 342 (which needs a new battery). I have had both so long that I don't know where I got them or how much they cost. I will say that I like the 350 more.
Thank you everyone for your info and thoughts. After looking at the info I have decided on the Omron 720. The only bad thin is Walmart does not sell near my house so have to order online. I was hopin to have tomorrow morning to start week off right with all equipment I might need.
I'm an Omron person. I have used a HJ-112 and now have a 720. I love the ability to download my information. The software will give your information hourly, weekly, yearly, etc. It is nice when I get busy and don't remember to write down my steps.
If I was a night person, I'd just change the clock to turn over during my sleep time. Otherwise, it all adds up in the end,so it doesn't bother me.
