I have a Body Bugg. It's way more accurate than any pedometer I've ever used. My old one said I was doing 12,000 steps a day at work and Body Bugg says 6,500. I never want to underestimate my steps again because it leads to overeating for me.
I have an Omron that I literally wear 24/7. It records not only steps, but also aerobic steps and time. I take it off to shower and swim, will record running steps and also some bike pedaling. I got it on ebay.

I've been thinking about getting an Ipod Nano and the Nike+ system for a couple of weeks now to track my runs. I already use and Ipod when I run, and the Nike+ thing would be able to tell me my distance I've completed, and how far I need to go. Which would be a lot better than planning out a route on Gmaps and then trying to remember it when I'm out running. I want to be able just to RUN dang it!
You can get an refurbished 5th generation Nano for about $99 on Apple's website which is a really good deal, and then the Nike+ system is about $35. I'm thinking it's going to be my reward for keeping with my HM training schedule for another couple of weeks.
Those of you who run/jog, do you use a pedometer? If so, which kind do you have? What do you like/dislike about it? Which kind would you get if you had unlimited funds, and why? :)
I'm going to be going on vacation in a month, I'll be gone for 2 weeks. I definitely want to keep up with my jogging but I haven't been running long enough to have a "feel" for how far I've run. Plus, I want to continue to track my calories burned if possible. Any and all information and opinions on pedometers is welcome!
