It's an Omron HJ-112. It stores your info for seven days, and the battery life is good. I had to replace the battery after about six months, as expected, which was an easy $10 at a watch shop. It works just fine in my pocket, which is good because belt clips and I don't mix!
I eventually got a new pedometer. I've been logging my steps and distances in my fitness tracker, but haven't checked in here. As of yesterday, I've walked just over 420 miles, so I'm about 27% of the way through my journey. I've been walking a lot more recently, so I expect faster progress to begin now!
I just create my own map then right click on the map for "directions from here" then Directions to here. You can slide both points and see the miles change as you slide them. Once you find the right point just click on "save to my maps" on the left. I then rename the "B" point and delete the line and "A" point.
P.S. You can't "Save to My Maps" unless the trip is planned "by car"... Don't know why.

1,535 miles to walk from my house to the beach in Santa Monica, CA, using Google Maps' walking route. I like that one because it's broken up into smaller bites, so I can track my progress better to see exactly where I'd be.
I just got my pedometer last night, so I'm starting with today's toal, which I'll record tomorrow.
If I make it, I might reward myself with a real trip there -- by car! I've always wanted to take the big trip down I-10 and see the Southwest.
