Thin, light weight, compact. Not a clip on. Simple counting steps, tracks time, and you can set stride length. Fits anywhere (in pockets), doesn't have to be vertical. I put it in my workout bra and don't notice its there. Far better then losing it off my shorts as I have done many a time.
Should fit snugly in a pocket. Pedometers are great for showing your degree of activity. If you don't get 10,000 steps a day, you should cut back on calories. A good way to gauge your fitness vs food. They are the best for setting, and sticking to a goal.

i recently bought a new pedometer and i cant set it! i have followed the instructions to a t---- yet here i am, still unable to use it properly. if anyone knows what i am doing wrong, please let me know. it is a sportline 15 function pedometer from walmart.
Having some kind of activity monitor - a pedometer, a heart rate monitor, and currently, my Fitbit has really helped me to keep track of how much I move. Some days, I reach my goal without realizing it and other days I haven't moved as much as I thought. It is a great way to motivate yourself to get out and exercise.
An inexpensive pedometer will give you the feedback you need, if you don't want to invest in something expensive.
