I asked Coach Nancy if she could recommend a good low-priced pedometer, and sure enough, she did! She said it's an Omron Pedometer, and I could get it at Walgreens. Sure enough, it was on sale 1/2 price and I got it for $9.99!!! It works GREAT! (I got it beside the blood pressure products by the pharmacy)

From the time I get out of bed in the morning until the time I go to bed at night I wear a pedometer. Sometimes I forget to take it off when I go to bed, DH says it's so I get all the steps from sleepwalking counted. My goal is to get 10,000 steps per day. I am lost without my trusty Omron pedometer.
This is the pedometer I have and love, Omron HJ-720ITC Pocket Pedometer with Advanced Omron Health Management Software. I got it from Amazon.com.
I accidently washed my jeans with my Omron pedometer in the pocket. I was so upset. My sister told me to take the battery cover off and remove the battery then to place all of the parts including the battery into a ziplock bag with a few handfulls of dry rice. Skeptical I followed her suggestion.
I left it in the rice for one week. Today I removed the parts, reassembled the pedometer and it works perfectly. This also works with cell phones (as she can personally attest.)
No Pedometer - There's an App for That: Cardio Tracker
I had my Omron pedometer stolen (sniffle) so I was on the fence about buying a new one or a BodyBugg and then I searched on my Droid Cell Phone Market and found "CARDIO TRACKER". This App uses GPS to track your route whether your walking/running & tracks miles, time, calories burned, & it's FREE!!!
