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

    Because of your recommendation, I have purchased the same one and have loved it since. I also wear it from the moment I wake up in the morning to the moment I go to bed at night. When the first one malfunctioned, I sent it in for a replacement with no problem. I highly recommend it. Thank you, my friend!

    I feel the same way! I don't go anywhere without my watch, glasses, Omron pedometer. I may misplace my car keys or cellphone, but life comes to a halt sans pedometer!

    I do the same thing. Keeps you motivated to keep moving.

    I've tried a few cheap ones and could not get it to work. I just now ordered this one and hope I will like it, thanks.

    I got one at Wal-Mart and I like it. I was amazed at how many steps I put on it just shopping at Wal-Mart.

    I wear my pedometer from morning until night since 2001. Yamax is the brand used in all step studies. I used the Yamax SW-651 for years but had to replace it a few times due to the plastic clip breaking but I loved the stopwatch feature to time my exercise sessions. I currently use the SW-651 at the gym and the CW-701 on my street clothes. The 7 day memory and automatic reset is nice on the CW-701 as well as it has a metal clip. I recommend you buy the optional safety strap to prevent accidental loss.

    What pedometer are you using? I need to buy one and want to get a good one.

    I like my pedometer too.
