Omron Pedometer - Takes A Lickin And Keeps On Tickin!
Members Were Sparked
I love this little gadget! It definitely motivates you to get up and move. I wear it daily (it resets itself at midnight) and every week download the info to my computer so I can see at a glance how I am doing. It went through the washer last week and still works... One tough little gadget!

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.
If you already wear a badge on a lanyard at work, why not add a pedometer? I wear a cute handmade lanyard from Etsy with my badge and an Omron HJ-203 ($20 @ Amazon) "pocket" pedometer. I like not having to connect to my waist, and my dress shoes lack shoelaces, so the lanyard is the way to go. Plus it's cute, and it has a handy clock to boot!
I added a jump ring (very cheap, used for jewelry, see your local craft store) so the pedometer can be detached & worn in pockets on evenings, weekends. They come in pink (mine), yellow, purple, and black. When you make 10K steps, there's a little guy in there that cheers!
