The Omron HJ-112 premium pedometer is simply the best value in a pedometer you will find on the market today. Consumer Reports rated it their number one digital pedometer for 2010.
When looking for a new pedometer, there are many models to choose from. They range from very basic functionality to devices with many features. The Omron HJ-112 digital pocket pedometer is good mixture of both. It is easy to use while providing the features walkers and joggers look for the most.
What separates this pedometer from the competition is its sensitivity and its accuracy. Most devices must sacrifice one to attain the other. The HJ-112's internal mechanics allow very accurate counting while its unique programming senses false steps. It does this by recording steps immediately, but it waits before the steps are displayed. If the movement is constant, it determines the steps are legitimate and all step are displayed and recorded. If it determines the movement is not constant, like moving in a chair or riding in a car for example, the steps are disregarded.
Because of its sensitivity and accuracy, the Omron HJ-112 pedometer can be carried in a pocket or purse. This is especially important if you do not want it to be visible. Of course it can be clipped to a belt or waist band if desired. Its Dual-Axis acceleration sensor allows it to count steps when the device is placed vertically or horizontally.
The Omron HJ-112 Digital Pocket Pedometer has all the features you would expect in the top rated pedometer.
Basic step counters are...basic, they will count steps. But if you're serious about adding walking to your daily routine, you need a pedometer that will do more for you like the Omron HJ-112. Its internal mechanics allow it to be accurate while placed in any position which makes it very versatile. It will nicely compliment any walking program you choose.
