Omron HJ-720ITC Pocket Pedometer

Omron HJ-720ITC pocket pedometerOmron pedometers are hugely popular, and the Omron HJ-720ITC pedometer became a best seller soon after its February 2007 release.

A company press release said:

The HJ-720ITC, like its sister pedometer (HJ-112), not only accurately measures the number of steps taken, distance walked, and calories and fat burned, but also calculates the number of aerobic steps a user takes. Aerobic steps are defined as walking for more than 60 steps per minute, and for more than 10 minutes continuously. In addition, this pedometer displays the most recent seven days of data on the screen. The current day's data is automatically stored in memory at midnight and saved for up to 42 days.

To help users better monitor their progress, the HJ-720ITC can be connected to a computer using an Omron Healthcare USB cable and Omron Health Management software (both included with pedometer). With detailed charts and graphs, the program can track progress for multiple users, enabling fitness and wellness goals to be set and reached on a daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly basis.

...Unlike other pedometers, the HJ-720ITC operates using dual acceleration sensor technology, which means that in addition to being clipped to a belt, it can function while conveniently placed in a pocket or a bag. The HJ-720ITC will be available on major online shopping sites and will retail for approximately $49.99.

According to Gearlog:

Many pedometers require the user to wear it on their wrist or belt buckle. What I like about Omron's latest model is that you can just throw it in your bag or purse, and it's still capable of recording data due to dual sensor technology.

The Pocket Pedometer features an LCD screen and is capable of measuring your steps, aerobic movement, calories, and distance. The unit displays the total number of aerobic steps in a day as long as you walk more than 60 steps per minute and walk for more than 10 minutes continuously. You can rest for 1 minute, and the unit will still count that as continuous movement.

...Based on my experience with the Pocket Pedometer, I definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to keep track of how much they exercise. It's a great tool for people who want to lose weight, and watch how much they've progressed week after week.
