Omron Pedometers

Omron pedometersOmron Healthcare has seven pedometers on the market, and, amazingly, they occupy (at time of writing) 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 7th, 12th and 16th positions on the Amazon.com pedometer bestseller rankings. Clearly, they are exceedingly popular.

The pedometers are (in order of popularity):

* Omron HJ-112 Digital Pocket Pedometer

* Omron HJ-720ITC Pocket Pedometer with Advanced Omron Health Management Software

* Omron HJ-151 Hip Pedometer for Aerobic Activity (picture)

* Omron HJ-303 GoSmart Tri-Axis Pocket Pedometer

* Omron HJ-113 Pocket Pedometer

* Omron HJ-150 Hip Pedometer

* Omron HJ-105 Pedometer with Calorie Counter

At its corporate website, Omron promotes just six of these, and it has rebranded them GOsmart. It also has a GOsmart Pedometers website, where it promotes three of them.

The reason for their popularity is of course that they are good. For example, Consumer Reports in its February 2009 issue named the Omron HJ 112 pedometer as its best buy among pedometers. And at Amazon.com this monitor has attracted more than 2,400 customer reviews, a huge number, with more than 90% of them rating it four or five stars (out of five).

An internet search will bring up many favorable reviews of Omron pedometers, although few appear to be particularly objective.

At About.com: Walking you can see their list of the Top 10 Best Pedometers, with Omron pedometers at Number One and Number Three.
