Best of Breed: The Gold Standard Among PedometersSep 04, 2004
By Samuel Chell
Since getting attached to pedometers a couple of years ago, I've gone through at least a dozen--Digiwalkers, Oregon Scientifics, Omrons. Sometimes the clips would break (Digiwalkers have no spring clip), or the cover would snap off, or they would prove highly inaccurate, or they would be bulky, or they would be too "versatile" and intricate to be practical for someone who was simply looking to get in 10,000 steps for the day. For this reason, I recommended the Sportline 330 as a comparatively rugged, accurate, and inexpensive step counter that, if need be, could be replaced with minimal financial damage.
But recently I saw this "high end" Omron at Walgreen's and thought I'd give it a spin. Its primary allure: it claims to be so sensitive that you don't need to wear it on a belt or some other outer wear. Just drop it in your shirt pocket or purse and forget about it.
Guess what? The Omron people aren't pulling your leg. This is indeed a very sensitive little machine that does what it says it will do, in addition to being fast, easy, convenient, and extremely durable. I decided to test it by walking 30-40 minutes with the Omron in my shirt pocket and the Sportline clipped to my belt. At the end of my walk the Omron and Sportline were within 80 steps of each other. Moreover, it was the Omron that gave me the extra steps (a bonus if you consider the amount of time it takes--practically 2 hours--to log the full 10,000 steps).
The only advanced feature I occasionally use is the memory bank. The device automatically resets to 0 steps while saving the previous day's count in memory (for up to a week). Although I set the clock, I rarely use the other extra features--calorie counter, aerobic read-out, or even distance covered. I don't even bother with things like entering stride length and attaching clips or necklaces. This particular Omron model rises above the field because of one thing: quality. It's accurate, it's easy and fast, and it's dependable if not indestructible (I've sat on it, inadvertently sent it through the wash, dropped it into a bath-tub). It keeps going, as long as you do. If you have a shirt pocket and know how to read from one to 10,000, you're on your way.
You can never have too many good pedometers, but this Omron makes it unlikely you'll need another one any time soon. There's no question in my mind that this is best of breed, the one that Tiger Woods would use even if he had to pay for it and realized no rewards other than the practical and motivational benefits of the device itself. At its current price, it's probably the best buy on Amazon.

Excellent quality, and very accurateAug 09, 2013
By Sasha Quantino
My fitness routine right now is walking - it's all I have time to do, so I want to make sure that I move enough during the day. I have a drawer full of pedometers, and they all either pooped out, or did not accurately record how far I walked. Very annoying, and discouraging to keep you on track (sorry). This is high quality, and very accurate. A little bulky, but I'd rather have that than something that can't record distance. For all of you out there who can't have a high powered workout routine, I recommend walking and I recommend this pedometer to keep you motivated. I try to outdo myself each time I go out walking, and I like that I get an accurate reading. If you are walking to lose weight in addition to getting into shape, I found another product that works well Raspberry Ketone Platinum (2 Bottles) - Clinical Strength - All Natural Fat Burning, Weight Loss, Diet Supplement, 60 capsules. This product keeps my energy up (which is helpful when the weather isn't so good and you just want to stay inside), and it's not a stimulant, so you don't get jittery. Walking has taken some weight off - on the good weeks when I diet, I'll lose a pound, maybe 2, but when I added the supplement, I started to lose an added pound or two a week. This pedometer keeps you encouraged about walking, and the raspberry ketone does burn extra fat and keeps your weight loss going. The combination of the two has helped me lose 15 pounds so far without much effort (other than getting my bum out the door).

Best of the lotDec 08, 2004
By Dale D. Hancock
I've previously tried 4 different pedometer models--all were inconsistent and inaccurate (+/- 25%) and became moreso over the course of a couple of months. I've had the Omron HJ112 about 6 months now. I've checked it's accuracy periodcially at metered track. On a 1 mile walking course, I consistently get numbers within 0.05 mile or around 60 steps. This seems well within the variability of the actual number of steps one would take over a mile track on multiple replications.
I also like the fact that it zeroes itself at midnight and keeps a 7-day history of number of steps and distance.

RATHER AMAZING ITEM - IT ACTUALLY WORKS!Nov 27, 2004
By D. Blankenship
I am certainly no expert on the subject of pedometers, or anything else electronic, truth be told. On the other hand, I have purchased and used several different models, from several different companies and manufacturers, all at different prices and all with different features. I have also researched these things, both here on Amazon and other points of purchase and talking to friends. This Omron is by far the best. It actually functions precisely as it's makers say it will. I found the set up to be quite easy (even for a electronic dolt like myself) and found the directions to be quite comprehensive. My wife and I both tested this thing and found it to be the most accurate of the several we have used in the past. I did not feel the cost was particularly high when compaired to what you get (I have found you pretty much get what you pay for and if you purchase a pedometer for $5.95, that is just about what you will get). The unit is quite attractive and offers a number of ways to carry and attach it to yourself. I must admit, that I first purchased this for my wife, when I found how well it worked, I purchased a second one for myself. These gadgets are great motivators and can be a real eye opener. I also appreciate the other reviewers here, their reviews were the final push I needed to decide on this particular item. I highly recommend this one.

Great gadget! Makes you mindful of your activity levels.Nov 14, 2006
I bought this gadget with the intent of monitoring my daily steps to get an idea of where I was currently to establish some sort of baseline so that I could get a reality check on my activity levels. I opened the box, read the easy directions, set up my personal step measurement (just measure off the distance of your 10 steps), and clipped it on my pants and forgot about it for the day. I was surprised to find out that a corpse could probably move around more during the day than me! Over the next 6 days, (this pedometer keeps track of 7 days of steps for you); I literally stepped up my game and went from 756 steps with NO aerobic exercise on day 1, to 7,880 steps with 30 minutes of nonstop aerobic exercise on day 3! Every day has been getting easier to achieve the 10,000 "normal" steps, and increasing the aerobic steps too (which are tracked separately). I can press the mode button, check out how many miles my steps translate to, kilocalories burned, aerobic steps, and compare it with the past 7 days as well. It has turned out to be even more fun than what I originally bought it for. I actually feel better, and the fun part is that I am trying to beat my own personal record from the previous day! This has been an eye-opening experience for me, and I keep this on or in my pocket all the time now, just to make sure I keep a mindful eye on my steps and aerobic activity for the day!
