The Fitness4Her Health and Fitness Product Review of:
I was looking for a pedometer to keep track when I walk, since I don’t always follow the same path, I wanted one that would keep a record of my steps and distance. I’m not all that interested in the amount of calories burned, but I know many people like to keep a running track of calories consumed and expended when managing their weight.
The Omron HJ-720ITC Pocket Pedometer is a full-featured pedometer that allows you to calculate the number of steps, the distance traveled and the calories burned. Designed to tolerate more tilt so that it doesn’t count false steps as I have experienced with many other pedometers. I placed it in my pocket and took the same walk for a couple of days walking the same distance and the pedometer was accurate each time.
I like the fact that the Omron HJ-720ITC is small enough to easily fit in my pocket while still being fully functional and precise. The user friendly, large LCD display is easy to read, even outside. So, you can take it out of your pocket at any time during your walk to check how far you’ve traveled. It’s great for walking on the beach, or any place where the surroundings make it hard to gauge your distance traveled.
There is software available to upload your steps, distance and calories to your computer and keep an ongoing account of your walking program. This great little tool has a lot of potential for such a small device. Inexpensive and convenient, reliable and durable, I would recommend this pedometer to anyone starting a walking program fitness program or who just wants to keep track of the steps they take in a regular day.
