Omron HJ-113 Walking Style Step Counter Pedometer

only $19.99 at J&R

# Omron HJ-113 is a technological evolution in pedometers. It acts as a discreet partner to your exercise, an invisible accessory hidden from public scrutiny, that you can use throughout the day. The HJ-113 has been engineered with a new sensor technology that brings a whole list of added features than those found on more traditional step counters. Old style step counters have to be worn on the hip and the mercury movement detection mechanism they use is not particularly reliable, especially in cheaper models. Omron’s new sensor technology means you can pop the HJ-113 discreetly into your pocket or bag and it will reliably count every step you take. It even automatically calculates the difference between normal walking about and the rhythmic pattern of an aerobic workout. Better yet, the Omron Step Counter doesn’t just count your steps - it measures distance, too, and calculates calories and fat burned. With a 7-day memory, this step counter will motivate you to take more steps, every day, towards your fitness or Weight loss goals. So add all your daily steps to tally your actual exercise with the Omron HJ-113. Whether you place it in your pocket, bag, or belt, this pedometer will help keep track of your continuous waling habits. Unique dual accelerometer sensors let you carry your pedometer in your pocket or bag.
