Best Pedometer Home

News Flash:

Omron recently released the Omron HJ-203 and I predict it will soon become the most popular pedometer. For several years, the Omron HJ-112 has been considered the best pedometer.  After seeing the features and benefits of the Omron HJ-203, I have no doubt it will replace the Omron HJ-112.


The best pedometer can be found in two categories:

  • the “Step and Distance Counters” category which are placed in the pocket or worn on the waist band.
  • the “Speed and Distance Monitors (GPS)” category which are worn on the wrist.

Consumer Reports rated pedometers in a study in 2009.  The study was simple since the attributes were Accuracy, Ease of Use, and Features.  Here are the best pedometers in the two categories:
