Excellent until it disappears...,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Omron HJ-112 Digital Pocket Pedometer (Health and Beauty)
This pedometer is easily a five star pedometer. It was easy to use, easy to set and read, and for the brief time I had it I thought it was the best pedometer I have owned.
Unfortunately, after 4 days it disappeared from my belt. The clip is completely unsatisfactory, and if you keep it on a belt you will loose it.
If you plan to carry it anywhere else, it would probably be worth buying, but do not count on the clip to secure it to your person.

This is absolutely true - I "lost" mine as well, only to find it on the seat in my car. I really just carry it in my pocket and clip it on my shorts only when I'm working out. It's a great pedometer but I kinda wish I hadn't bought it only because I haven't used it much... yet!

Right on! The device works great but the clip/holster is really useless. It has fallen off my belt at least a half dozen times. If you do any bending, stooping, ect. it's gone.

Grrr. I also lost my pedometer AGAIN! I was mowing 3 acres and it's somewhere in the grass!

Loop it around your belt. if it falls off you will not lose it. I have had mine for 2 years now. I just ordered another one since mine stopped working.

Every pedometer I have owned was never accurate is this one? With other pedometers I would walk 10 steps and it would say 40-60, or 6-8 never correct number of steps.

Read other highly rated posts. This is supposedly the most accurate. Consumer Reports recommends this.

I would agree that yes, it does fall off, but that's why it comes with a little bit of "rope" attachment with a clip on the end. It is threaded through the pedometer, while the other end is the plastic clip. Put it in the plastic holder, then attach the clip to a pocket or your waistband. If it falls out of the clip, it just swings on the attached rope and you don't lose it. You need to use the plastic holder AND the clip together.

I have had three other pedometers, either they were hard to set or not accurate. I love this pedometer. Easy to set and I have counted my steps and checked the pedometer and usually right on, if not it's only one step off. This may be how it registered when I stopped walking. It also shows aerobic steps, miles, & kcal. As far as falling off, I use the rope and clip and put the pedometer in my pocke. If no pockets the I use the plastic holder and clip together. I have never lost it.

No surprise... all the pedometers I've ever had fell off numerous time from my waistband. I just lost one yesterday which is why I am here looking for a new one. I need a pedometer that I can put in a pocket of my shorts or attached to my bag. I don't wear belts. Ordering this pedometer NOW.

I too am greatly dissatisfied with the clip! The clip also makes it bulky.
