Keep Track to Succeed!,
This review is from: Omron HJ-112 Digital Pocket Pedometer (Health and Beauty)
This is pedometer is Consumer Reports #1 rated digital pedometer- and I can see why. It's extremely light weight and really easy to use with just four big buttons on the front. Here's a few of its best features:
-it can accurately senses steps in your belt, pocket, OR purse!
-it has a large display for the visually impaired
-it has a 7 day history so you can see progress (or lack of)
-it calculates calories and distance in addition to steps
I'd recommend this little device to anyone who wants to lose weight- just begin one day, and the next day, see if you can maintain or beat your previous step record. Now how easy is that?
So what DIDN'T I like about it? Not much. Perhaps the ONLY sort of negative thing I can say is that you will need a tiny screwdriver to open the back of it to put in the battery. Other than that, if you're looking to increase your activity a little to improve your health, look no further.

Good review, but you don't need obtain a tiny screwdriver to open the battery cover -- it comes with one. That flat disc with the little bump-out is the screwdriver they give you.

I bought a unit and am happy with it. The only issue is that it does not switch off automatically (as claimed in the instruction booklet) when the unit is not in use. Does your unit siwtches off when inactive? PF

Mine has never switched off when inactive and I've had it for a few months now too.

Is it like a wristwatch maybe, like always on?

Sorry for getting off the subject but If someone is a slower walker, would he use the aerobic model or the moderate walker model? I'm a little confused about what the difference is. The HJ-112 Model seems much more "user friendly." Any comments would be appreciated.

I have the same question as D. Shaffer. If someone is a slower walker, is the HJ-151 model to track "moderate" walking better than going with the HJ-112? I called Omron, and they said the HJ-112 tracks aerobic steps which is 10 minutes of continuous walking where someone is taking 60 steps per minute. With the HJ-151, moderate walking is measured by physical energy being more than just a slow, leisurly walk.
