Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?)
1. This is the third Omron pedometer I’ve owned and as with all Omron products, it’s excellent for it’s intended purposes.

2. However, after using various pedometers, I would highly suggest that one purchase the Omron Tri-axis pedometer for the following reasons:
a. This one doesn’t have the ability to clip on to a belt; many would like to utilize it this way. This unit come with a lanyard type device with a clip; but you can’t put it on a belt.
b. The most important issue is this: there are times that you’re just going to want to put the pedometer in your pocket, purse, backpack… and when you put it in your pocket, there is no way you can ensure that the pedometer is laying in the correct position so as to ensure proper counting of steps (as you have to do with this unit). However with the triaxis model, it’ll count steps in basically any orientation, which once you start using a pedometer, 99% of people are going to realize is a must have function.

3. Thus, although this is a good pedometer with nice functions, you might as well spend the extra bucks and get the much better and versatile Omron Tri-axis model.

Small accurate fun pedometer, June 15, 2010
This review is from: Omron HJ-203 Pedometer with Activity Tracker (Health and Beauty)
I love my little pedometer! It’s just the added motivation to get moving that I needed.
The HJ-203 is small and light, with an easy to read large display.
Benefits are:
– Accurately counts steps whether it is in my pocket, on my belt, or in my purse.
– Fastens securely with a locking clip
– 7 day history for steps, distance, & calories (with a separate counting for exercise/action mode)
– Special mode for exercise – this really helped accuracy while running!

I would highly recommend this pedometer. And as a fun feature, if you make the 10,000 step goal, there is a small figure on the display celebrating your accomplishment!

What’s different about this pedometer?, September 16, 2010

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?)
I love the Omron brand. I’ve purchased several different brands but always come back to Omron. My biggest problem with all trackers is I keep putting them in the wash.

When I started my Weight Watcher’s program, I needed a new pedometer to help me keep track of Activity Points. I purchased the WW brand, first. Took it back. I tried another brand. Took it back. I ended up buying two Omrons just in case I put one through the wash. So far, I’m still on the first one! I’ve been in the program over a year.

Then, Amazon Vine gave me the opportunity to review the Omron Jj-203 Pedometer with Activity Tracker. I’ve been using it for the last couple of weeks. So, what’s different about this pedometer?

Just like my other Omron, I can put it in my pocket and go. At the end of the day, I can see how many steps I’ve taken and log them in my Weight Watcher app on my iPhone.

OR, I can set a goal for 15,000 steps to motivate me to walk more than normal. Then I keep walking the day away until I reach my goal.

OR, I can keep track of my normal steps as above, AND, in addition to that, using the Activity Tracker, keep track of specific workouts, such as time on the elliptical or a walk, jog or run.

At the end of the day, I press Memo and see how many total steps I took and how many of them were workout steps. This helps me keep a more accurate record of Activity Points for programs like Weight Watchers.

It took me a bit to figure out how to activate the Activity Tracker, but it’s really easy. You just have to hold the button down for at least 2 seconds to activate or deactivate.

The pedometer measures distance, calories and fat burned. Set up was super easy, as typical for all the Omron pedometers I’ve tried. All you do is enter your height and weight. The pedometer estimates your stride for you. Or you can follow the directions to input your actual stride.

It’s lightweight and easily fits in your pocket. It’s actually so thin, I can fit it in the same pocket as my iPhone. I like that!

Unlike other reviewers, I didn’t find a problem with how it was positioned. It worked either in my pocket or hanging on a lanyard.

5 Stars for this one!
