Great Alternative to the HJ-112, September 10, 2009
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
I’ve been a real advocate of the Omrom HJ-112 for years. Absolutely loved my old HJ-112… Unfortunately I got careless and accidently left it clipped to my pants and ran them through the washing machine… So I decided to get a new pedometer. I was intrigued by this new model and decided to give it a try. I really like it. It has some improvements over the HJ-112 and it’s less expensive to boot! Briefly here are the differences: 1) It’s smaller in circumference, but slightly thicker. 2) It has a different paint job. 3) There’s one less button, the reset function has been removed, which I rarely used on my old pedometer. 4) The real improvement is that while the HJ-112 stored your KCal burned, total steps, aerobic steps, and total miles for 7 days it did not save your aerobic minutes. They were only visible for the current day. The HJ-113 stores aerobic minutes as well as all the others for 7 days. This was a great improvement for me. I like to log my aerobic distance as well as time. It helps me to calculate walking speed, a component of my program I’m trying to improve. 5) They’ve also included a fat gram burned on the KCal display. Frankly it’s just the KCal divided by 9. I doesn’t add anything for me, but it might help motivate someone else.

So overall I think this model is fantastic; it offers all the benefits of the HJ-112 (I find it’s every bit as accurate, etc) and it has a few added benefits of its own. Namely: it’s slightly smaller, it stores your aerobic times as well as distance for 7 days, it calculates fat grams burned, and it’s cheaper! FYI: mine came with battery, so that’s not how they’re trying to save $. I got mine via Amazon/J&R and even with the nominal amount of shipping () it was still less expensive than the HJ-112. I heartily recommend it, it’s a great motivational tool. Also contrary to info in other reviews this is not a European model; all the distances are in miles, weight input is in lbs, stride is in inches, ect.

The BEST Pedometer on the Market by FAR…, November 24, 2008
I’ve spent plenty of money on pedometers that never seemed to work for me. The clips would break, the number of steps were never accurate, they’d fall off… never to be seen again. Until I found this one. This current model has a really COOL color scheme, but the underlying product is PHENOMINAL. For those reviews that say they “lost” their pedometer due to a falty clip, the only thing I can say there is they must not have engaged the safety strap that I clip to my belt loop to avoid such a situation. Of course, as a male, I wear pants with a belt loop, and so this has never been a problem. This current product is an upgrade from my previous one, which lasted nearly 4 years before the unit itself stopped working properly. An upgrade on this version from the previous one is the “reset” button is no longer on the front and accidental resets (a small problem previously) no longer occur.

Options I love: 7 day memory, auto reset at midnight, EXTREMELY accurate counting of steps.

My only “negative” comment about the product is the inaccurate counts I get when I wear the thing on long runs. Depending on where I put it, it can be off a bit, and I’m not annoyed enough by that to give it a negative star rating. That’s what I get for taking the thing to the edge of it’s capabilities. If you want the most accurate step counter on the market, you can’t beat this product at the price it’s offered. You could spend a lot more for a product as accurate, but why?

Worth the price, October 31, 2008

Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
I purchased this pedometer before the price reduction and it is still worth the higher price. It is easy to set up. Only had a minor problem inserting the battery since the battery cover screw is somewhat small. The unit fits snugly into the clip holder. I use the strap with the small clip attached to my clothing for extra security but the unit has not dislodged during heavy exercising. I am using it for just a few days and it is accurate whether in my pocket or clipped to my clothing. The re-setting at 12MN is nice however there is no way to turn off the pedometer to prolong battery usage.
