How To Choose The Best Pedometer

Studies show that just wearing a pedometer can encourage you to walk an extra 2,000 steps a day.  Just this simple change can result in losing 8 pounds in a year.  Strive to get 10,000 steps in a day.  Here's what to look for if you are going to buy a pedometer.
Look for a display monitor you can easily read.
Choose a light weight model that has a safety clip. (so you won't lose it!)
Choose a pedometer that has a high accuracy rating.
Make sure it has a 7 day memory feature to track your weekly progress.
Choose one that resets automatically every day.
Make sure it is silent.  Some of them make a clicking noise.
A good pedometer will cost about $20.00.  The brand I like the best is the Omron 
HJ-112.  It has all the above features and is easy to operate.
