so when i update my cell phone i noticed a new applicatoin that basically act as a pedometer counting steps per day and keeping track. i'm supposing it's using the built in accelerameter.
anywho, i noticed the magic number was 10,000 steps per day so i did some research and saw that was the recommended amount.
so i was thinking to get some pedometers for the in-laws to keep them healthy. i figure it'll be a good motivator. i have no idea which one to get. the price range is 5-60 bucks so i'm not sure where to start. i would say it doesnt have to be incredibly accurate. what should i be looking for?
i guess i'm looking for something that can be worn all day and last a while without replacing the batteries. anyone have any experience with these things?
I have one by Omron. It seem accurate enough and is compact enough to not be a bother. It's an HJ-720 or something clost to that.
