Conclusion: The Omron is the least expensive "stand alone" device in our test. Although it is cheaper, despite its name, the Nike+ Stand Alone requires a smartphone or iPod to collect and display the distance data it collects. The Omron is as accurate as is necessary, and stores seven days of data for basic comparisons and motivation. It is half the price of the Editors' Choice winning Fitbit Flex .
Summary: Because the Omron GoSmart Pocket Pedometer HJ-112 boasts dual-tracking accelerometers, battery life suffers. Owners must buy more batteries than with other tracking devices, but the CR2032 battery is easily replaced by users. The pedometer, excluding the battery, is covered under a one-year limited manufacturer warranty. Owners post no feedback on Omron's customer service.
Pros: Tracks intensity, distance, calories, Uses dual accelerometers, Can be used in a bag or pocket, Tracks two types of steps
