Pro Well-suited for seniors
Omron Ultimate pedometer has a large readable display and big distinct buttons, making it a great option for the elderly who want to keep fit.
Pro Easy to wear discreetly
The pedometer is small and unnoticeable. You can put it in your pocket or attach to your belt without worrying if it's going to ruin your outfit.
Pro Records essential fitness data
Omron Ultimate Pedometer records total steps per day, aerobic steps, calories burned, and distance walked.
Pro Small and lightweight
Omron pedometer is very small and light (it weighs less than an ounce). Once you put it in your pocket, you will hardly feel it.
Pro Recognizes active workout
When you're walking more than 60 steps per minute for more than 10 minutes, Omron counts that as Aerobic steps. They have the most impact on your calorie burn, so tracking them helps to better monitor your fitness progress.
Pro Gives accurate stats taking personal data into account
To get the most accurate fitness data, you can input your height and weight into the tracker. It then calculates your stride length and uses it to more precisely record your data - steps total and distance traveled. Alternatively, you can set your stride length manually.
Pro Automatic battery saving mode
The screen automatically turns off after 5 minutes since the last button was pressed. The sensor still keeps counting and recording steps, so no progress is lost.
Pro Extremely long battery life
The battery of this Omron pedometer lasts about 6 months.
Pro Comes with a hip strap
The tracker comes with a separate holder that can be attached to your belt/hip for convenient wear.
Pro Accurately tracks steps in any position
Thanks to the tri-axis technology, Omron pedometer accurately tracks your steps regardless of how it’s positioned – vertically, horizontally, or otherwise. You can put it in your pocket or just drop it into your bag or purse and be sure that you get precise fitness stats.
Con Memory only lasts 7 days
Because the workout log is only kept for a week, you can’t monitor your overall, long-term progress.
Con Easy to lose
The holder on the hip strap is flimsy, so the pedometer can easily fall off and get lost. And because it’s so light, you probably won’t notice when it does.
Con You eventually have to replace the battery
Even though the battery lasts for a long time, you will be eventually required to buy a new one for $2-3 as a replacement.
Con Doesn’t connect with your smartphone
You will not be able to get notifications from your phone, control your playlist, or use the GPS.
