@gollum,
I would just google "pedometer faq" or "pedometer reviews". That eliminates a large percentage of the sales sites.

Why not just goto amazon.com in the first place?

Why do you want (need) one?

(That constant clicking really got to me when I used it for walking. Plus, if you don't place it just right, it doesn't work)

I got my pedometer at Target for less than $20. It works great after you calibrate it for your typical (normal) stride length. You place it on your belt right over the midline of the width your leg at where the crease in your pants lies.

@sullyfish6,
Why ask why?

Not all pedometer's have annoying clicks.

most work off the pendulum motion of a person's natural gait. You need to place them on a spot in your belt that corresponds with the middle of one's leg. That's just how they work and it's really not too hard to set up.

Omron Digital Premium Pedometer is $36 and is consumer approved.

I think mine is about a $20 Sportline
