Pedometer value

Iíve been using an Omron HJ-112 pedometer for years now. I know I paid less than $40 for it, although I donít remember exactly how much it was. I just noticed they are selling for $116 on Amazon right now. Thatís crazy!

I have the same one. I wonder if that's some kind of glitch because I checked it on camelcamelcamel and it's not that high and they are not selling on ebay for nearly that much either. Interesting!

I don't think Omron makes pedometers anymore. The one on Amazon is probably leftover stock sold by 3rd parties. I have a smartwatch now but still throw a cheap $20 pedometer in my pocket from time to time. I find a pedometer at the core of my body a lot more accurate than my wrist for counting steps.

The used ones on ebay selling for $20 are probably worth considering. There are probably a lot of people who don't use them anymore vs. the pedometer being worn out.

I have never stopped wearing my pedometer, despite being on my 4th Fitbit. I agree with Carly on the accuracy. I consider my pedometer numbers my official step count each day. I'm actually considering buying a backup one in case the company I like goes out of business.
