measures calories, fat burned, steps and distance.
Omron HJ-113-E Walking Style II Review
Our price £34.99
As a regular pedometer user I was looking forward to trying
out this pedometer with it's new sensor technology, however at
almost twice the price of the old traditional style pedometer
(HJ-109) I was keen to see if it would be worth the extra
New technology often means more buttons and more
complicated, but not in this instance. With still only three
buttons I couldn't really go wrong, and there isn't a
sensitivity switch that you need to play with to get the best
accuracy like on most traditional style pedometers.
Because the Walking Style 2 doesn't rely on your hip
movement to count steps, it should work in your pocket, bag or
when worn around your neck. And I'm glad to say I tried it and
This is really great for being discreet about wearing a
pedometer and having it in my pocket or bag meant I didn't
keep forgetting to put it on, as I tend to take mine off while
I'm sat down stopping it counting steps from me wiggling about
at my desk. (Plus it doesn't count sitting down/standing up as
a step - a common problem with traditional pendulum
I was a little suspicious of the aerobic mode but now
really like it. You don't have to change it yourself, the
Walking Style 2 does it for you, and it means that you can see
how many steps you have done just going about your business
and then how many you have done when exercising. But I would
like to be able to see a combined daily total which is at
present not available.
If you are looking to get fit or lose weight I think this
is the best pedometer on the market at the moment because of
aerobic mode which is not available on the former pendulum
reliant pedometers. As well as the accuracy being fantastic
the other killer feature is fat burned (g) when you have
activated the aerobic mode, add that to all the other regular
features and it's hard to say it's not worth the extra.
A traditional pedometer will do the job, but if you are
serious about your fitness or using a pedometer as part of a
weight loss programme the Walking Style 2 is definitely worth
the extra money.
