Best accuracy yet from a pedometer with sensor technology 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 money.


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 it does.


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 pedometers.)


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.
