Omron is my favorite... very accurate.

One good pedometer plus calorie burner tracker is the body bugg. All data the device collects can be uploaded to a program on the internet. A bit pricey, but takes all the guessing out of how many calories your body is truly burning and how many steps are taken.

I was all set to buy an Omron when I decided to spend the extra $25 to get the FitBit. Coach Nancy's comment about the GPS has me thinking--if you have a smartphone, I think you can get a GPS/pedometer app. Voila! Completely college student friendly!

Omron makes really quality pedometers (see link below). Having one that has GPS capability allows you to track your steps without having to calibrate it at a track like the older pedometer versions once required.

I hope this helps!

I would really like to buy a pedometer since I live on a college campus and have to walk a lot. However, I'm a college student, so I can't afford high end pedometers like the FitBit. Ideally, it would be one that I could put in my pocket, but that doesn't matter too much. I definitely want one that isn't going to record all of my fidgeting and small movements in class, if possible. I definitely don't want to spend more than $30.

The SparkPeople Pedometer seems like a really good, cheap option, but I'd like some more information and reviews on it. Can anyone help a new girl out?
