I'm really only interested in the number of steps per day so am very happy with this.
The only real negative is the printing on the single button on the device - with frequent use the printing will rub off with in few months.
Other issues: The device does consider walking speed when calculating calories burnt.
The clip on the safety leash is only plastic and will break easily - handle with care.
Wish list: It would be nice if it could record and remember several activities and not just the last one and if came with a metal clip on the safety leash.

2. However, after using various pedometers, I would highly suggest that one purchase the Omron Tri-axis pedometer for the following reasons:
a. This one doesn't have the ability to clip on to a belt; many would like to utilize it this way. This unit come with a lanyard type device with a clip; but you can't put it on a belt.
b. The most important issue is this: there are times that you're just going to want to put the pedometer in your pocket, purse, backpack... and when you put it in your pocket, there is no way you can ensure that the pedometer is laying in the correct position so as to ensure proper counting of steps (as you have to do with this unit). However with the triaxis model, it'll count steps in basically any orientation, which once you start using a pedometer, 99% of people are going to realize is a must have function.
3. Thus, although this is a good pedometer with nice functions, you might as well spend the extra bucks and get the much better and versatile Omron Tri-axis model.
The HJ-203 is small and light, with an easy to read large display.
- Accurately counts steps whether it is in my pocket, on my belt, or in my purse.
- Fastens securely with a locking clip
- 7 day history for steps, distance, & calories (with a separate counting for exercise/action mode)
- Special mode for exercise - this really helped accuracy while running!
I would highly recommend this pedometer. And as a fun feature, if you make the 10,000 step goal, there is a small figure on the display celebrating your accomplishment!
When I started my Weight Watcher's program, I needed a new pedometer to help me keep track of Activity Points. I purchased the WW brand, first. Took it back. I tried another brand. Took it back. I ended up buying two Omrons just in case I put one through the wash. So far, I'm still on the first one! I've been in the program over a year.
Then, Amazon Vine gave me the opportunity to review the Omron Jj-203 Pedometer with Activity Tracker. I've been using it for the last couple of weeks. So, what's different about this pedometer?
Just like my other Omron, I can put it in my pocket and go. At the end of the day, I can see how many steps I've taken and log them in my Weight Watcher app on my iPhone.
OR, I can set a goal for 15,000 steps to motivate me to walk more than normal. Then I keep walking the day away until I reach my goal.
OR, I can keep track of my normal steps as above, AND, in addition to that, using the Activity Tracker, keep track of specific workouts, such as time on the elliptical or a walk, jog or run.
At the end of the day, I press Memo and see how many total steps I took and how many of them were workout steps. This helps me keep a more accurate record of Activity Points for programs like Weight Watchers.
It took me a bit to figure out how to activate the Activity Tracker, but it's really easy. You just have to hold the button down for at least 2 seconds to activate or deactivate.
The pedometer measures distance, calories and fat burned. Set up was super easy, as typical for all the Omron pedometers I've tried. All you do is enter your height and weight. The pedometer estimates your stride for you. Or you can follow the directions to input your actual stride.
It's lightweight and easily fits in your pocket. It's actually so thin, I can fit it in the same pocket as my iPhone. I like that!
Unlike other reviewers, I didn't find a problem with how it was positioned. It worked either in my pocket or hanging on a lanyard.
5 Stars for this one!
Tracking the number steps (and distance) are quite accurate eventhough the screen display doesn't always update with every steps (sometime it updated after I walked 10 steps, some other time 17 steps, basically random, not sure what logic it uses, maybe it updates every couple of seconds)
I'm not sure how accurate the calories and fat grams burned information, as I don't know whether this pedometer will adjust the formula (on calculating calories and fat grams burned) depending on the speed of the steps. My recommendation is to use the calories and fat grams burned information as a guideline/directional only and use other equipment if you need an accurate measurement.
Once I find out how many steps I take in a day I'm curious to see what's the average statistics look like and I found these info/recommendation (instead of just aiming for 10,000 steps) on the web from Dr. Catrine Tudor-Locke:
1. Under 5000 steps per-day may be used as a "sedentary lifestyle index"
2. 5,000-7,499 steps per-day is typical of daily activity excluding sports and might be considered "low active"
3. 7,500-9,999 likely includes some exercise or walking and might be considered "somewhat active"
4. 10,000 steps per-day indicates the point that should be used to classify individuals as "active"
5. Individuals who take more than 12,500 steps per-day are likely to be classified as "highly active"
