I've been wearing as many as five different pedometers at a time to produce reviews. The latest crop includes those that use Bluetooth to sync to a cell phone app. I love that, as I've had trouble with my pure cell phone apps going nutsy when the GPS signal is weak. They say I've done 1-minute miles and I doubt I deserve to make the record books. I also forget to log off the app before I take off for home in my car, which really brings down my minutes-per-mile. The Bluetooth-enabled pedometers are more reliable.
- Review: Striiv Play: This pedometer and app is pure, addictive fun, and your friends can play along with you with the free app.
- Review: BodyMedia FIT LINK: This is a serious activity monitor and diet tracker with a colorful app.
