By January 22, 2013

Omron HJA-312 Activity MonitorOmron's latest addition to its pedometer family is the HJA-312 Activity Monitor. It's a highly accurate tri-axis accelerometer (as are their other new models) so you can carry it in a pocket or wear it on your waistband. How does it compare to the other recent models?

Omron HJA-312 Activity Monitor:

  • You can track individual workouts -- distance, time, and pace (but not steps), and review 14 in memory.
  • Set a weight loss goal and track your calorie-burning progress throughout the week, with 8-week memory.
  • The calories-burned total is the all-day total rather than just activity calories, making the number easier to balance against the calories you eat.
  • All-day steps, distance, total calories burned, and review 7 days in memory.
  • Doesn't track aerobic steps. Aerobic minutes are totaled for the current day only.
  • Optional Communications Tray coming soon to upload your data to the OmronFitness.com personal dashboard.
