Consumer Reports has spoken, and the magazine known for its expert product reviews proclaims some of our favorite pedometers and GPS watches as the best. What made the list? Well, we’re proud to say that five of our favorite products made the cut.
Consumer Reports’ top three pedometers had a few things in common: ease of use, affordability, and accurate step counting. The top picks were the Omron HJ112, Yamax CW-701 Digiwalker and the new Mio Trace. All of these pedometers are solid picks for anyone who enjoys walking, wants to start walking, or is conscious of how many steps taken in a day. These are also great picks for 5K walks and walkathons!
In addition to pedometers, Consumer Reports also named two of the top GPS watches, both of which we have ready in our selection – the Timex Global Trainer and the best-selling Garmin Forerunner 210. The Garmin Forerunner 210 GPS watch includes a $50 mail-in rebate and comes feature packed for easy monitoring of distance, heart rate, and other important fitness metrics. As for the Timex Ironman Global Trainer, this GPS watch with heart rate monitoring offers all the power you need to train for your next triathlon. The Timex Ironman Global Trainer GPS watch includes industry-leading GPS technology and monitoring for pace, speed, distance, heart rate and more in real-time on a customizable screen.
