Take a look at the Silva EX30 Connect Pedometer. It's the new age of Pedometer. Instead of using the standard 'pendulum' like step counter inside that vibrates every time you make a defined movement the new range use 3D Sensors. The use of these sensors means the pedometer can be positioned at most angles, stick it in your pocket, in your bag or around your neck and it'll keep on going.
The Silva EX30 Connect measures step counts, distance, calories and also comes with an automatic timer. One of the most impressive features of the Connect is the fact it comes with USB access that can be hooked up to silvaconnect.com where all your exercise results can be uploaded, targets can be set and you can compare and contrast with friends workout regimes.
When the Pedometer isn't in use, it also has a sleep mode function, saving battery life. Other features include a 7 day memory, automatic reset at midnight function and a step barometer that help's the user reach and maintain the recommended 10,000 steps per day.
Although you can stick it in your pocket or bag, for the best access it's probably best and easiest to wear it around you neck using the included lanyard that also features a safety release. When it comes into stock the EX30 Connect will cost around £40 and comes in Blue.
