• I don’t much like this new Pedometer; I miss my Omron.

    While I like that it’s got a cover that you keep closed, so that wearing the pedometer doesn’t look like you’re wearing a pedometer if you don’t want to, there are problems I’ve encountered. 

    One problem with the new pedometer is that you have to be so very exact in how you wear it in order for it to count your steps.  The bigger problem is the clip; it’s not very accomodating. 

    With my Omrom, I could clip it to my underwear and thusly keep it hidden away while I’m at work, or out and about in the world and not wanting to advertise that I’m wearing a pedometer.  I tried this with the Yamax, and for some odd reason, it doesn’t register the steps taken.  The Omron had a nice large clip with the arm device much like a clothespin, so I was able to clip it over things like a leather belt I would wear with certain slacks or over thick workout clothes.  The clip on the Yamax is very tight, with no arm device, and you can’t clip it to anything thick. In fact, it warns you not to (the reason I see is that the clip will most likely break).  The painful problem with the Yamax is the small safety clip that you attach to another item of clothing in the event the pedometer slips, the leashed safety clip will prevent you from losing it.  That clip is very painfully sharp.  The safety clip on the Omron was smooth and gentle.

    I bought myself a few new things last night.  I am now officially in a size 16 again.  I am happy dancing.
