Physical activity is essential to staying healthy, and every small step can lead to big improvements. An accurate Omron Pedometer, like the HJ-321, is a partner that motivates you to take those extra steps toward better health and increased energy. Just wear it on your hip or place it in your bag or pocket. It accurately counts every step, using Omron's renowned accelerometer technology. The HJ-321 Pedometer is specially designed for power walking and aerobic exercise. It counts your aerobic steps separately from normal walking steps, as well as the distance, calories burned, and time you've traveled, giving you more information about your overall activity level.
You'd be surprised by how many steps you already take each day: a few hundred walking to the bus; a couple thousand going a few blocks down for lunch. With an Omron Pedometer, you'll know just how many steps you're taking and begin looking for ways to see that number get bigger every day.
Omron Pedometers use smart sensor technology rather than the standard pendulum system to get a more accurate reading.
Omron Tri-Axis Technology--Counts steps accurately and quietly, whether positioned flat, vertically, or horizontally.
Two Kinds of Steps--Tracks both regular and aerobic ("brisk") steps separately.
Daily Distance and Calories Burned--Calculates and better tracks health.
Automatic Reset--Starts with a clean slate each day to track your steps more accurately.
Weekly Log--Stores up to seven days of information in memory; resets to zero at midnight, so you're ready to go every morning.
Four Tracking Modes--Tracks normal walking steps, aerobic "brisk" steps, calories, and distance.
Walking is a great way to stay healthy. In fact, walking 10,000 steps a day is widely recommended by health and fitness professionals. And when you track your steps with a pedometer, like the Omron HJ-321, studies show you're likely to increase your total number of steps a day by about 2,000, or 1 mile.*
Warm Up First--Before you walk, stretch (arm circles, hip circles, and leg lifts) to get your blood flowing and reduce the risk of injury.
Use a Pedometer--An Omron Pedometer is the partner you can count on to accurately track your daily routine and help you reach your recommended 10,000 daily steps.
Set Goals--Begin slowly and work your way up. By setting goals, you'll push yourself farther and achieve more.
Mix It Up--Add variety to your routine by changing pace, walking uphill, or just changing your route.
Add Resistance--Include some upper-body exercises as you walk, such as arm reaches or carrying water bottles in each hand to increase your calorie burn.
