  1. Hi Jan, You asked me a question on my blog about my steps charting. I don’t know how to email you with the info so I’ll leave it here and also as a comment on my blog. I posted this a few days before the posting you saw:

    I use the “Omron HJ-720ITC Pocket Pedometer with Advanced Omron Health Management Software” available from Amazon for $32.99. I just hook the pedometer to my computer via USB and the pedometer info is transferred electronically to the software which gives me the lovely little record I posted. I was using an older version of an Omron pedometer (without software) which I loved, but I really wanted the software feature. I felt guilty about buying this one since my old one was a perfectly wonderful device, but I love this one even more because of the software. There are also Omron blood pressure monitors with the same software. They are: Omron HEM-790IT Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor with Advanced Omron Health Management Software and Omron HEM-670IT Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor with APS (Advanced Positioning Sensor) and Advanced Omron Health Management Software.

    If you had either of the above BP monitors, you could download the info from them into the same program as that of the pedometer and have an even more complete health record. Unfortunately, I bought a wonderful Omron BP monitor just before these software ones came out, so I don’t want to buy an updated one since I don’t take my BP very often. What I am hoping for — I should write the company and ask — is a scale with the software feature. Wouldn’t that be great? I would buy it immediately!

    Another thing I like about the software is that you don’t have to hook up to the computer every day. The pedometer displays your current day and previous seven days, but electronically keeps a record of 42 days worth of info that can be downloaded to your software.

    You can also create CSV files from the data for transferring to Excel.

  2. Thanks so much for all the info! I’ve been debating over which model of activity monitor tom get and this seems like a great, inexpensive one. Scuttling off to read more reviews…
