The Pedomostick

Posted in Exercise Gadgets by Conner Flynn on July 20th, 2009

The PedomostickJust because you use a walking stick it doesn’t mean that you can’t get in on the whole pedometer thing and count your steps. The Pedomostick from Hammacher Schlemmer is like a regular walking stick, but with an integrated pedometer that will count every step you take.

It will calculate the calories you’ve burned and it will measure the distance and time you’ve walked. That’s not all. It also comes with a built-in LCD in the handle to display all of those stats. Oh and there’s also an LED flashlight mounted in the shaft to light your way at night.

Personal Trainer: Walking for Nintendo DSi

Posted in Nintendo DSi by Conner Flynn on April 6th, 2009

Personal Trainer: Walking for Nintendo DSiThe Nintendo DSi just launched and already we can show you some hardware to buy for the new handheld. The folks over at Joystiq sat down with David Young, the assistant PR manager for Nintendo of America. Mr. Young said that DSi interaction with the Wii was “certainly a possibility,” but he didn’t say anything else on the matter.

He did let one thing out of the bag though. That the DSi will soon be interacting with some new peripherals in the form of a pair of pedometers that will ship with the Personal Trainer: Walking title. Apparently the devices connect wirelessly with the console. The game will be the first title where you can import a Mii character from the Wii. You can even attach one of the pedometers to your dog if you like, to gauge it’s exercise habits/needs.

GoWear fitThe new year will be here before you know it bringing with it the usual New Year’s resolutions from people. One of the most common resolutions is to lose weight. There are lots of gadgets available that can help people lose weight and reach fitness goals.

One of the newest gadgets is called the GoWear fit. The device is sort of like a super pedometer. It goes on the upper arm and includes an armband. It monitors all sorts of things for the wearer like steps taken, calories burned, amount of physical activity, sleep duration and efficiency.

Taxi Walker Pedometer shows you how much you save by walking

Taxi Walker Pedometer shows you how much you save by walkingThe Taxi Walker Pedometer from Japan gives you the usual calorie and distance measurements of a standard pedometer, but what’s interesting is that it integrates a meter displaying how much money you are saving by walking rather then taking a taxi the same distance. A good gadget to have in this economic climate.

Apparently, it’s fully programmable, and will calculate cab fares depending on your geographic location. You can even set it to make sound effects whenever a cab fare increases. The device is available in yellow, orange, white, or black for $29.00. Yeah, but will it yell at you in a foreign accent and honk an imaginary horn?

Nintendo’s pedometer is for the DS

Nintendo’s pedometer is for the DSSo, we have more info on that pedometer we told you about the other day. It’s not just a crap Wii-Fit add-on that threw our way to pacify us. It’s called the Life Rhythm Counter and is apparently for a fitness game on the DS (and new DSi?). The price is about $17, and interestingly the title lets you transfer Wii Miis to the DS. It traps their souls in there or something. Looks like it will be out in November.

Seiko Slimstick is like a tiny Richard Simmons

Seiko Slimstick is like a tiny Richard SimmonsPedometers are nothing new. They count the number of steps you take. Problem is, they don’t translate that figure into what’s needed to burn off all that junk food you cram down your pie-hole. Seiko has the answer in the form of it’s Slimstick. It’s like a tiny Richard Simmons in that it won’t let you cheat, no matter how hard you try and it is an exercise know-it-all. It won’t wear short shorts, talk all lispy and get into a fight with Dave Letterman…I hope.

It measures all of the work you do as you go about your day. It doesn’t just measure the number of steps you take, it uses sophisticated dual-axis accelerometers to measure the actual amount of work that is being done. With that information it calculates the number of calories burned. It will also store information about your routine, so that it can show you how you are progressing over time. It’s only the size of a pack of gum, so it won’t get in your way. The Slimstick is available in a variety of designer colors and finishes for around $60-70. But only in Japan.

Get fit with Ubisoft’s DS Pedometer

Ubisoft’s DS Pedometer
We told you about Ubisoft’s My Weight Loss Coach for the DS in February. Now more info is becoming available on the pedometer that goes with it. Unlike Wii-Fit, this will allow you to get some exercise outdoors.

Just carry it around with you all day, whether jogging or walking, then plug it in to your DS’s GBA slot to download data. Motivation is up to you. After all, quitting is as easy as shoving your DS in a deep dark corner somewhere and forgetting about your goal. Plus it’s easy to get distracted by Mario Kart or Metroid. Just an FYI, the guy in the pic doesn’t need this, he’s not fat. But he could use some Just For Men hair coloring. He does look happy about his little toy though.


PEGA SportGage Wii pedometer

PEGA SportGage Wii pedometer
PEGA SportGage Times Recorder works just like a pedometer. It will record how much you move when you play your favorite Nintendo Wii games and it can reach to 9,999. It’s powered by a button cell battery. So if you actually enjoy using your Wii for exercise, you might want one of these. Although you certainly don’t need this device to tell you that you are getting a workout.

For instance I know damn well that I’m working out while playing Mario & Sonic at The Olympics, because right now my arms are killing me and I get winded during the longer events. (Games did not used to be so much work) Still, if this appeals to you, and you feel like you need a little incentive, get one for $11.13. But what’s with the bone design? You know your dog is going to eat this right?

Credit card-sized ThinQ pedometer

Posted in Exercise Gadgets by Reuben Drake on September 21st, 2007

Sportline ThinQ pedometer is as thin as a credit card and tracks steps while walking for exerciseThere’s been days when I’ve come home from my job (not this job) where I’m on my feet all the time and wondered just how many miles I walk in an actual day. Wearing a pedometer would be a good way to find out but having some little gadget clipped to my belt causes everyone I run into at the office to ask what the little thing is that I have clipped to my belt.

The ThinQ pedometer from Sportline is about the size of a credit card (3mm thick) and easily fits into your pocket or even your wallet giving you discrete tracking of your steps, distance traveled and calories burned. It also houses a sports timer and comes in colors of blue, orange or green, retailing for about $35.

Measure Your Best Friends Exercise

Posted in Exercise Gadgets by Darrin Olson on January 21st, 2007

Pet Pedometer for your dogDogs need gadgets too, and there is no reason that all of the exercise you’re pet is doing with you shouldn’t be measured as well. I know that when I take my dog for a walk, he covers three times the distance that I do just by running around and sniffing stuff. It would be interesting to know just how much distance a dog goes in a day.

This Doggy Pedometer won’t measure the actual distance, but like a human pedometer it measures the number of steps and can record up to 100,000 of them. Measure your pets stride and with some simple math you can have the distance. The pedometer for your pet also has a timer on it and doubles as a dog tag where you can write some information on the back.
