LAKE FOREST, Ill. — Omron Healthcare on Monday launched the Alvita Ultimate Pedometer, which replaces its HJ-112 model. The new pedometer uses Tri-Axis technology to count steps accurately almost anywhere the device is positioned, including the hip, pocket or a purse. It has four activity modes for both regular and aerobic activities, and stores up to seven days of information on the display.
Research shows using a pedometer can increase physical activity and be a great motivational tool to help people reach 10,000 steps a day. The new pedometer is smaller than previous models but features a large easy-to-read screen.
“Exercise enthusiasts have counted on our Dual-Axis HJ-112 model for 10 years, so we knew we had to make the Alvita the best new pedometer on the market,” stated Jill Person, senior product manager, fitness, Omron Healthcare. “Our goal is to make counting steps easy and enjoyable, which is why the Tri-Axis technology is so fantastic — it keeps track of your movements no matter where it is on your body.”
The Alvita Ultimate Pedometer is available in two colors — blue and light gray — for a suggested retail price of $29.99.
