Put a Pedometer on your wish list

A study released Tuesday states that individuals using a pedometer tend to lose weight, have lower blood pressure and exercise more than those not using the handy gadget.

The study attributes users’ goals to meet or beat the 10,000 steps/day rule as part of the success. Pedometer users walk about 2,000 more steps each day than those not using one.

Pedometers don’t really get in the way, are light weight and easy to clip on to your pants. Each step is recorded throughout the day. They range in price from about $1.19-$32.95– making it a perfect holiday gift.
