I need a new watch for timing myself on my runs, but I figured as long as I was buying a new watch, I should get one with a pedometer on it as well. Amazon sells a number of these- most manufactured by Reebok, CardioSport, Polar, Omran, Oregon, Freestyle, Sportline, or Timex. Many of these have heart rate monitors, and that would be a definite plus. I was never a runner. Does anyone know which is the benchmark brand? Or is it more model-to-model? In that case, how much should I expect to spend to get a pedometer with reliable readings (steps, distance, etc.)? Is there a specific model out there that is the one to buy? Any info appreciated. Thanks.
