Talking Pedometer

This gadget keeps track of how many steps you've taken and the distance you've travelled and then on request speaks this information to you. There are also seven tunes which adjust their tempo to the rhythm of your pace. You can also set four alerts to time your workout.


The unit clips to shirt or waistband. The information is displayed on the LCD screen.

Batteries are included.


Price: £15 inc. VAT from Gadgetshop


Star Rating: 8 Stars - One step up (ouch!) from your run of the mill (ouch again) pedometer. Fun and it might even help you stay healthier
