New pedometer pulls out all stops

maplin pedometer

This new pedometer from Maplin Electronics is coming out at the perfect time of year for all of you who �vow� to start exercising this year. The pedometer not only acts as a pedometer, but also as a panic alarm and an FM radio. First off, the FM radio is a nice little add-on to the pedometer, so you don�t have to carry another device when you�re running. Now the panic alarm, on the other hand, is a little strange; they say you can use it when you feel threatened while you�re running; if it�s so scary out there in the big world, why don�t you just run home? Just a thought.

Anyways, the part that you care about most, the pedometer part (go figure), has many features to keep you running (no pun intended) with your New Year�s Resolution. These features include a step counter, distance traveled display, a calories-burnt indicator, a stopwatch, and a lap counter. At $20, this might be the perfect after-Christmas gift to remind you of your New Year�s resolution in a week when you get it; oh yeah, and once you start using too of course. Too bad it doesn�t have an annoying voice that yells �you need to run!� when you haven�t run for a few days. — Nick Rice
