Whether you're training for your first 5k or simply looking to count your steps a day, the Tech 4 O Accelerator Series Watch ($49.00) may be a good fit for you.
This cute (and functional) watch calculates speed, distance, and caloric expenditure along with steps traveled. How does it work? Well the user’s movement produces varying degrees of electric current within the sensor, allowing the watch to detect different levels of acceleration, and therefore measure speed and distance of the user (95 percent accurate). My only issue with it, as this is usually my complaint with all fitness watches, is that it does not read heart rate transmitters.
One day they'll make an affordable watch that does everything, until then we'll all just have to stick to having a few fitness gadgets. Buy it from Amazon.com.
