New iPod Nano Has Built-In Pedometer

The iPod Nano makes it easy to pump up your workouts with music, and now a new version just came out that wants to encourage you to move even more. It has a built-in pedometer! Pretty sweet, huh? As you walk or jog, it counts your steps and tells you how many calories you've burned. Talk about motivation. You'll want to park at the far end of the parking lot just to increase the number of your daily steps. The screen is slightly larger than the older version (2.2 inches), making it easier to see and scroll through your music playlists when on the move. There's also a microphone, so you can record a grocery or to-do list while sweating it out.

Not only that, this new Nano also has an FM radio, so if you prefer listening to your favorite station while exercising, you can. I love that it has a built-in video camera too, so if you see a snake while trail running, you can prove it to your pals. It comes in nine bright colors to suit your taste and it's pretty reasonably priced — 8GB for $149 and 16GB for $179.

If you must have this new iPod Nano, you're in luck. It's available in stores now or you can order one online. I want one, do you?

Does the pedometer work without the Nike Fit, because most of the other distant calculations and whatnot only work with the adapter and shoes :(

Oooh - x-mas wish for the hubby :) I have an IPOD shuffle and it's handy since it's so small but you can't plug it in to any other devices and it has no screen. It's time for an upgrade.

I have been thinking of buying one but now with FM radio and a pedometer - this is tempting.
