Disclosure: I received a free Omron GOsmart Pace/Distance tracker for this review, as well as a free t-shirt, water bottle and ear buds.
I figured if I walked up the big $&%^-ing hill to the bakery shop, I deserved to have a cupcake at the top, so I set off on my walk. Then I turned around on my front porch, went back inside and grabbed the Omron GOsmart Pace/Distance Tracker I was sent to review because this seemed like the perfect time to see if it could actually measure my pace, distance, steps, calories burned, and all that fancy stuff it claimed to do.
I’ve mentioned in the past that I’m not really a pedometer person, but I was interested in this device because it calculates your pace, which I *am* interested in.

As usual with my cleaning sprees, I don’t start out with the intention to declutter my shelves or shred a year’s worth of credit card statements. I start with a simple task, like sorting all the swag I scored at FitBloggin’, and then I find myself on a roll, until I’ve filled up a trash bag with unneeded items, including a broken garden gnome I realize I’m never going to superglue back together.
One item I got at FitBloggin’ is the Weight Watchers POINTS Pedometer. It’s a pretty sweet pedometer, by far the fanciest one I’ve owned. It calculates how many POINTS you’ve earned by walking, how far you’ve traveled, and even tells you the time. Sadly, however, I’m just not a pedometer person. I know I’m never going to use this thing, so I thought I’d give it away instead, hopefully to some Weight Watchers member who will truly enjoy it.
