If you are looking for a basic pedometer, the cost and performance of the LifeSpan MyStride is a good choice right now. The most important basic fitness tracker in our test, this device is perfect for the technophobe who wants to stay active. While its calorie count wasn't as accurate as others, the pedometer accurately displayed the number of steps on screen. Rather than using a smartphone app, data is synced to a computer and uploaded online. After an introductory period, users must pay a subscription fee to access the software. It is very easy to set your goals and then track progress in general, but the device is bulky exterior and difficult syncing process make it a better choice for the casual user.
