    Hi

    I want to start walking and was wondering which would be more beneficial to me.

    I understand the aim is to get in 10000 strps per day, and looking around most pedometers give a calorie burned figure too.

    Although I understand hrm's would give a more accurate calorie count.

    Im confused lol x

    a HRM is only useful during exercise where you need to monitor it. i would say a pedometor is useful but not 100% accurate. 10,000 steps is 5 miles. if you want to be 100% accurate the only thing you can do is buy a sat nav, but this is quite expensive or has the potential to be.

    If you are doing nothing but walking in your exercise regime, I reckon a pedometer would be fine x
