Walking is considered by fitness experts to be one of the best forms of exercise, but it doesn't require the intensity that many athletes and fitness buffs need for fast progression toward their goals. For that, a running routine is necessary. Unfortunately, most pedometers that came in handy while walking are not capable of tracking the faster pace and longer strides used while running. That's why the leading manufacturers have designed running pedometer models capable of meeting these extra demands.
Some examples include the Yamax SW701, the Accusplit AE190XLG and the LifeSource XL-18. Each of these has many functions beyond a traditional pedometer as well as the capability to track steps at speeds much faster than walking. For those who want the most out of their running pedometer, two other models make the most of available technology.
