The New Slim Design Omron HJ-112 vs. the Omron HJ-112
The above picture shows the new Omron HJ-112 and the previous Omron HJ-112 models. Omron removed the reset button from the previous HJ-112 model. Hence, there are only three buttons in the new slim design Omron HJ-112 compared to the previous four button Omron HJ-112 model.
The HJ-112 is the best selling pedometer on Amazon.com. Surprisingly, it is within the top five best selling items in Amazon the category for “Health & Personal Care”.
The Omron HJ-112 is very reasonably priced on Amazon in the $25 price range.
Click the link below to go to Amazon and and buy the Omron HJ-112, but first, let me give you a tip about buying on Amazon. If your order is over $25, shipping is free. The Amazon Free Super Saver Shipping pays for orders of products over $25 sold by Amazon.
Here is an example of an order for an Omron HJ-112. The pedometer is priced just under $25 so it does not qualify for FREE Super Saver Shipping and the shipping cost is $5.14.
If you can find an item that you need and combine it with your HJ-112, you can apply the shipping cost to the second product. I added the book Pedometer Walking: Stepping Your Way to Health, Weight Loss, and Fitness ($10.36) and the total order only increased $5.22. This means that the $10.36 book only cost $5.22. I consider that a bargain.
