Seiko Slimstick Measures Your Silly Walk

Seiko Slimstick

By Evan Ackerman

Pedometers are meant to measure the number of steps you take to give you a sense of how far you’ve gone, and by extension, how much exercise you’re getting. Unfortunately, there are some people out there who don’t walk… normally. The Seiko Slimstick uses dual-axis gyro sensors to to determine not only how many steps you take, but also what sorts of steps they are, to better reflect the amount of calories you’re burning and the overall quality of your exercise. It only weighs 15 grams (2cm x 6.4 cm x 0.89 cm) and clips right on to your clothing. It’s currently available from Seiko Japan in a couple different colors for between $55 and $67.

Since it’s Monday, enjoy some very very silly walks after the jump.
