It's so little. I'd probably lose it.

Quoting Vertical15:


Fitbit


This unobtrusive, sleek, easy-to-use, and--let's just say it--cute little device tracks your every move with the same 3D technology that powers a Wii. It counts steps and motion, and tracks calories in and out each day to help you reach your fitness goals. Unlike similar (often bulkier) devices, you can wear Fitbit on a bra strap or in your pocket, and at night, on a wrist band to track your sleep patterns. Best of all, it uploads data to a personal tracking website wirelessly each time you pass by its base station, which is a huge time saver.

Cool.

Quoting Vertical15:



 




Garmin Forerunner 410


Workout junkies who love data will be instantly addicted to this one easy-to-wear GPS sport watch that does it all: records your time, pace, distance, heart rate, and elevation -- and even shows you the way home if you get turned around. When you finish a workout, it wirelessly uploads data and performance, so you can review your route and time. Best of all, you can create more than one training page for different members of the family.

Isn't that cheating?

Quoting Vertical15:



Garmin Approach G5


Help Dad take a few swings off his handicap and make the most of his (now-limited) time on the links with a golf GPS, which measures shot distances to show the exact yardage to fairways, hazards and greens, and doubles as a score tracker for groups of up to four.

 Thats what it says.  I've never seen one in action though.

So it attaches to the stroller?

Quoting Vertical15:

Strollometer New moms looking to get back into non-elastic pants ASAP will love being reminded that taking care of an infant burns plenty of calories. This clip-on device follows every revolution of your stroller tires to track the miles you put in making diaper runs, going to well-baby visits, and taking baby to meet the neighbors. The display shows speed and distance, daily mileage, and temperature--so you know when it's time to get out the baby blanket.
