Gaiam Calorie Coach G1: Pedometer For Women?

This handy dandy calorie counter is specifically designed for women, though why it wouldn’t work just as well for a man is beyond us. Yes, it’s small, though we’d argue it’s not fashionable (green?) but who cares about that when you’re working out? If you’re serious about calories burned then you want a product that does the job, not a gadget that positions itself as “fashionable.”
