Striiv — Personal Trainer in Your Pocket

StriivA new kind of pedometer: a little gizmo about the size of one of those wireless key fobs. At heart, the Striiv is a pedometer — a little thing you slip in your pocket or clip to your belt to count the number of steps you take. But for $99, it’s equipped with a touch screen and various bells and whistles to encourage you to be more active. It seems to detect with reasonable accuracy whether you were walking or running or climbing stairs. Take enough steps and some money will be donated to preserve a patch of rain forest in Tanzania for a year, or provide clean drinking water to a child in a developing country, or get vaccines to those in need. The Striiv, connected to your computer through a mini-USB port, becomes sort of a mini-walkathon. www.striiv.com
