A number of recent articles (such as this one from the New York Times) have talked about how arbitrary the recommendation of getting 10,000 steps a day is, the number created by a Japanese clock company in the 1960s to market its new pedometer. But it's still a great total to achieve, indicating for most people that they've covered about five miles; just adding an extra walk each day is great for your health, no matter how far you go. Some options for keeping track of your movements are the Garmin Forerunner 645 Music ($449.99) with GPS, which holds 500 songs, and the stylish and customizable Withings Steel HR with a 25-day battery life (left, $179.95). Still, Wired magazine calls the popular FitBit Versa Lite ($169.95) the best all-around tracker.
