I was in need of a pedometer as my previous one had broken. The add for this pedometer had three different pedometers in the photo, so I was unclear which I was going to get. I selected the advanced and I am glad I did. Although the heart rate monitor is a bit tricky (you have to hold your index finger over the sensor), I think it was a fair purchase. It came with a CD which had a few work-outs on it.
