Since mid-September, I have been using Tanita's Calorism, a small portable device (supposed to be attached on the chest) that measure your calorie consumption, waking/running distance, steps taken (a la pedometer), active hours, and body fat burnt in real time. As I can see how many calories I burnt in real time, it is a great motivator to do more walking, house choir like cleaning or dish-washing (even cooking), and visiting gym in the evening. I am using the latest model of Calorism as shown below.
