We've had good luck with refurbished Garmin Vivofits of each generation. My wife still wears a Vivofit 3. Another advantage with them is the no charging and long battery life. They claim a year but it's probably closer to six months, but still pretty nice. My expensive Fenix has to be charged about once a week:
I prefer to track distance, not steps. Easier and more relevant to me.

I have not had much success with pedometers in the past due to not being able to set my stride with the device. I would like specific recommendations of very simple to use trackers. I am over 60 and my phone is not a smart phone. I would just like a gadget to wear that says how many steps I took so I can be inspired to get in a few more. I don’t need to have it tie into computer data, or tell me my heart rate, etc. Please let me know what you used and how simple it was. I don’t need another device that I can’t get to work for me. Thank you for your patience.
