Sportline ThinQ: Credit-card sized pedometer, touted as the world's thinnest, at three-sixteenths of an inch wide, that can stay hidden in pants or pocket.
Likes: Dream-come-true for stealth fitness walkers and people on the cutting edge. Sleek, 2-ounce design, made possible by a new measuring system, records steps, distance, calories.
Dislikes: No built-in clip for traditionalists (there is a corner key chain loop). No night light.
Price: $29.95. (800) 338-6337; www.sportline.com.
