If you want to focus on how much walking you are getting in every day, I recommend getting a Fitbit or a pedometer. These devices are small enough to take with you on your walks or put in your pocket while walking around at home. The Fitbit is more expensive, but it tracks walking and sleeps patterns. A cheaper option for sure would be a pedometer.

There are many different apps that you can download to help track walking. Check out the Apple store or the Google Play store and search walking.
