A Pokéwalker in real life.
All the 28-year-olds are doing it!
If it's a Pokéwalker, then why would he wear them if he isn't walking?
Artist's hypothetical depiction of the Pokéwalker of Fail.

The Pokéwalker of Fail is one of Chris' most recently-appearing relics.

Pokéwalkers are best described as hybrids of a pedometer (unfortunately, not a pedo-meter) and a Poké Ball-shaped Tamagotchi. They were originally bundled with the Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver games. Chris is using it not because he's interested in his health and wishes to monitor his exercise, but because you can place a Pokémon in the device and gain experience points for it, find items, or catch more Pokémon by walking. While the item is meant to encourage exercise among nerds, Chris sports not one but three in an attempt to triple his gains with 1/3rd of the effort. In a way, this makes Chris even more lazy.

Chris, being the artistic fellow that he is, repainted his with Sonichu's colors as an imitation of an S-Chu Ball.

It made its début on 6 June 2010 and later appears with him in public during the events of the Fridays After Five Concert that Chris attended on 18 June. Another picture of Chris on July 9th shows that he owns at least two Pokéwalkers he hasn't customized. Normally, one Pokéwalker is included with HeartGold and SoulSilver, so either he bought an extra walker off the website or an extra copy of either HeartGold or SoulSilver. Most likely the second option, as you can't take more than one Pokémon from the same game out on the Pokéwalker at a time.
