  • I have one and I love it! I've been using it since December and I've lost over 50 lbs. It has made me accountable to myself since I know that I am going to be updating it daily as well as inputting my caloric intake. I weigh out all of my food and feel guilty when I sit for very long. I won't make my burn today, but I just changed my plan to maintenance about 2 minutes ago. It has been invaluable to myself and to DH. He has lost over 70 lbs since December.
    They are so worth the $200. I wear mine all the time unless I'm the shower or a pool.

  • A Body Bug or bodybugg is a 24 hour Fitness biometric calorie management system. It has four sensors which collect data from one’s body and arranges it as per the age, weight and gender.
    Bodybugg is an excellent way to lose weight, the healthy way.

    It utilizes a patented process for interpreting calorie burn called "sensor fusion" developed by BodyMedia, Inc. This process involves collecting a range of body-data using multiple physiological sensors instead of a single sensor, which is what other calorie estimation devices such as pedometers and heart rate monitors rely on.

  • lmao!! I know what you are talking about now, I see them all the time at 24 Hour Fitness. I'm interested in them as well, aren't they suppose to keep track of how many calories your body burns throughout the day?
