    not worth the money for me

        i saved my pennies for this thing for a while and am pretty disappointed. i bought it to help me lose the "last 10 pounds" hoping it would show me something i'm missing in my diet/workout routine. i can see it being very educational/interesting for someone who doesn't know the basic math of losing weight, but as someone who's been losing weight for 3 years i should have just stuck to an online calorie counter and saved myself some money. i basically use it as a deluxe pedometer.

        it was very very easy to set up and use, but the food tracker was lacking. i had to manually add a lot of foods and recipes (like tortilla shells...).

          No more guessing on your calorie burn. The band does all the work. Very motivating! Makes you want to work hard to meet your goals each day.

              I've never been good at tracking my workout routine + food intake, so the BodyMedia was fabulous for that and I was able to see online the calories in and calories out! It takes some dedication to keep up with, but a very effective tool. I am on Jenny Craig and was very please to see that they had all of the Jenny meals in the system, so that made the food logging even easier.

              I would have given it 5 stars if it had a disply on the unit.

                      I've always been loyal to my heart rate monitor and use it for every workout. I was hoping this armband would be a replacement for using a heart rate monitor, but it seems like more of an additional tool to track your workout and eating habits. It's very useful for automatically tracking your activity throughout the day and serves as a constant reminder when you're about to snack that you're going to have to record that snack later.

                      Overall, it is comfortable and lightweight, but I really wish I could wear it without feeling the need to also wear a heart rate monitor. I believe Body Media also offers an additional "display" accessory, but that only shows calories burned for the day and doesn't provide the immediate feedback to press yourself more/less during a workout.

                        This product is very, very cool. You are able to look at your entire day (food, wake, sleep, active, non active) as a whole picture instead of just your diet and exercise. I would say, for people really trying to get a grip on their entire lifestyle - this product is amazing. It does take some commitment though, you have to wear the armband 24 hours a day as well as subscribe to the service ($) so for a casual diet/exerciser like myself it might be a bit too much. Wonderful product, just not for me.

                          Part of any weight loss program is keeping a food/activity diary. This little gadget makes it a whole lot easier to do.
                          After the first day or so, I didn't even really notice it was on my arm, and it certainly didn't make me change the way I would dress (office, etc.) I had no problem sleeping in it either.
                          I don't know about most people, but I was pretty surprised at just how much activity I was engaged in on a daily basis, and the sleep data was pretty interesting as well.
                          Once you sign up for the on-line program, you put in your foods, it track your activity, and you can tell it your target weight. You may surprise yourself by how much or how little you are truly active - and be able to make small changes that translate into better numbers.
                          I'm definitely not a dedicated dieter (ok, make that 'not a dieter at all'), but I am very active. This device helped me put it all together and get a good picture of what's going on.
                          I think the price *might* scare some people away, but honestly I think it's worth it. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star was the (albeit small) monthly on-line fee.

                          I have been using this product daily for nearly a month now and I LOVE it with a few exceptions. The data that it provides is amazing! I know where I am lacking and where I need to focus my energy each day when it comes to calories in & calories out. I also love that I can see how much sleep I'm getting each night and being able to tie that back to my energy level each day. If you want to know exactly how your body is working when it comes to burning calories this product is great!

                          Now for my exceptions: The CORE doesn't have the bluetooth feature. Which means you have to remove it and plug it in (Sync), in order to view your data. I would prefer to have the LINK that can provide feedback directly to my phone via the BodyMedia App. However, being that the cord used to Sync is very standard my solution to this was to have one cord at work and one at home. This way I can check my progress during the day and make adjustments as needed. Secondly, I think that there shouldn't be a fee associated with using the BodyMedia. These are great products and they are an investment. Monthly subscription fees are just overkill. My only other issue is that the food tracking aspect of the website/app could be better. I have used a few different sites/apps for this and will most likely continue to do so and just plug in totals at the end of the day.

                          I do highly recommend this product. It is light, I forget I have it on most of the time and the information it gives you is incredible. As someone who has struggled with diet & exercise this has opened my eyes to a whole new world. It really gives you more knowledge, which helps you focus on making the right choices. You get to see the outcome of your choices each day. And there is nothing better than that triumphant felling you get when you look at your numbers and realize you are beating your goals and getting it done!
