Know your body and change your life with this health tracking device.
BodyMedia is a device that measures your personal caloric burn throughout any given day. It works hand-in-hand with an online program where you enter your caloric intake for a day to give you a very personal caloric deficit based upon your entries. You will no longer have to question whether or not you are working hard enough again.
There are three different armbands to choose from.
- The classic BodyMedia armband is called the Armband Advantage.
- There is also a Bluetooth enabled armband called the BodyMedia Link Armband.
- The third is the newest of the three called the BodyMedia Core armband, which is a third smaller than the Armband Advantage.
All of the BodyMedia products work the same way to produce accurate results.
BodyMedia works like this: You wear a small armband on your upper left arm 24 hours a day. The device measures how many calories your body is burning based upon your activity level, body heat, weight, and all of the other pre-entered information in your online program. The BodyMedia armband also has a pedometer built in, so you will always know how many steps you are taking at every moment of the day. It also measures what you are burning while you sleep and even tells you when/if you wake up in the middle of the night.
If you pair your BodyMedia armband with the digital display, that is optional, you will always have real-time information about where your calorie burn is and much more. If you do not have the digital display, you can enter all of your information to your Activity Manager as much as you would like throughout the day, although most people enter it once a day, usually at night.
The only time you shouldn't wear the BodyMedia is when you are swimming or showering because the device is not waterproof. It isn't too bulky and should be worn high enough to cover it up, unless you are wearing a strapless shirt or tank top. Even then, there are different colored straps and armbands to choose from, and BodyMedia even has skins for their devices so you can match every occasion.
The reason the BodyMedia is more accurate than other devices is because it uses multiple sensors to track activity levels instead of just one sensor like many heart rate monitors. It is also very personalized for each person, which helps with accuracy.
