A few week’s ago, I decided to make a major purchase. It was a bodybugg! If you have never heard of it then you are going to learn how technology is going to hold me accountable.
Combined with a web-based program, the bodybugg makes it easy to manage the calories I consume and burn so that I can stay in control of my weight.
Now you might be asking how this thing works. It’s simple….The bodybugg system uses a patented process to measure calorie burn. The process is based on:
Motion: The armband contains an accelerometer that measures motion from multiple perspectives.
Steps: The accelerometer counts steps by measuring the distinct patterns created by running or walking.
Galvanic skin response: When you sweat, your skin becomes more electrically conductive. This measurement helps the device understand how active you are.
Skin temperature: There’s an electronic thermometer inside your armband that monitors how hot you are.
Heat flux: When you move, your muscles produce heat. Your armband measures the heat that’s flowing from your body into the environment.
Pretty cool, huh!?
For me, I want to be able to see exactly how I am performing for the day. It helps keep me accountable. I like the fact too, that during the first week of use, I lost 3 pounds by staying on track! Of course everyone is different and will have a their own use for this product but I’m pretty excited about the good things that are going to happen! Want more info on the bodybugg, click here.
That's super cool! I've really wanted to get a bodybugg for a while. Gotta start saving…
