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.
