Why don't you just call the company and ask? That way you get an official answer and don't have to rely on someone who could be mistaken.

I hope someone can answer this question for me because I can't find a single picture anywhere of the BACK of the device, the part that goes against the skin.

Is it made of metal? I have a severe nickel allergy, so I don't want to invest in a Body Media armband if it's going to give me a rash.

My Polar Fit chest band does not have any exposed nickel, so it works well for tracking calories burned during exercise, but I can't see wearing it all day long. emoticon Let alone sleeping in it!

Thank you to anyone who owns a Body Media armband who can give me the skinny on what it's made of.
