Bodymedia vs SPAT

Tuesday, November 26, 2013      9 comments

I've been using my Bodymedia armband for over two years. I bought the Spark Activity Tracker when it came out because I wanted to compare it to the Bodymedia armband. Bodymedia requires a paid subscription to work and also the device causes a ra... Read more
