I'm going on three years wearing my BodyMedia monitor. I have not had any problems with it at all. It was a great investment for me. I was so, happy when Sparkpeople became on of their 3rd party site, and I was able to link my nutrition to BodyMedia. It made that process so easy. I love all the data that you receive from monitor.

Progress may be slow, but it happens!
No such thing as last place only finishers.

I had a Bodymedia device and the first one cracked I guess because I sleep on my left side. Te second one I got was smaller and it would slide off my arm and not track all of my activity and I suspect that it was not tracking my sleep properly. So I switched to a Spark Tracker. emoticon

I have BodyMedia and I love it! I personally haven't had any skin reactions but also try to keep it clean. It is quite easy to sync, too. There's a way to do it within their website. And As for sending things I track in SP, like food, I just click a button on the nutrition tracker "Send to BodyMedia".

It does feed activitity minutes to SP but I delete it because I track only intended exercise, not just activity.

There is a fee after the initial trial (3 months, if memory serves). You can pay monthly or annually. I currently pay $6.95 a month but the information I receive is worth it.

I remember reading a few people had problems with a skin reaction to the metal part on the arm band. And I thought the bodymedia has a monthly fee. But not completely sure on that.

I am HOPING to get the fit bit force for my birthday. I know that does sync with SP, tracks calories, steps, how well you sleep. It's a bracelet style.

Sorry I can't help you more.

I was looking at the Biggest Loser website this morning and found that the monitor they use is BodyMedia. I have done some research and found that it is pretty well liked and I am into the gadgets thing, honestly. Money has also became not a problem anymore. I noticed at the bottom of the page for the bands that SP is listed. Anybody used this? Is it easy to sync with SP?

Challenges for the rest of 2014 (from 9/1):

ST 90min/week
10% body weight lost by 1/1/15

Exercise at least 10min/day for 100 days this year

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.
