I agree. I wear mine to it's mid-to all the way back on my left upper arm. After a year and a half I'm finding that the exact placement doesn't really matter, as long as it's generally in the right place. Wearing it on my cal or tucking it in my bra, however, do give me quite different results for my regular day to day activity.

Glad you are liking it so far! As long as you have the device toward the back of the arm, it should pick up everything fine; you might try playing with the placement to see where it seems to pick up your activity best, though. I find that my bodybugg doesn't pick up activity like the exercise bike as well as it does running or walking, which involve the arms more. If your workout had a lot of leg movement but not a lot of arm movement, that might explain why so little showed as vigorous, too. Hope that helps some!
