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.

Hit my goal weight 9/16/11 and aim to remain there for good!

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!

Hi all!! I've had my bodymedia link since the 2nd of the month and am loving all the info from it!!

But do have a quick question on where everyone is wearing theirs?

The instructions say on the back of the arm but the pictures on the site show it more on the side and towards the back then actually on the triceps.

I didn't give it too much thought until my workout today. I did a 20 minutes circuit and it was a hard enough workout my face was beat red but yet it only showed 4 minutes of vigorous activity?!

I am very obese and have learned that just walking up my stairs shows as moderate activity. Most of my workouts have kept it in the moderate range but this one just seemed so much harder.

Any ideas/suggestions are welcome! Thank you in advance!! :)
