I just bought a Bodymedia Fit Core today. I haven't had a chance to try it our yet, but I got my account all set up and am charging the unit at the moment. I got a great deal on it as it was on clearance at Target. I got the computer confirmed last one in stock (I know, I asked if there was another so I could buy one for my husband). The out-the-door price: $55. I only wish I had found them on clearance sooner so my husband can have one too.
I am hoping this devise will help me break my plateau and keep on track.

So far the estimates here and other places fall in the ballpark, but the Bodymedia FIT is more precise. Its good that they support each other in terms of the general range.
For me the feedback I get from the Bodymedia and the fact I log my food is really effective in making me watch my burn and consumption. Also, it helped me realize that I wasn't getting enough protein, and I have ramped that up. That makes a difference at least for me.
Hi. I just purchased the body media fit and am just learning about how to use it. I'm excited to see exactly how much I'm burning as compared to the cookie cutter estimates here on spark people(not that they're not decently accurate) I am confused about one thing, I know that you are supposed to wear it for most of the day but for the hour they suggest not wearing it when is the best time to do that?

Welcome to the team! These are great tools to help you reach your goals and help you understand what your body is doing as far as calorie burn is concerned. I hope you find yours to be as much help as mine has been to me!

Hi. I just got my Bodymedia fit this Friday, and despite some initial issues (It was stuck with amber battery light on for a while), it is now working great. I have lost 28 lbs so far and not that I have added the Bodymedia FIT I expect that closely tracking my calorie consumption and Calories expended in the Application Manager I expect to ramp up my progress.
I would welcome and advice any of you may offer and look forward to meeting you.
