Just shy of two years with mine (10 days ) The graphics are gone and have been replaced with white paint scuffs from....doorways. I have replaced the band. (had it shipped to Canada from the States) but it shows no signs of quitting any time soon. emoticon

My DH and I have each had ours going on 3 years now. We wear them around the clock (with the exception of showering). All the graphics are worn off the face of mine, but it's still going strong! Love it!

I've worn mine daily for about a year and a half now. I've had to replace the band once, but the device itself is going strong!

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

It's good to know that I'm not the only one who keeps on whacking into doorways. I keep thinking I've been wearing this thing long enough should I know to avoid hitting it.

Let the best of today be the worst of tomorrow.

I initially bought a V2 used on eBay for $60 - just to try out the Bugg program and see if it was worth any additional investement. After about 8 months, it started acting funny (randomly disconnecting, not staying connected with the Digi Display, randomly beeping/vibrating, generally acting possessed even with the battery out, etc) and I tried to reset it a few times but I couldn't revive it. Granted, I bought it used - so who knows how old it was or how long it had been used before I bought it. I had it long enough to figure out that it was a great tool - which was all I needed it for

Because I love the program so much, I picked up the V3 with the blue armband in July and its been going strong ever since. I have a nasty habit of running into doorways as well - so the front is a little scuffed. Never thought about picking up a skin for it - perhaps I might have to do that. When the armbands were on sale about 2 weeks ago - I picked up the pink one and the zebra one, so now I alternate out the armband with whatever one I feel like wearing that day

I've had mine a year and a half and ordered a bunch of skins and bands when I initially got it so no problems with extra bands.

That's a bummer! Is it not possible to order online and have it shipped, or would that make it cost prohibitive? Do you have a BodyBugg, or is it a BodyMedia GoWearFit? Apex is running a special half-off offer on the BodyBugg bands that I think is still going on--$6.50 US instead of $13 each.

I know I need a new band but I can't find them in Canada! I will have to take a road trip soon. In the meantime I have sewn a piece around the band.

Don't worry it's going to last a long time longer.

I have had mine for 1 1/2 years BUT I have a nasty habit of smacking it on door frames by walking too close, it's been dropped a few times, and more by my kids taking off with it (they love anything they can't have).

I just got a new one since I wanted the SP to be able to sync it with my phone.

My husband is now wearing my old one on a different account and I'm sure it will last him quite a while.

Let the best of today be the worst of tomorrow.

I've had mine over two years, I bought a new 'skin' with my name on it, and replaced the band. I have another new band in reserve!

I've had my BodyBugg almost 2 years now and it's still going strong, no signs of it having an issue at this point. I've replaced the strap once and have another waiting in the wings when this one wears out (it's showing signs of that). I haven't done anything special to protect the front; I haven't paid attention to scratches, but I suspect I have a few there myself.

I have had my bugg for over a year now and I can't imagine my life without it. My concern is that it will soon wear out.

How long have you had your bugg? Do I have more years left on mine?

Do you do anything to protect the front of yours? Mine is slightly scratched.

Thanks for taking the time to answer.
