I was just telling my hubby about that and he said wow why didn't we think of that! Haha cause he was helping me try to figure this all out the other night. Again thanks!

Some people prefer the tracking there, but I really like the way it is set up here better. The generic food entry on the Bodybugg site has been a great solution for me, too. That was one of the first things I learned from this team and have been so glad for the idea!

Agreed - it was such a pain!! Making the "generic" food entry definitely helped a lot!

When I got mine, I hated the tracking there as well. Instead of fighting with it, I just created a "general" food (100 calories) and still used Spark to track since I liked it better. Then at the end of the day, if Spark said I ate 1550 calories, I'd input 15.5 servings of my "general" food and be able to see a breakdown of what I did. It worked out really well

ok So it seems to be working now, I do not like how they load their food options. I wish it were like sparks! I got the Bodybuggsp.

This can vary sometimes - which version are you using? Did you get the digital display? Did you fully charge it and ensure you heard the tones when you put it on (so you know its connected right). I found that the first day I wore it, the burns were a little off since it was going on the "formula" instead of my actual movement.

Which version did you get, and where are you seeing that it didn't record anything? If it is on and recording correctly, you should see at least 1-2 calories per minute burn even if you aren't doing anything.
