I have a Bodybugg. I agree with some of the others that it does a better job with some activities than others. Running & walking are great- biking not so great. I usually wear a heart rate monitor & my Bodybugg while riding and try to focus on keeping my heart rate up. There is usually about a 100-200 calorie difference. I love my bugg. It has given me motiviation to keep moving & I've lost weight. I'd recommend it hands down.

I use a personal coaching system made by mytrak called the M2 which I think is better than the bodybugg mainly because it has a waterproof pouch for swimming and it is less conspicuous than the bodybugg. I like to preset it for the calories I want to burn each day. The price is good and the tech support I find very good. www.fitonthego.com use vip pricing code C6W1K One thing I've noticed with these type of devices is that unless you wear a heart rate monitor the cycling is a hard one to get accurate results. good luck! emoticon

Are these the same things they use on "The Biggest Loser"?

I will have to try it on my calf and see how that does. I usually take it off when I cycle and enter the off-body time.

I move it to my calf when I cycle and feel it does a pretty accurate job of reflecting my calorie burn. I campair that number to to other calorie calculators and they all come out about the same or at least with 50 calories of each other.

from Terri
I use the Body Media Fit device, previously called the GoWear Fit. It is the same thing as the Body Bugg and made by the same company. These devices do a better job showing the calorie burn of some activities over others. For instance, running and walking they do a great job with. They don't do as good a job with cycling. However, you can get better results by moving the unit to your calf while you cycle. That's what I do. Roller blading, however, there is no fix for. You can take off the unit and edit the time you have it off body. I hope this helps. Let me say that in spite of its shortcomings I think these armbands are fantastic for providing motivation to move more and I lost over 25 pounds in less than a year with mine, and I am at goal now. I lost some before I got the GWF.

I'm just wondering if anyone uses a bodybugg while cycling and if so, how is it working? Before I invest in a bodybugg I would like to hear some feed back.
Thanks
