Hi, I just joined this group as I am also a WW member and use the Active Link. I actually purchased it about 6 months ago, but didn't really use it until recently. I like the accountability it provides and the fact that I can check periodically throughout the day to see how I'm doing with my activity. It's a good motivator. I work at a desk all day, but I am now getting up and moving more, taking the long way to get somewhere, etc. I think it's well worth the additional $5 per month.
I really like the Active Link! It is kind of a reminder to me to be more active. I have been trying to be more active and ramp up my activity points by just doing more walking and moving around at work.
I have the Activelink. I've had it for almost 3 months. I guess the one thing I like best about it are the lights that tell you where you are during the day so you know if you've been active or not. Some days I feel like I've done a lot and the activelink says otherwise, then there are days when I'm doing things like sewing and gardening and I get all my active link points. It is interesting to see what is active!
The other thing it does well is keep your activity honest, translating it into points. I am in a debate with myself if I should give up WW but I'm going to do SP and WW together for a while to see what is best.
Does anyone here use the Active Link? I am trying to decide if I want to buy one or not. I love the idea of it converting your activity to points and that it is waterproof, but I'm not sure if it is worth the $5 a month on top of my monthly pass.
