I thought I would put my input for the bodybugg as some are wondering about it, I have had it for a week now and here is my take on it, along with the Polar F6 (which I have no issues with)
This I have found is only good if you want to actually find out how many calories you burn sitting or doing everyday stuff. The issue I have with this is when I wear the Bodybugg and the HRM (yes you can wear both without interference) the calories burned is totally different from each one. The HRM states I burn more than the Bodybugg.
The website that comes with the Bodybugg is useful in helping you stay within the calories you need to take in and burn off.
As for the arm straps it comes with 2 different sizes one medium and one large. I do not find it bulky or anything as the previous posts states.
This HRM is great; there is a feature that uses your own best low and high heart rate for you!
The only problem I have with this thing is that I can not get it to communicate with the program you can download with the site. I also have issues when I stop exercising and I stop the clock I keep forgetting to turn it back on. If you donít stop it when you stop exercising and you have the alarm set it will keep beeping at you (yes you can turn the alarm off) but I want the calories burned to be just from exercising not from stopping and changing what workout I am going to be doing.
As for the chest strap, its not uncomfortable or anything, but I donít think it will fit a really big person. I donít think you need a sports bra to wear it, a regular bra will work (donít recommend working out with a regular bra though).
any questions about any of them, you can send me mail and I will answer best I can. I don't have a favorite with these. I only got the Bodybugg because I was excersing 6 days a week between 30 - 60 minutes a day and keeping my caloires down and wasn't losing weight. Come to find out my metabolizim is really low, I only burn 1 calorie a minute sleeping and 1.2 awake, which is NOT a lot so I have to exercise a lot more for now. This is where the bodybugg came in handy.
