An armband that you pay a subscription for. It hooks up to the internet every night and you get information about how many calories you burned, how much you walked, ran, etc. You can input swimming or exercise and food that weren't directly put in. It is good for someone to get started, but $$
It was pricey. It works as well as anything-that is you have to actually DO it, wear it. Spark People does the same thing without the technology and it's free. I used it for about 6 months, didn't lose a lot of weight. Now I am eating healthy and exercising without spending money.

i use a bodybugg so i keep a pretty detailed food journal that includes the weight of just about everything i eat. i track using a book - something i can take with me everywhere. it's actually stopped me from eating something unhealthy - i didn't want to have to put it in my journal! to me, that's the beauty of food logging - it keeps you honest! i do the same thing with my workouts using my bodybugg & heart rate monitor.
I got a BodyBugg for Christmas. It has taken me a while to get the hang of it, but BOY OH BOY does it motivate me to exercise. At the end of the day I can see my deficit (calories in versus calories out). I'm tracking weight loss. It works!
No Pedometer - There's an App for That: Cardio Tracker
I had my Omron pedometer stolen (sniffle) so I was on the fence about buying a new one or a BodyBugg and then I searched on my Droid Cell Phone Market and found "CARDIO TRACKER". This App uses GPS to track your route whether your walking/running & tracks miles, time, calories burned, & it's FREE!!!
