Are you looking for that added edge in your weight loss program? Track your activity and calorie burn like the contestants on The Biggest Loser.
The BodyMedia LINK Armband captures 5,000+ data points per minute, automatically tracking calories burned during your daily activities.
The BodyMedia FIT LINK Armband is the most accurate device in the market for measuring calorie burn*. No other consumer body monitoring device can capture calorie burn with greater than 90 percent accuracy, a fact that has been clinically validated when compared to the gold standard in calorie measurement**. The BodyMedia FIT Armband automatically and accurately gives you round the clock info on calories burned, steps taken, activity levels, and sleep quality. The LINK Armband, enabled with Bluetooth wireless technology, sends information directly to your smartphone providing real-time caloric burn, activity levels, steps taken and sleep quality.
*Data on file.
**British Journal of Sports Medicine, July 2010.
***Subscription required. The LINK Armband does not display information on its own, but rather works in conjunction with the online Activity Manager. Package includes a free 3-month trial period subscription.
When you wear a BodyMedia FIT Armband directly on your arm, it monitors calories burned, monitors exercise intensity, steps taken and sleep quality. Other devices clip to your shirt or belt loop so they can only record simple data (steps) from when you move. Why is that important? BodyMedia FIT Armbands recognize that jogging up 3 flights of stairs is not the same as walking down 3 flights of stairs. You're doing more work and burning more calories jogging up those stairs.
If you want to accurately monitor what's going on inside your body, you need a system that is in touch with you day and night. That's why BodyMedia FIT Armbands are worn directly on your arm. Its patented sensors detect skin temperature, sweat, the rate of heat leaving your body and motion. It knows what you're doing, when you're doing it and even the intensity of your effort.
Our Activity Manager allows you to upload data to our server via your smartphone or computer. The software analyzes the data and presents the information in an easy-to-understand format so that your progress can be tracked. The Activity Manager allows you to enter your body's metrics (height, weight, age, gender), log food, and guides you to your goals with a running report on the progress you've made--all while tracking their personal bests.
The Activity Manager also features FIT coach. The software analyzes the millions of data points gathered from your Armband and you are given individual feedback suggestions such as eating something different, adjusting activity levels or focusing on getting more sleep. All of the feedback you receive is based on your actual data.
The LINK Armband makes information immediately available by communicating directly with your mobile device. View larger.
The LINK Armband powered by Bluetooth wireless technology communicates directly with the BodyMedia FIT smartphone app to provide real-time, up-to-the minute streams of information. You can view your Dashboard and see real-time data to evaluate how they are tracking against daily goals. Using the app, you can also create customized workouts. The LINK Armband puts valuable health information at your fingertips for added motivation to stay on-track.
The LINK Armband now offers wireless upload. Wireless upload allows you to cut the cord with the computer by enabling the BodyMedia FIT app on your smartphone to upload all of the Armband data to our server. Upload from anywhere in the world with an internet connection--no computer needed. You'll like it so much, you might just forget to charge your Armband, so keep an eye on the battery indicator (most people charge it every 4-5 days).
Mobile devices tested to work with the LINK Armband and mobile apps include the iPad 3; iPad 2; iPad; iPhone (4S, 4 and 3GS); iPod touch (3rd and 4th generation); LG Ally; LG Optimus S; Motorola Droid (original, 2, and X); Samsung Epic; Samsung Intercept; Samsung Transform; and Sanyo ZIO.

I am writing this review hoping to help others from making the same mistake and having to return the unit.
I have the Android app on my Samsung Fascinate phone and it has worked great for Calories, tracking food and activity.
It has now been three months and I have not received any response to the 8 messages I have sent to customer service.
The initial setup was a little confusing. Once we tackled that hurdle it is working great. It takes longer to charge than described. But overall my wife is happy with it.Published 22 hours ago by MP FROM CP

My bad. Missed that this is a subscription. Very foolish marketing move given it doesn't do many more than the score of other activity trackers that cost around the same and then... Read morePublished 16 days ago by R. L. Brown
Many problems syncing this. I purchased a two year subscription assuming the unit would last at least that long but it did not. Only had the unit for a year. Read morePublished 19 days ago by Monica B Murphy
