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.
BodyMedia CORE Armband
The BodyMedia CORE 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, activity levels, steps taken and sleep quality. The CORE Armband displays your data on your computer after connecting it with a USB cord and can also be used in conjunction with the BodyMedia FIT Display device.
BodyMedia's technology is also featured on The Biggest Loser in Season 14, which features one of America's toughest trainer, Jillian Michaels. All contestants are wearing BodyMedia FIT Armbands to provide them with detailed and accurate information to help achieve their weight loss goals.

Accuracy is on the Arm
When you wear a BodyMedia FIT Armband directly on your arm, it monitors calories burned, 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.
