Serious Science, Serious Results
There are tons of fly-by-night weight-loss fads out there. The BodyMedia FIT system is not one of them. Scientific studies over the last 10 years have proven that BodyMedia technology is accurate and that it delivers the results you're looking for. Weight loss attempts fail not because you lack willpower, but because you lack the right information. To lose weight effectively, you should know calories in, calories out, and sleep quality.

One Size Doesn't Fit All
You burn calories differently than anyone else, which is why cookie-cutter weight loss programs may not be working for you. The BodyMedia FIT weight management system captures 5,000+ readings every minute to capture your individual metabolic profile. This personalized information helps you pinpoint what actions you need to take to reach your weight-loss goals.

Weight loss boils down to three key things:

  • Calories Burned - Everything you do during the day and night -- from pumping iron to pumping gas -- burns calories. And the way you burn calories may be different from the next guy.

  • Calories Consumed - Knowing what you eat is an important part of losing weight. Too many carbs? Not enough fiber? BodyMedia FIT will give you a detailed nutritional breakdown.

  • Quantity and Quality of Sleep - Scientists understand and study the role of sleep in weight loss. Good sleep can help suppress your appetite and maintain your energy, which is important to weight loss.

Interesting and motivating to track your activity, exertion level, calories burned and sleep.

That is probably the best part of the product, the education you get on just how bad restaurant food is for you.

The main reason I bought this was to track how well I was sleeping, second for weight loss assistance. I am a Weight Watchers member, I did not buy this to replace my membership. I bought a package from Bodymedia directly, it contained a separate display device called GoWear. I was hesitant to put out a large amount of money up front, especially with a subscription to the web site. But I have learned so much, I'm glad I bought a one year subscription, it is cheaper on a per month breakdown of the cost. I have not had a problem with software or hardware from this company.
Some basic info: The Dashboard gives you a basic review of your progress using a bar graph. There are shaded areas that guide you to the goals the program has set for you based on your personal information. It asks you to report a daily weight reading and reflects losses with this info. The medium size armband that came with it was too snug (I'm a size 18 to 20), I had already bought a large size with the package. The large arm band kept sliding down for 2 days until I found the right spot and adjustment that worked. I do not wave my arms around for aerobic exercise. GoWear display is not updated second by second with the armband. Nutrition information is only as accurate as you log it. With nutrition logging, you can enter a recipe, create a food that is displayed under My Foods. It keeps a list of frequent foods you have logged. GoWear display is a separate purchase from the armband.

PROS: Armband can be programed to beep the GoWear display with preset options such as time to drink, exercise, etc. Tracks 'personal bests', which is motivational. Can track waist circumference measurement (optional). Assembled in Canada, not China. Armband is latex free. Easy to remove food from the nutrition log.

I purchased one through Jenny Craig. At first was excited about the product and wore it for several days and synced the data regularly. What I noticed though was the activity portion was way off in accuracy.
For example from the uploaded data: When I woke and had breakfast, got dressed it logged that I was doing vigorous exercise. Later in the day I ran a mile and it logged it as moderate exercise, no vigourous activity. I verified the location of the sensor on my left arm and it was in place in the exact location recommended.
I had similar experiences the next day. Morning time which is quit for me had huge spikes in activity, but later on the stationary bike it showed only modest activity, even though I was churning out sweat and had a heart rate of around 140bpm for 45 minutes.

Driving in the car also was listed as vigorous activity. I'm wondering if because it uses a 3 point accelerometer that the motion of the car was setting it off. This might also account for the stationary bike reading being so low, since you are not moving and neither are your arms.

It seems like a promising start, but since the activity data is off, probably the calories are also. I just don't trust any of the readings from it at this point. I might work better for people whose primary activity is walking and running.

I have been using this device for about two weeks now, along with the online Activity Manager, to keep track of calories consumed and burned. With respect to the device's monitoring functions, it really is quite amazing. It appears to be at least as accurate as any other device or system for counting the calories I burn, and it is consistent with my expectations for energy expenditure during various activities. I should add that those expectations are based upon a fair amount of research. I am also amazed at how accurately it is able to tell when I am exercising, walking around or sleeping. If I fall asleep in my recliner for half an hour, that fact is clearly reflected in the data and Activity Manager displays when the unit is synced with Activity Manager.

After a couple of days of getting used to it, the unit is unobtrusive when worn on the left arm. For the most part, I don't even know it is there. I have no trouble sleeping with it or wearing it while working out. I have had no problem with syncing it with activity manager, although it is a bit less reliable when used with the application on my Android based smartphone. While very lightweight, the unit itself seems sturdy enough and I do not anticipate any problems in that area.

In short, if the evaluation was simply of the unit itself and the online activity manager, it would be a four to five star item. The problem is that the unit itself is only part of a package. The food database in Activity Manager is terrible. I have had to input the data for most of what I have eaten since I started using this device. I rarely had this problem when using the online sites "fatsecret" or "myfitnesspal.

I was a bit skeptical about this device's ability to accurately measure my caloric output per day, but after receiving it and trying it for almost 6 weeks, I'm astounded, frankly. I have tracked my food intake carefully using the web site, and have worn the device faithfully over that time.

The bottom line is over the course of a few weeks, Bodymedia reported I'd burned 40,250 calories (that is, calories out minus calories in). In theory, at 3,500 calories per pound, I should have lost 11.5 pounds at that point. Incredibly, according to the scale, I'd lost 11.8 pounds. And that wasn't just a one-time thing. Over time, if I graph my weight versus what it "should" be based on the reported calorie deficit reported by Bodymedia, my actual weight remains within 1 pound of the weight predicted simply by using the calories Bodymedia says I burned.

For the first time ever (and I've dieted and lost weight several times over the years) I feel like I have complete control of the process. By simply maintaining a 1,000 calorie deficit, per day, according to the Bodymedia web site, I lose about 2 pounds a week, like clockwork. I weigh daily, and sure, due to water intake variations and such my day-to-day results can move around, but if I average it week-to-week, the result is a smooth, predictable weight loss, easier than anything I've done before.

While I pay attention to what I eat for health reasons, I no longer worry about the "neolithic" diet, or the "zone" diet, or the "South Beach" diet, or any of that stuff... this device breaks it down into two numbers: calories in, and calories out. And the difference equals predictable weight loss, regardless of what you eat to take in calories, or what you do to burn them up. It's fantastically easy and straightforward.
