The System
The GoWear fit system is different from all other performance monitors on the market. It's not a heart-rate monitor, a GPS device, or a simple pedometer. Instead, it's a system that includes:
  • GoWear fit multi-sensor armband
  • GoWear fit Online Activity Manager (subscription based)
  • GoWear fit minute-to-minute display (optional)

Multi-Sensor Armband
Your armband is a small computer that measures a variety of physical characteristics, including motion, steps, galvanic skin response, skin temperature, and heat flux. It's the only multi-sensor monitor that can accurately track:
  • Calorie burn
  • Physical activity
  • Steps taken
  • Sleep duration
  • Sleep efficiency
 
Your GoWear fit has multiple sensors. Those innovative sensors take five different "views" of your life:

GoWear fit Online Activity Manager
Your Online Activity Manager is a personalized Web page that helps you see the information collected by your armband, including:
  • Daily caloric expenditure
  • Daily caloric intake based on a nutritional tool with more than 30,000 foods to choose from
  • Calorie balance
  • Total physical activity (sedentary, moderate, and vigorous)
  • Total steps taken
  • Sleep duration and efficiency

The Manager is what makes it possible for you to view your data. It also features tools that allow you to set goals, record your weight and waist circumference, assess your average daily caloric intake, print reports for later review, and monitor your body's progress over time.

Your monthly subscription gives you unlimited access to your data, the nutritional assessment tool, printable reports, and the ability to see your trends up to 90 days at a time.

I have owned the Gowear Fit for about 4 week now and so far glad to say I still don't have any buyers remorse.

My interest in this first started when I saw the Bodybugg on the current season of NBC's the Biggest Loser and so started to research it. When I searched for it on Amazon I got this products page.

I actually read through the info page and some of the reviews without noticing that this wasn't the BodyBugg, until a review mentioned the GoWear Fit vs. the BodyBugg . I then started researching the GoWear Fit, and came to find out that the BodyBugg and GoWear Fit were manufactured by BodyMedia.

Here is a nice table that compares them all dubya dubya dubya dot bodymedia dot com forward slash prodtbl.html

What I got from my research is that both pretty much use the same technology by and large as far as hardware goes. The main differences are in the software that you use to access the info gathered by whichever calorie counter you choose to use. When I looked at pictures of both of them, they looked EXACTLY the same. The only difference was the color scheme.

The biggest "issue" with the GoWear Fit that users seemed to gripe about was the calorie logging. With the GoWear Fit you filled a 3 day profile for meals that the software would use to calculate the average amount of calories that you consume everyday while BodyBugg had the capability of logging in each individual meal everyday so you had much more accurate calorie tracking.

This is not a problem anymore though. The software now allows you to enter each meal individually.

This is going to be a lengthy review, so if you are looking for the Reader's Digest version, here it is: If you are in any way contemplating this purchase, stop reading and buy it.

Now, on to the review...

I have owned this device for a week. I am a 37 year old male with approximately 25 lbs to lose. I have a sedentary job and joined a gym 6 weeks ago. I have had a back injury for 7 months and am slowly geting back into the groove.

When I first received it, the unit was not charged, so I had to be patient and wait the 3 hrs it takes to fully charge it. As others have stated, it is not at all cumbersome or uncomfortable. In fact, I often forget that I am wearing it. After it was charged, I had difficulty getting my computer to recognize it. I later learned, through the assistance of Customer Service, that the problem was due to a Java update. They assisted me in getting past this, and that has been the only hiccup so far.

The device is, quite simply, amazing. For starters, anyone doubting the sleep tracker will be in for a huge surprise. It is incredibly accurate. I conciously paid attention to when I went to bed and looked up at the clock a few moments before I fell asleep. In the morning when I uploaded the numbers, it showed me the same exact times and results.

As far as nutrition tracking and calorie consumption, it would have been nice for everything to be included, but, as another reviewer stated, it is easy enough to track your nutrition using a free program like the one at sparkpeople (search for that word if you don't know what it is).

First, I will note that the new bodybugg does monitor your sleep since someone said it doesn't.

Because I own both, I will say with confidence...these ARE the exact same. I lost my bodybugg and thought I left it in a hotel, bought this one, and it's the same as my bodybugg which, I found in the pocket of my suitcase when I travelled again!

(That said, the old bodybugg, the grey one, version 1 and 2, did not measure sleep.)

Why the name difference since it's the same thing made by the same company? 24 hour fitness bought the rights to the bodybugg. So the company has this one not under that name.

So, I can tell you all about it knowing they are both alike and having already reviewed the bodybugg

(BUT that said, be sure to check the 24 hour fitness website before you buy this because they often have the bodybugg on sale. It varies and sometimes this one is cheaper and sometimes you get a free display device on that one...changes every month as to which one is cheaper from what I've seen...)

I couldn't find an in-depth review on the bodybugg/gowearfit that answered ALL my questions before I bought mine, so I surfed the net for a week til I got them all answered. Therefore, I'll try to answer most of them I had, for you, here...things I hate. Things I love. How it works.

Am I not losing weight because I'm working out too much and not eating enough?

Is my metabolism just slower than other people's or is it so high I need to eat more to maintain energy to lose weight?

Am I working out enough to burn enough calories to lose weight?

How many calories do I REALLY need?
