Anyone seen/heard about this?

It's been out for awhile now (there is a newer model out - Version 2)

you basically wear it around your upper arm and through data you input and the sensors that stay in contact with your skin it determines how many calories you burn at rest and during certain activities.

Looks like a slightly more "advanced" biotrainer (http://www.biotrainerusa.com/) (which only uses accelerometers for detection, afaik).

If BIA hardly works to calculate body fat %, how is it going to work to do any of what it claims?

it has 4 sensors that stay in direct contact with your skin to measure temperature, sweat, etc.

it's actually been shown to be 92% accurate

there's a thread on Lyle's McDonalds board (bodyrecomposition.com) and he actually tested it and came to the conclusion that it was as accurate as it claimed

Just started using mine again and I'm addicted...again

def. a plus to have the watch that updates every minute to show you what you've burned

anyone else happen to get one?

I lol'd at the 92% accuracy.

How did they ever find that out.

not sure, but it is pretty damn accurate

there's a HUGE thread over on Lyle's board about it where people tested it out and found for themselves that it was pretty accurate.

don't you have to pay for a membership with 24hr fitness for the bodybugg to use it? that was how it was explained to me previously and thus the reason I did not buy one..
