Bodybugg 24 Hour Fitness

bodybugg armband thumb Bodybugg 24 Hour Fitness

If you digg the NBC reality series, “The Biggest Loser,” I am quite sure you would have by now noticed that participants wear a popular gadget called a bodybugg on the back of their right arm.

What is a bodybugg

The bodybugg is a biometric calorie management system available through 24 Hour Fitness, which uses four sensors to convert measurements of galvanic skin response, physical activity, and body temperature into a real-time measurement of calories burned throughout the day. Users wear the compact armband, which easily fits under clothing, over the triceps on their upper left arm – allowing you to take it everywhere you go.

According to the information available from the Bodybugg website, “No matter what activity a user is doing – washing dishes, playing with the kids or working out – the bodybugg calculates the amount of energy expended in each motion. Users then download their captured bodybugg data to a Web interface that tracks caloric measurements and helps them monitor their food intake and activity levels as they seek to achieve their fitness goals”.

Do you wear this device or know somebody who wears this device? What do you think about it?

      I used the body bug faithfully for 3 months and was totally dissappointed. I felt as though it misrepresented the calories I burned, thereby giving me a false number of calories expended. I had only 5-10 pounds to lose but it is very difficult for me to shed weight. My body seems to only lose best when I consume minimal lean protien and minimal healthy carbs and loads of Vegies. The Body Bug calculated more calories burned by when I played light tennis thank when I did 1 1/2 hours of instence cardio and weights at the gym where my heart rate was between 130-150 the whole time. The calories bured for tennis were extremely high and the gym workout was the same as if I was walking aroud the house. By the way my heart rate while playing tennis was truly more like walking aroud the house. I am a beginner. The heart rate was done by me not the body bug. The BB was so escue that I had the guy that marketed them for 24 (his offices were located at my 24 gym location) make sure that I was using it properly and he determined that I was. The arm swing motion clearly through it’s calc’s off. Bottom line is it’s gimmicky and a waist of money. Three months and not a inch and I was very honest about food consumption, I recorded on their website evrything that went in.

        Hi, since you are the only one that seems to have tried one..I’m wondering – can you upload your information on the go? I think you can on the iPhone but is it Blackberry compatible or do you have to write it all down and enter it when you get to a computer?

      Good to know Sherri. I’ve been looking into doing this however the cost is what is keeping me from purchasing it so far. I was really wondering if it would work correctly or not. It almost sounds too good to be true.

      You shouldn’t be posting as god.. There is one and ONLY one GOD and that God does not judge people.

      • Honest-T says:

        Meaghan, By saying that it’s wrong to post as God, aren’t you making a judgment on that person’s actions? You might have missed that part, but basically you were saying that it’s morally wrong to say that something is morally wrong. Think twice next time. ;)

    7. Follower says:

      Oh… but read closely–God DOES judge. Just ask Sodom.

      is this about grammer or the product? was hoping to see some feedback on the product not all this garbage. guess i’ll keep looking.

      What if it wasn’t the calorie bugs fault that you didn’t loose the last 5-10 pounds. People underestimate the amount of calories by misreading the servings of salad dressings all the time. Although veggies are healthy, you still need to watch how much butter and sauce you put with them. The last 5-10 pounds are very hard to get rid of. Try changing your exercise routine from tennis to running or swimming. Have you tried the “Eat right for your blood type” book in addition to using the body bug. That might point you in the direction of the food you should be eating. I know its hard but every time I visit my parents I loose weight from being more active and eating non processed food. Good luck.

    10. beachjc says:

      Dang, I wanted some info to. And I found a web war. LOL was funny reading…kind of. Hmmmm I think I might try the bodybug and the eat right for your type. thanks to the people who gave feedback on the product.

    11. monty says:

      I know a couple people at our gym that use them, and they love them. Both have had great success with them. I would highly recommend getting one if you are serious about losing weight. I’m purchasing one as we speak. :-)

    12. InfoWanted says:

      I was also hoping for more reviews. Will look elsewhere. The recommendation on the “Blood Type” diet…what a joke. There’s no scientific evidence to support that and, further, the entire premise is based on the complete GUESS on what blood type came first. Do people lose weight on it? Sure, because they eat better than before (and likely exercise)…but, come on, where is the scientific evidence that supports the blood type diet? Maybe someone should make an “eye color” diet.

      • Just Lookin says:

        I came looking for more information such as price for this apparatus, however, a word war coupled with a philosphy war was in progress. I am looking for more information on the Bodybugg because my girlfriend and her husband just picked up the Bodybugg through Costco. Her husband has lost 20 pounds and she has lost 28 and is sold on the product. It could be due to a change in diet or activity level or both. Either way, being aware of your activity level (or lack thereof) is good to know and provides incentive to increase it. Eating fresh healthy foods is always a good option, get rid of the junk (easily said, not so easily implemented). Its nearly summer and a great time to enjoy all the fruits and veggies this season has to offer.

      where do you get this from?

    14. Janet says:

      I received a bodybugg for Christmas and I haven’t spent even a day without wearing it. If you wear it, HONESTLY log your food intake, and use the simple idea of eating fewer calories than the bugg says you are burning, you WILL lose weight. I joined a gym and only managed to lose 6 pounds in 18 months. I believed the 450 to 500 calories the eliptical said I was burning. In truth, I was buring about 150 calories in my 30 minutes on the machine. The weight just seemed to fall off my body as long as every day, my calories consumed was less than my calories burned. The advantage of using the bodybugg is that you become aware of how many calories you are burning. Previously, I had tried loggin my food at with the “my plate” feature along with logging my activities. That worked in a limited way, but I still didn’t know how many calories I was REALLY burning. The beauty of the bodybugg is that it isn’t a diet. You eat (hopefully healthy food, but if you don’t it just means you see your “caloires consumed” bar graph surpass your “calories burned” bar graph), you download the bugg data and you log your food. It really is just creating an awareness of your own body’s metabolism and burn along with an increased awareness of how many calories are in the food you eat. I love my bodybugg and plan to wear it as long as it keeps functioning! I am now a size 2 and weigh 119 pounds. I am in the best shape of my life and just turned 50 years old on Saturday! As far as downloading to a phone, the site advertises that it works with iphone and droid. I have a droid but have not yet figured out how to use this feature. If you have weight to lose, are honest about logging you calories (this is the toughest part as we tend to underestimate what we eat!), and are willing to invest the time to log food and get some exercise, you WILL lose weight. I highly recommend the bodybugg.

      Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
