Body Media FIT LINK Armband Review!

What is Body Media?

The BodyMedia FIT system gives you highly accurate information on calories burned – the most accurate in the market. Clinical study results show it can improve weight loss up to 3x!

BodyMedia FIT is an on-body monitoring system that consists of the BodyMedia FIT Armband monitor, online Activity Manager, an optional Display and free downloadable apps for mobile device users. BodyMedia FIT Armbands automatically track the calories burned during your daily activities, works as a fitness monitor to measure the intensity of your workouts and monitors the quality of your sleep, an important factor in weight loss. The information tracked can easily be managed with BodyMedia’s online Activity Manager. Just add in the easy-to-use food log and you have the right information to improve your weight loss.

I personally have struggled with weight loss since I have had my children, like most Moms. It is especially difficult for me because of being type 1 diabetic- as the extra weight can have a huge effect on keeping glucose levels in check. I think like most people, when I do diet and exercise I become frustrated when I don’t see results. That is where the Body Media FIT comes in.

Overall weight loss is so much more than just what you eat, just how active you are or just your quality and quantity of healthy sleep- it’s all of these aspects perfectly intertwined! The Body Media FIT helps you have a immensely better understanding of how your overall lifestyle effects your ability to lose weight.

Weight loss boils down to 3 key things:

Calories burned-

Everything you do during the day and night — from exercise to yard work to sleeping — burns calories. And the way you burn calories may be different from the next guy. BodyMedia FIT captures your calorie burn with an astonishing 95% accuracy.

Calories Consumed-

Knowing what you eat is an important part of losing weight, but most systems only count total calories. You need to understand the quality of your diet. Too many carbs? Not enough fiber? BodyMedia FIT will tell you that and more.

Sleep Quality & Quantity- 

Scientists understand and study the role of sleep in weight loss. Good sleep can help suppress your appetite and maintain your energy, which is critical to weight loss. BodyMedia FIT automatically captures your sleep efficiency.

The BodyMedia Fit arm Bands, by using a Galvanic Skin Response, Skin Temperature, Heat Flux, and the 3-axis Accelerometer among others, tracks different responses from your body to give you a 95% accurate read-out of your body’s activities. The main things that the BodyMedia ArmBands track are calories burned, steps walked, and sleep, but you also can input your calories to get the full picture of your activities. It is recommended that you wear the armband at least 23 hours per day.

You can then upload and view your activity to the Activity Manager online through the BodyMedia website or view your activity via smartphone when you download the Body Media app. This includes steps taken, time spent in moderate and vigorous activity, nutritional analysis and sleep efficiency, as well as any personal bests. There is a subscription charge of $6.95 per month for the Activity Manager.

I have been wearing my BodyMedia LINK Armband  for just over 2 weeks and overall, I am extremely happy with it. It provides me with accurate information that has really helped me understand more about my body during my journey. I feel this is the tool that will help push me to truly see where I can make improvement to finally become a better, healthier me!
