BodyMedia Wireless Armband BW Helps You Manage Your Waistline
January 7th, 2011
BodyMedia unveiled their latest FIT Armband BW that will connect to your devices using Bluetooth. This means that it will connect to iOS devices, as well as cell phones, etc.
It will collect information about how many calories are burned, steps are taken, and real time physical activity. The software will also keep a log of food consumed throughout the day.
This is a pretty interesting sensor. It uses galvanic skin response and other factors to calculate calorie burn. The Activity Manager means that you log onto the website and input data about your daily food input, etc. For a moment, I thought that the device sensed what food you were eating.
The BodyMedia FIT Armband BW will cost $249 (USD). The Activity Manager costs an extra $13 per year (less with a quarterly or annual commitment).
