Bodybugg: How Many Calories Burned Per Day

Armen Hareyan's picture

With the rise of obesity in USA BodyBugg helps to keep track of the number of calories one can burn day by day, minute by minute.

Many people lose weight by exercising and running. In other words, one may call this type of weight loss a traditional one or old way. However, a new device called BodyBugg helps to count calories in a new way. BodyBugg is tied to your arm and helps to measure skin temperature, air temperature, motion and perspiration.

The Bodybugg is 100% personalized, including your weight loss goals. The information is uploaded to your computer and with a push of a button on your BodyBugg you can see your progress any time a day. Your Bug is uploaded to your online profile and you can see minute by minute profile weight lossand calorie burning progress.

While I have not seen many people wearing BoddyBugg, it seems really interesting, but expensive.

However, the whole thing with the BodyBugg is a little confusing to me. The device is made by Sensewear www.sensewear.com, promoted as Apex www.apexfitness.com and pushed by 24HourFitness www.24hourfitness.com.

The price of the BodyBugg can be anywhere between $250 and $350 dollars. It depnds on the program one may choose to buy. What makes BodyBugg expensive is the fact that the device and the program are subscription based program. You need to have internet access and your subscription must be current.

Bodybugg Program with Armband & Digital Display is $399.90. Web-Only bodybugg Program, which comes without the armband is $149.95 dollars. It includes an online food logging with custom meal plans, an estimated energy expenditure data based on your lifestyle, a 3-month subscription to the web-based program and 1 phone session with a bodybugg coach.

The full BodyBugg program as you can see can cost up to $400 dollars and it only includes 3 months of subscription and the device.

Bodybugg Program with Armband & Digital Display is $399.90, which also comes with an online food logging with custom meal plans and a 3-month subscription to the web-based program. This BodyBugg program icludes 1 phone session with a bodybugg coach.

Bodybugg idea seems simple and cool, but it's hard to understand what justifies the high cost in this day and age of a small device. I can see another company coming out with a similar idea of counting your calories and making it less expensive and not necessarily with subscription.

One must be able to download BodyBugg data to his or her desktop and see the number of calories burned on a desktop based program.
