Fitbit vs Bodybugg vs Bodymedia vs Jawbone Up



Recommended Posts

Ok I did some reading, hard to find reviews on the flex, you would think when they unveiled it at the tech show they would have given some out to fitness mags to use and review.

But the main difference I'm seeing is the fitbit estimates your calories burn and you only get credit for movement.

Bodybugg has sensors that contact your skin to monitor the temp of your body along with other things so it's tracking your body function not just if you moving or still.

Example -I drive truck, with any type of pedometer device it counts steps when I am driving and sleeping because it registers the bouncing of my body so not accurate but even though my bug records steps the same way if I sit and pedal it also measures how warm my body gets as to the level of activity I'm burning.

Sorry this was long I like the look of the flex and the no fee just not sure if it would work for me have to wait for reviews for you guys lol!

Now is the flea the one that's available now or is that the one that's coming out?

The flex comes out on May 1st thru Amazon. You can pre order it now if you'd like tho

I have a polar watch since I take Zumba and want to know my calories burned during my work outs. The Fitbit only really measures steps and sleep. Does the bodybugg measure calories burned on all exercises or just steps?

It measures on all activity not just steps

Cool. Then maybe I'll get one. Although I am pretty much covered on the calories front. I don't really care about steps too much.

Ya because of my job and lifestyle I don't get much if any exercise in a day heck some days I do less than a 1000 steps so I needed something that focuses more on what my body is burning in a day ...since everyone is different I didn't want something that just followed a formula.

On the days I work I burn about 2200 calories in 24 hours...the days I'm home I burn 3000 or more just doing everyday life things not exercise....the other trackers don't work that way

I know! How frustrating! Although honestly the FitBit One looks alright too, easier to hide on your body, then having to wear a Bracelet all the time. But I think I'll wait until the Flex comes out anyway..

I have a Polar FT4, and I love it. I only wear it when I workout though. It seems to be very accurate.

Interestingly, Jawbone just bought BodyMedia today. I wonder what that will end up meaning for their respective devices?

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

      @DaisyChainOz, @Arabesque ... am totally thinking of both of you this very moment as I watch the final set of the Millman-Federer match at the AO... I am riveted and literally screaming at the TV...

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
