BodyMedia Fit Link Product Description

he BodyMedia Fit Link Armband is a more accurate accelerometer with a food log and nutritional guide built in.  The BodyMedia Fit Link also allows you to view your stats on your smartphone in close to real-time (Andriod / Iphones both supported).  You don’t necessarily have to use your smartphonet to view your stats, but its clearly what the device was deisnged for.

Pro’s

  • Ease of use
  • Nutritional breakdowns
  • Convenience (strapped to your arm, how can you not use it?)
  • Tracks activity and calories burned
  • Tracks your sleep quality and quantity
  • Battery life

Con’s

  • Best when used with smartphone
  • Online activity manager requires $6.95 per month after 3 month free trial
  • Not water proof
  • Reports of inaccuracy

Most people are not going to go back at the end of a day, tally up everything they ate, reflect on it, and submit it into the food log.  Immediate nutritional information is what BodyMedia is going for here; it might actually help you make a food decision.

The BodyMedia Fit Link is easy to use and is more or less, plug and play.  To do some of the extras, you’ll have to download the app on your smartphone, but thats minimal work.  Its also easy to use, because if you’re willing to wear the BodyMedia armband all day, then how can you not take a few seconds to update your food log and look at your calories burned stats?

There are a few other pro’s to the Body Media Fit Link, like the fact that the armband was designed to be worn 23 hours a day and charged for 1 hour.  To think you’ll only have to charge the thing for less than 7 hours a week.  An added bonus is that it will track your sleep quantity and quality.

Who should purchase the BodyMedia Fit Link Armband?  

People that like to track their nutritional stats as well as activity.  If you already wear a pedometer or accelerometer, then you should give the Fit Link Armband a try.  If you’re looking to help keep yourself more accountable to your fitness goals and you don’t mind wear this on your arm, then it would be a good product for you.  One thing to mention, is that it is not water proof.  So don’t plan on tracking your swimming activity.
