SenseWear – Electronic Weight Watcher

The SenseWear from BodyMedia is an electronic gadget that you wear on your arm, that monitors your body’s main stats and gives you feedback on how you’re doing with your health and weight management.

In collaboration with the SenseWear website, users can track their nutrition and progress with up to date accurate information about their bodies – weight, metabolism, calories burned, sleep and more.

Key metrics tracked by SenseWear are Total Energy Expenditure (Calories burned); Active Energy Expenditure; Physical Activity Duration and Levels (METs); and Sleep Duration and Sleep Efficiency.

bodybugg Calorie Management System

Here’s another potential calorie management gadget that you can wear to monitor things like calories burned and even steps taken. The bodybugg is a small piece of electronics that you wear on your arm throughout the day. It has sensors that monitor your calories using metrics such as galvanic skin response, heat flow and skin temperature.

At the end of the day, you upload the info in your bodybugg to your PC or Mac via a USB cable. The small catch is that you have to subscribe to a Web-based application that crunches all the data and presents it to you in graphical and other formats. Fortunately, purchasing the bodybugg gives you 6 months for free.

The bodybugg reminds me of the Cosmed Fitmate and the SenseWear Weight Watcher. And while you’re at it, you should monitor the nutritional value of your food with an EatSmart Nutrition Scale.

Review: EatSmart Digital Nutrition Scale

If you are ready to start that long postponed diet program, and are serious about the nutritional values (or lack thereof) of what you consume, then the EatSmart digital nutrition scale is the way to go. This thorough review of the EatSmart scale will take you through what the scale can do under real-world conditions.

At a compact 9″ x 7″ and under 2″ high, this user-friendly scale delivers more than you would expect at first glance. It comes with a database of 999 of the most common foods and has the ability to calculate nutrients from thousands of packaged foods. The LCD display is divided into 8 sections, which affords you a lot of information at one glance. Although the nutrient values were easily readable, the one minor drawback was the very small size of the units (e.g. mg).
