I have device envy. It’s really very sad lol. I just saw that FitBit is launching a new activity monitor and I waaaaannnntttt one. Yes I know I already have one lol, but I am always tempted by the wrist worn ones. The only reason I have not switched to a wrist one is because they just aren’t as accurate and that is important to me. I love my Body Bugg don’t get me wrong! Love that thing and depend on it day in and day out.
But I will wait till it launches and see some of the reviews as far as accuracy goes. It’s amazing how quickly the reviews come in! When the Flex was released earlier this year they had reviews up within hours of that thing being sold lol. And the reviews are what kept me from buying one, well that and I had just bought my Body Bugg a few months earlier so I need to be happy with what I have. But now that I’ve had it for 8 months I can “almost” justify trying a new one, right? Maybe not? Maybe I should wait a year.
I love the accuracy of my Body Media. I do not like that it is constantly on my tricep and that it’s not water resistant. But otherwise the Body Media is really accurate and dependable. I have compared it using my heart rate monitor and it is spot on as far as counting calories burnt. I love the sleep mode analysis too and rely on that daily. I would absolutely forget to put a tracker into sleep mode! When I’m tired I just fall asleep standing up it seems lol, so remembering to put it into sleep mode would be lost on me. The Body Media just somehow knows when I fall asleep, that is priceless to me! My work is pretty active and I barely have time to sit down and type most of the day, so that wouldn’t be a detraction for me so much. I guess for me to spend another $130 it would have to be significantly better than the Body Media.
Ok I’m done rambling. Here is the Force if anybody wants to check it outFitbit Force
