I have mentioned this in the past, that Gowear Fit was the company that makes the Body Bugg which is showcased on the television show The Biggest Loser. The Bodybugg is a system that uses many sensors to accurately determine how many calroies you burn during the day. You then enter how much food you had to eat and see if you lost weight. It is the ultimate tool for calroies in vs calories out.
So when you purchase a bodybugg, you are purchasing a product created by BodyMedia.
What happened to Gowear Fit? Again, I take this from their blog
” We have changed the brand name of our product from GoWear fit to BodyMedia FIT. We did this to leverage the brand equity the company has built over the past 11 years around wearable body monitors.”
Well you can purchase the bodybugg at bodymedia.com for $189 (With a subscription to their website for as low as $7/month. If you want the display with it, the total is $259. You get one month free at bodymedia.com
You can order a Bodybugg from 24 hour fitness with the display for $249 and you receive six month subscription to the website. This means that currently the best deal for a bodybugg is at 24 hour fitness. Plus you can get an addition $15 off using the coupon AFPBGD1 when you buy the bodybugg and display. Your price is $234 (see image below).
This price, and coupon according to the 24 hour fitness website is now through 3/31/10
I've contacted both 24 hour fitness and bodymedia to see if I could get an evaluation unit to play with for two weeks. I'll keep you posted.
