How does it work (the technical details)

bodybuggSP™ systembodybugg version 3

The bodybugg system uses a patented process to measure calorie burn.
The process is based on:
  • Motion: The armband contains an accelerometer that measures motion from multiple perspectives.
  • Steps: The accelerometer counts steps by measuring the distinct patterns created by running or walking.
  • Galvanic skin response: When you sweat, your skin becomes more electrically conductive. This measurement helps the device understand how active you are.
  • Skin temperature: There’s an electronic thermometer inside your armband that monitors how hot you are.
  • Heat flux: When you move, your muscles produce heat. Your armband measures the heat that’s flowing from your body into the environment.

Putting it all together

With its web-based application, a mobile app. for iPhone and Android users, and the bodybugg digital display, the bodybugg system makes it easy to view and manage your calorific data.

For bodybugg users, you can upload data from the bodybugg armband directly to your computer, and use the web-based application to see how many calories you’ve burned throughout the day or during specific activities. Here you will also enter the foods you’ve eaten to track calories consumed and the system will use both data sets to calculate your overall calorie balance for a given period.

For bodybugg system (version 3) users, if you want instant feedback, the Digital Display device (only compatible with the bodybugg version 3) is the perfect companion. It syncs together offering real-time feedback on your calorie burning activities. This device is sold separately.

For new bodybuggSP™ users, if you want instant feedback, you can get real-time access to your daily activity through your smartphone*. The bodybuggSP is currently compatible with iPhone 4, 3GS and 3G, iPod touch (2nd and 3rd generations) and with Google Android devices running OS 2.0 or higher.
