MyFitnessPal is excited to announce another new partner to help you reach your fitness goals: BodyMedia.
Founded in 1999, BodyMedia pioneered the development of wearable body monitors that automatically track your calories around-the-clock. BodyMedia's proprietary technology has been clinically validated for accuracy.
The BodyMedia system includes:
- A comfortable and adjustable Armband that automatically collects 5,000 data points per minute from 4 different sensors
- An online Activity Manager that analyzes your data and gives you personalized feedback via the BodyMedia FIT coach (monthly subscription is required)
- Free apps for on the go and up-to-the-minute readings throughout the day to track progress against your goals
With the integration of MyFitnessPal and BodyMedia, you will see several key benefits. You will be able to automatically transfer the calorie burn data gathered by the BodyMedia FIT system to your MyFitnessPal account. And since BodyMedia's data is based on all-day physiological measurements that track calorie burn for every kind of activity, it will be more precise than estimates. Also, your MyFitnessPal food diary will now be linked to BodyMedia's Activity Manager so you can accurately monitor calorie intake versus exercise.
Most importantly, your data can be viewed in either application so you can use the system that best fits your needs. For example, users logging their food intake in MyFitnessPal can simultaneously check their BodyMedia-measured calorie burn for the day, or users consulting ther BodyMedia Activity Manager for information on their calorie activity can simultaneously see their MyFitnessPal calorie count and nutritional summary of their food intake.
