I found a video online from one of those computer "expos" with BodyMedia there. A representative SAID ON CAMERA that the new armband is to be released in August 2013. (video taken in Jan I think) All Bodymedia is saying on their FB page is "fall". So I posted the link on their Facebook page, explaining that their REP SAID August! No response...within 15 seconds, my post was deleted. hmmmm I wasn't rude, I was just asking!! lol

Plus, I wanna know how much the "sold separately" HRM band is going to be. It's NOT built into the new band, not to mention, it kinda looks uncomfortable!! LOOK!!

You mean that something announced at CES doesn't ship on time? Shocking, never happens.

I'd guess it would be soon. The 20-25% off specials they are running in August may be to clear out inventory before announcing a new product.

Yes its driving me nuts because my subscription ran out and I do not want to extend it if the Core 2 will include it

I am getting inpatient lol

Tell me about it. I'm tired of their crap.

I'm hesitant to replace my existing band with this one now. It must be a terrible device if they're not able to give us a release date. What could possibly take this long to bring it to market? They're acting very sketchy and I don't like it.

My device is on it's last leg.. Holding parts in with tape. I wish they'd just hurry up and let us know something

I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for the Core 2. I have a feeling Jawbone is going to kill it or delay it as long as possible so it doesn't compete with it's other products or until they integrate its technology into a Jawbone product.
I have been told by Bodymedia that the Core 2 will not be out for the holiday season (ie, not this year) and that I should instead take a look at the "great" UP line of products from Jawbone.
So Bodymedia people are now pushing me towards UP as a replacement for my old Link armband. Not good.

I think it's fallen victim to the Jawbone purchase. I would be very surprised if we don't see a new device which combines the wrist element of Jawbone with the tech of Bodymedia. I think it's very telling that the Link is now $30 off and comes with 12 months subscription for free on their website. That sounds like a clear-out sale.

The link is $49 right now at 24 Hour Fitness. That's pretty crazy.

s that the core2?

I wanted a Link, but now I'm wondering if I should just look at the UP products for Jawbone? I'm so confused. grumble

Who is Link by?..

I just bought the UP24 and sending it back. I've had the bodymedia armband for so long that I don't want something on my wrist 24/7. It's a nice device and yet gets snagged on things and is bothersome. I really hope that the core 2 will be realized in the near future.
