This is a partnered post, I received a sample.
Did you know that at AT&T in stores and on-line you will find a very large selection of Activity tracking devices? You probably never really thought about it before because you already have one you like. If you don’t have one already you might want to consider getting the GOBE Calorie/fitness Tracker.
I received the GoBe because I wanted to find out if it actually does count your calories. It took the bracelet a day I feel like to learn my system before it started counting anything. Then it finally did start counting. What it does is is measures a change in your glucose levels. GoBe measures calorie intake from carbs, proteins, and fats. It uses FLOW Technology to analyze changes in your body’s glucose concentration–not by measuring absolute glucose levels. As glucose concentrations rise, cells absorb glucose and release water. GoBe uses an impedance sensor that sends high and low frequency signals through your tissue to measure the fluid moving in and out of your cells. FLOW Technology uses an advanced algorithm to analyze this data and determine calorie intake. If you’re following a ketogenic or low-carb diet, simply set the Diet field to “Low Carb” in your app profile. This setting ensures the most accurate possible calorie intake measurement for people on a low carb diet.
I’m not sure as to it being an exact counting because when I would drink alcohol the calories were always counted at night and pretty much would fluctuate all night long. So I would just say yes I was eating all night long because I figured it was still my body processing calories. I really do like the app that goes along with this product because it measures your blood pressure and constant heart rate. I learned that my heart gets so slow at night that sometimes I measure as possibly having sleep apnea. Which is an interesting find because I had no idea. It’s a fantastic new product and comes in more than one color. You can easily change the band to another color.
Things it’s missing:
It’s missing the social interaction of other people you know
It has to be charged once a day and sometimes doesn’t even last a day
It’s really big and when I sleep on it sometimes it hurts my hand.
At 299 in price I would wait for version two to come out before purchasing this item. But we have other options for you.
if you’re after some bling you might want to get the CaseMate Rebecca Minkoff Notification Bracelet. Rebecca Minkoff’s name has been synonymous for years with handbags, shoes and jewelry.
