Default Carlorie Burn Devices

Hey all I want to get a calorie burn monitor. However the body bugg is really out of my price range. Do any of you know of an accurate device that calculates calories burned through out the entire day?

Thanks all I really appreciate it!

Have a happy Tuesday

I think the Nike GoWear Fit is basically the same idea. It's about $180: http://www.amazon.com/GoWear-Lifesty...6333249&sr=1-1
GOAL!! 80+ lbs less of me and 13.1 miles later... I'm still running!

My very long goal story w/ photos!!

I love the fitbit at $100 and I have a GWF as well. The fitbit has free logging, no subscription. www.fitbit.com.. Only drawback is it doesn't handle stuff like weight lifting. And the sleep band sucks.
SW:170/CW:117/GW:125 Woohoo Goal!

Fitbit is back ordered and won't ship until March 31. I bought mine of Craigslist. They are also for sale on Ebay.

I love mine. I don't use the band to sleep with on my wrist. I used the idea of several of the members who made a tether to keep it more secure and have it on my pajama bottoms at night.

The 'community' is a very nice community too. They have a free forum.
