My New GoWear Fit

I've been saying I wanted one for over a year ... and I finally did it!  I bought a GoWear Fit calorie tracking device.  Originally I'd planned to buy the BodyBugg (like the Biggest Loser folks wear) but after doing some research I settled on the GoWear Fit instead.
I got it Friday night and set it up with my computer.  Saturday was my first full day of wearing it and I'm pretty amazed so far.  I'll do a full review of it in a few days after I'm able to see some trends and establish some concrete numbers.  But my initial impression are good so far.  Here's a few thoughts:
  • I burn about 600 calories while I sleep
  • I wake up during the night more often than I realized. My sleep efficiency is at about 85%
  • Yesterday I burned 2500 calories through my normal routine and exercise
  • My calorie intake yesterday was much higher than normal because I ate too much crap - 1800 - but it was still low enough to create a calorie deficit overall
  • When I'm wearing the GoWear Fit I want to move more
  • Seeing the calories-burned-count go up all day long is a major motivator for exercise or just being more active in general
  • It's 9:15 a.m. and since midnight I've burned 712 calories so far 
So I'm pretty excited to have it.  I'll keep ya'll posted on how it works out.
BTW -- if you're going to buy one, get it on Amazon.  I got the armband, display watch and 3 months subscription for $209.  Here's the link.  Scroll down to the section called "Best Value" and you'll see an option to buy both the armband and the display together and save $50. 
Talk to you soon!
