The GoWear Fit is a dud. I plugged it in last night. It's supposed to take 3 hours to charge; it took 4. I put it on and within 6 hours it gave me a low battery warning. (The battery is supposed to last 5-7 days!)
I called the company and they said to send it back and they would replace it. I told them I would rather have a refund. I mailed it back today without return authorization since customer service had already closed for the day. I don't work Fridays and didn't want to wait until Monday. I didn't have enough money for the postage so I borrowed some from Brad. It's being sent back the same way it got here - UPS ground. They should have it by Thursday.
I was supposed to do laundry today, but with the GoWear Fit not working and my gym having a special on the BodyBugg, I decided to get that. So I went to my gym instead of the laundromat. At first when I walked in I didn't see the display up and was worried they might not have the special anymore. But I asked at the front desk and they did so I bought it. :)
It comes out to about the same cost as the GoWear Fit. The armband is roughly $250, vs. $160 for the GoWear Fit (with a 12 month commitment). The BodyBugg comes with 6 months included. The watch/monitor is the same as the GoWear Fit - about $100. The special at the gym was that if you buy the BodyBugg armband you get the monitor for free. All together, with tax, it came to $270.79. The GoWear Fit was $282.64 with tax. SO not a huge difference.
The best I can tell the main difference is that the BodyBugg does not have reminders and does not measure sleep efficiency. I can also only log my weight once a week; GoWear Fit allows daily logging if so desired.
I will admit, the stress of today's drama got to me. I needed comfort food and craved a cheeseburger from the burger joint downstairs. I borrowed some money from someone else (Brad was already gone) and got it. But at least I asked for it with no mayo, put my own no calorie ketchup on it, and I didn't get fries or a shake, just the burger. That has to count for something.
So...I'll be back Sunday with a report of whether or not the BodyBugg works the way it's supposed to! Grrr.
Tomorrow I have an A.M. doctor's appointment and I will do my laundry after that. Saturday won't be any more restful due to the Walk For Life. I am looking forward to it and it is certainly good to do something like this on the Sabbath, but it is not restful. :-p I'll give a report of the walk Sunday or Monday.
