Pittsburgh, PA (Vocus) November 18, 2009
BodyMedia, Inc., the pioneer in developing wearable body monitoring systems, has announced significant upgrades to GoWear fit, its complete weight management system that monitors how an individual’s body responds to activity and helps consumers tailor their diet, exercise and sleep to live a healthier lifestyle. As part of an initiative to leverage the brand equity BodyMedia has built over the past 11 years, the company also announced that it is rebranding its GoWear fit product as BodyMedia® FIT.
The new upgrades to the Activity Manager and Armband uploading function deliver a faster and more personalized experience for current users and for those seeking a system to help them lose weight or better understand and manage their overall health.
Delivering real time knowledge of their body, BodyMedia FIT helps users achieve their weight management goals and stay motivated. BodyMedia understands that losing weight is difficult and meeting goals on your own is hard. The company developed its accurate, clinically validated, and patented multi-sensor technology specifically to bring honesty and clarity to their customers’ efforts.
