Weight Watchers New Activity Monitor

My ActiveLink

Preface: This is my own personal opinion about this product. I do not get anything from Weight Watchers for sharing this with you. I want you to know about it because I truly believe it will have a positive impact on your weight loss.

For months, I have been keeping a secret and I am so thankful that this week the secret is out! This week at my Weight Watchers meetings, I had the priviledge of introducing ActiveLink to my Weight Watchers members.

As a Weight Watchers leader, I was sent an ActiveLink over the summer, so that I could begin using it. When I received my ActiveLink, I was pregnant and I did not even know if I wanted to try it until after Olivia was born. After my coworkers began talking about how great ActiveLink was/is, I decided to give in and start using mine.

I am so glad that I began using my ActiveLink when I did!

After setting up ActiveLink on my computer, it began a seven day evaluation of my daily activity. I was supposed to wear my ActiveLink all day, every day. I used the clip and wore it on my bra. Each night, I plugged my ActiveLink into my computer to download the information that had been stored in my ActiveLink throughout the day. At the end of the seventh day, the ActiveLink website set up a daily personal activity goal for me that wass based on my average daily activity.

Each day, I wear my ActiveLink and try to reach my personal activity goal. ActiveLink gives me feedback throughout the day to help me see how much or how little I have moved. If I have not reached 100% or my goal, I know that I need to get up and go walking before calling it a night.

At the end of each day, I plug in my ActiveLink to my computer and it downloads my activity information. The ActiveLink website shows me whether or not I reached my daily personal activity goal and provides a summary of the activity that I did that day. Each week, I am emailed a summary of my weekly activity!

The ActiveLink Activity Monitor costs $39.95, plus a monthly fee of $5 for the subscription. Access to the Internet and an active eTools subscription are required. This activity monitor is completely waterproof and can be used in the shower or while swimming.

This little tool has already helped to motivate me to move more and I truly believe that this is a good investment!

Sounds interesting. Is it compatible with Apple computers?

Huh. Thanks for the info! I (sadly) haven't actually made it to a WW meeting in about 6 months. (Perhaps that's why I am stuck, huh??) I think I'll find a meeting this weekend so I can learn more about this thing and see it in person!

Sounds like a Fitbit, only w/ a subscription fee and doesn't measure sleep data. Maybe the next upgrade will! :) Sleep data was FACINATING!
