Was it simply that special discount that swayed my decision? The short answer to both questions is yes.

bodymedia tracker body media quantified self tracker review by measured me blogA couple of weeks ago I went to BodyMedia website, and they had a special deal: BodyMedia Core tracker + 12 months of data services subscription for only $99 (well, with taxes and shipping the total came to $119).

The more detailed report on usability of metrics and their validation is coming soon, but in the meantime, I will share some first impressions.
