An important part of any weight loss program is keeping a record of your behavior – or “journaling.” Your SMART™ Device does that for you automatically – without additional fees or hassle. To keep track of your usage, your SMART Device contains a microsensor that automatically keeps track of your device use and helps track your progress towards the goals you set.
You will receive a SMART Reader with your device that enables you to periodically upload your current weight and usage data to a secure website and easily track your usage and progress. If your provider is a physician or a dietician they may ask that you schedule regular visits to read the SMART Device in their office as part of a weight management program or use the data for phone or email contact.
To encourage you on your weight loss journey, you will have the opportunity to invite a Support Group of up to four friends and family members to track your progress with you. This is an optional, no cost feature that you control. You can add or delete members of your support group (total of 4) as often as you wish. If you and a friend are starting SMART™ together, you can check each other’s compliance and progress online as often as you wish. Research has demonstrated the importance of having the social support of family and friends when losing weight.
