An important part of any weight loss program is keeping a record of your behavior – or “journaling.” Your SmartByte™ does that for you automatically – without additional fees or hassle. To keep track of your usage, your SmartByte™ contains a microsensor that automatically keeps track of your device use and tracks your progress towards the goals you set.
You will receive a SmartByte™ Reader with your device that enables you to periodically upload your current weight and usage data to a secure website that tracks your usage and progress. You can elect to share (or stop sharing) this information with your physician, dietician or other health care provider.
To encourage you on your weight loss journey, you can also 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 SmartByte™ together, you can check each other’s compliance and progress online. Research has demonstrated the importance of having the social support of family and friends when losing weight.
