Weight Watchers Activelink: Yes or No?

by Kenlie Tiggeman on November 13, 2012

After weighing in last night I stayed for the meeting, and it was mostly about ActivelinkWeight Watchers’ new activity tracking gadget.

Before we discuss the ActiveLink I suppose I should admit that I’ve gained almost three pounds since my last meeting.  I knew that I’d be heavier when I stepped on the scale, but I’m also excited/relieved that I live close enough to attend my meeting regularly now.  Now let’s talk about this new gadget.

The piece costs just under $40, and there’s a $5 charge per month on top of the monthly pass fee that I already pay.

While I did not like that the meeting was all about why I should spend more money, I did like learning about its features.

People in my meeting have been using them for weeks, and most seem to love it.   I’m just not sure that it’s right for me.

At one point I owned a Bodybugg, and I found myself using it as an excuse not to move more.  I was happy to see that I was active, but I used it as a crutch.  It would be fun to try Activelink, but I wonder if I would use it as a crutch as well.

Do you have an Activelink, or a similar gadget?  Do think tracking gadgets are useful, or do you think they’re a waste of money?
