I asked customer service. This is their answer:

"Thank you for contacting bodybugg Technical Support!

I understand you want to learn more about Resting Metabolic Rate. I am more than happy to provide you this information.

The web program calculates your actual caloric burn at rest, in terms of the body parameters you have entered into the program (ex. your height, weight, sex, age). . Health condition causing you to have a slower metabolism will affect the accuracy of the data you see on your web program.

If you have further questions or concerns, please feel free to call us. I have created ticket number 548994 for your reference. You may also check out answers to common issues and Frequently Asked Questions at http://bodybugg.com/faq. For bodybuggSP, you may visit http://bodybugg.com/start.

Thank you and have a great day!

So, they use formulas but that is not to say that the bodybugg can still measure stuff. It is interesting, MacMadame, that it seems to measure your muscle loss. This gives me extra hope in the accuracy.

It's good to keep in mind that all these numbers are estimates. :) But some estimates are based on more than others. The more input variables, the more accurate a formula can be.

I have found it to be pretty accurate. But that's not to say that it doesn't get thrown off. Like Saturday I was waving a cow bell with my right arm and Sunday I waved it with my left (where my Bobybugg was) and my calorie burn for sitting in a chair waving a cow bell was higher on Sun. than Sat. when it probably wasn't really. :lol: (I got a cowbell injury on my right finger so I had to switch.) And it can be inaccurate with low impact workouts such as biking.
