Ok, I have completed the assessment phase and the Gruve now tells me if I have met my goal it has set for me or not.

I have not started to get up when it vibrates yet.  It is probably going to be hard with the type of job I do, but I’m going to give it a shot.

Other than that, I don’t have too much to say about the Gruve itself, but I have made some observations as far as the differences between the Gruve and the GoWear Fit.

To me they both look like good products, just aimed at different target audiences.  The GoWear Fit seems to be for people that are into the numbers, know to factor in RMR when looking if they met their goal or not.  The Gruve, on the other hand, looks to be good for people that have not done all the research and just want some help meeting their goal and to track their progress.

By tracking your calories burned *above* your RMR, it makes it easier to look at over time;  so after 6 months when my RMR goes down and I burn less *total* calories, it doesn’t look like I’m sliding backwards.

Basically, I think the Gruve is a good fit for people that don’t understand or don’t want to understand the in’s and out’s of calorie burn rates but just want something to help them track how they are doing and motivate them to keep going.
