This sounds cool, I would probably give it a go.
No ! I don't want to watch my calories and freak out when eating a bowl full of ice cream, lol . I want to enjoy my food and use my own judgement for watching out my eating habits. I have never counted calories in my diet. Might not be healthy but I just can't get myself to do it.

No. I have no need to count calories. I just try to eat a reasonably balanced diet all the time.
No I would'nt. I genetically dont watch my calorie level.

I want one....like really really want one!
I don't think I would..... but it could be a case of never say never! Who knows? It could end up being one of those things, like mobile phones, that everyone scoffs at when it first appears then in a few years has become totally ubiquitous and people are astonished if you don't use one.....
Yes, I sure would if I wanted to lose weight.
I think it is a brilliant idea for those people who are obese or overweight and want to do something about it.

I count calories once a week anyway, and it is quite interesting to see how many calories each food has -in fact -quite amazing.

As I am not really overweight however, I cannot envisage having to use one of these, however think it a good idea for people with little will power and something for them to concentrate on while trying to lose weight.

No. Sounds like just another 'quick fix' fad - without exercise and know-how, forget it.

why would I do that, I do not count calories, and do not intent to
My son gave me a fitbit as one of my Christmas gifts. This counts your calories, as well as your steps, and the distance you walk.
To answer the question - yes I do wear it.
