Crazy abdominal patch promises to burn fatHate working out? Here's a device that's supposed to vibrate fat away.
The Koogeek FG1 is one of the quirkier devices I've seem in a long time. It is this little rubbery device that has these contact sensors on the back. So, you peel off the backing, you stick it onto your abdomen, and instead of a workout, just stick the FG1 on your stomach, let it run for 30 minutes, or, they said, up to 10 hours, which seems excessive. Then it's suppose to send these pulses. Electrical muscle stimulation into your body and facilitate weight loss. I'm very skeptical of any device that sais that is can stimulate fat burning or weight loss or anything like that. I think working out the [INAUDIBLE] is probably your best bet. I'd just try it out and. It kind of worked. It started pulsing, but then it would kind of immediately stop. So I'm not convinced how well this device would actually function in a real life setting. And it's available on Amazon for $100. And it claims to have a battery life of up to ten hours. So you can use it for an extended period of time, charge it back up with the built-in charging pad, and then get to it again.
