My Curves is installing the smart machines next week - anyone have experience using these machines?

The system is good in that it shows how most people aren't working hard enough on the machines (each machine will show a green light when you're in the zone and red when you need to push yourself a little more). It also tells you how many calories you burned per workout, which I think is cool (there's also a machine that tells you your heart rate), although I don't know how accurate the reading is. The sensors tend to break easily (I think my Curves' owner has had various machines fixed about 5 times since installation - which isn't cheap) and I'm disappointed that corporate didn't work out all the bugs before encouraging locations to set the program up. It's annoying to do a machine only to find out that the reading didn't record.

I think the program is an addition $5 or so a month (plus a sign up fee), so I feel like I'm getting my money's worth out of it but if it cost more than that I don't think I would sign up again.
