Scales sure have come a long way from the old spring-driven models that I grew up with. I remember thinking how cool it was when I saw my first digital readout scale. Compared to what is available now, those old digital scales are about as modern as a stone tablet.
The new Withings Wireless Internet scale offers a lot more than just a person’s weight. It also instantaneously provides a person’s BMI and provides tracking capability with all kinds of different functions.
The scale can be synced to numerous existing mobile apps to accent fitness tracking, weight management, or even just to keep friends, family, or your doctor informed. It also has its own app that allows the user to set goals, receive coaching, or generate historical reports.
While this is all very cool the price tag seems a little steep to me. The Withings WS-30scale is available now from Amazonfor $129.95. But, for someone who is serious about monitoring their weight, this could be a very useful tool.
