Are you serious? WiFi Digital Bathroom Scales? Why on earth would anyone want those? Well, in this day and age it seems more and more devices are coming with WiFi connectivity. For example, there’s even some internet-connected cars being released.
Go back a number of years and tell someone that their clock should have wireless Internet connectivity and feed from Facebook and they would look at you as if you had spontaneously morphed into an elk. Another thing rife in the world right now is an obsession with health, fitness and complete and utter vanity. Therefore, it makes perfect sense to put WiFi internet connectivity in our bathroom scales. Perfect for the overweight nerd.
But actually, cynicism aside the Internet connected bathroom scales actually provide some interesting features and functionality. For example, with the correct software on your PC working in conjunction with your regular ‘weigh-ins’, you can monitor your weight loss throughout the day, month or year and even sync with Google Health and share your progress (or lack of), with the world on Facebook or Twitter.
Alternatively, you don’t even need the right PC software, or even a PC. You can use the scales alongside an iPhone app if you so wish, which features a great user interface and all the same information, graphs and apparent necessities that the PC software includes. The program is also compatible with favourable coaching apps such as RunKeeper and WeightBot, or online programs like Daily Burn.
So in terms of features, for the diet-minded reader, the software allows you to monitor your weight, fat mass and BMI every time you step on, and in case you are envisaging a ghastly set of bulky scales with humungous WiFi antenna protruding from every angle, however this set of digital body weith scales is actually quite sleek, with a fairly modern design fitting for most bathrooms.
So these WiFi Digital Bathroom Scales perfect for the dieters among us, perfect for anyone really who just wants to keep an eye on their weight and maintain good fitness, compare with others or show off on various social networks. It’s actually a fairly decent innovation and had it come from a well known electronics brand, Rosemary Conley would be raving at the idea no doubt!
