If you’re trying to take off the pounds, you probably step on the scale a few times a week. Sometimes that number is inspiring, sometimes it’s depressing. But what if that scale could actually help you lose weight?
The new Withings WiFi Body Scale scale sends your daily measurements to the web where you can monitor your progress via a website or an iPhone app. The scale also calculates an estimated body mass index based on a height measurement given during setup and figures out your lean body mass by measuring your body’s capacitance.
The scale can also be set to automatically tweet your weight so you can get motivation from your followers. Helpfully, the device now integrates with DailyBurn.com, a popular web-based service that allows individuals to track their weight, log their fitness activities and monitor their daily food intake/calories all in one place.
While the Withings scale won’t take the weight off for you, it could provide the motivation to keep you going until you do.
