It’s never good when your bathroom scale gives you inconsistent readings. That’s probably one of the reasons why people seem to like these new high-tech scales that can track your weight history via your smartphone. There aren’t too many available on the market yet, so it’s good to see more alternatives popping up like this one from Wahoo Fitness.
The Wahoo Balance Smartphone Scale is powered by Bluetooth, and it allows you to track your weight and BMI over time. It will send your weigh-ins directly to your iPhone or iPad via a free app. The scale itself can manage up to 16 different users and it can hold up to 130 weight readings. Keep in mind that it only works with the Phone 5, iPhone 4S, iPod Touch (5th generation), iPad (3rd and 4th generations), and iPad Mini – presumably because it’s using Bluetooth 4 tech.
The scale is available for pre-order now for $99(USD). Orders will start shipping in the first week of December, so they could make a nice gift idea – assuming the recipient doesn’t think you’re trying to send them a message about their weight.
