Just a few months ago, you would struggle to find too many companies that got the iPhone. We always have early adopters and innovators, but it usually takes time for companies (big or small) to adopt new technologies and use them to grow their business. But these days, more companies are starting to develop products that take advantage of the iPhone to provide value to consumers at home and on the go. Withings WiFi Body Scale is one of those products. I heard about Withings WiFi Body Scale a few days after it was announced. The concept was certainly interesting. A scale that can keep track of your weight, BMI, and all other information on a daily basis can be a great motivational tool, especially for those who are struggling to lose weight.
This scale promises easy weight and fat mass monitoring on a private website, so you can always access your information no matter where you are around the world. But Withings WiFi Body Scale goes beyond that and comes with a free iPhone app that lets you keep track of your weight at all times. Now, most people don’t see major changes in their weight in every couple of days. At the same time, it’s nice to have the option to track weight on iPhone.
Withings WiFi Body Scale is certainly not a cheap gadget, but is the perfect tool to own for those who want to finally get themselves motivated enough to get over the hump and lose the extra weight. Losing weight is not the only thing you need to do to get healthy, but a lot of your problems can be solved if you drop the excess fat. With this scale, there is no where to run. As long as you don’t avoid your scale, your graphs and charts will tell you whether you are making progress or going in the wrong direction.
Should you get Withings WiFi scale? It depends. Sure, being able to tweet your stats automatically, sync your data online, and having access to it on your iPhone are all fun. But if you avoid your scale (as a lot of us like to do), then there are better ways to spend your money. One thing is for certain. We are going to see more iPhone-connected physical products in 2010, so it’s going to be a fun year in that regard.
