Worried that you might be piling on the pounds a bit too much over Christmas? Dreading the thought of the new year’s resolutions? Well help could be at hand from the latest household connected device.
Say hello to the catchily-named Pyle Bluetooth Fitness Scale. Available now for $59.99 in black, green, orange, pink, or grey, these bathroom scales will link to your smartphone or tablet using Bluetooth. The scales will send information about your weight, body fat percentage, muscle mass and bone mass to your device, which will use this information to tailor workouts accordingly.
Pyle (who normally specialise in audio technology, but have recently launched the Pyle Health range) has a Bluetooth-ready app ready to roll which allows users to create profiles and chart their progress. You can even share your results via Twitter or Facebook if you so please.
The app works on all devices with Bluetooth 4.0 capability – this means everything from the iPhone 4S to the 5S, as well as the iPad 3, 4, and iPad Air, but it will also work on Android devices like the Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 3, Nexus 5, and Nexus 7 tablet, with an Android app coming soon.
Abe Brach of Pyle Audio said of the device, “Our new Bluetooth Fitness Scale combined with our Health Fitness Tracker allows you to set fitness goals and monitor your progress in a safe and effective way. With the ability to measure all aspects of the body’s health was the main goal in development.”
We can’t think of a better way to track your return back from a turkey and stuffing-filled holiday season!
