Imagine a scale that records your weight and calculates your BMI, and allows you to do it from anywhere…well, that’s exactly what the iHealth digital scale does!
This unique scale reads and records your weight on your iPod touch, iPhone or iPad. It weighs only around 4 pounds, and is sleek and attractive. Now I’m not tech savvy at all, but setting it up was easy. You have to download the app (free) that is made for this scale and it will keep track of the weight and BMI onto your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. Then, step on the scale (that’s how you turn it on), and activate Bluetooth on your iOS device. Go to the Bluetooth settings and the name of the scale appears. Directions for how to connect were easy to follow, and I was able to get it set up.
Whenever you need to, just launch the iHealth Scale app while standing on the scale. Your weight appears on the scale and is entered into the app. But that’s not all the app does. The app allows you to enter information about your height, current weight, goal weight, and more. You can input calories you’ve eaten and burned (not something I keep track of because I’m lazy and out of shape), and the app will tell you how many calories over or under your goal that you are. Pretty cool, huh?
The app does so much more than what I mentioned…but to be honest, the app is way more than I need. I also don’t have a lot of time to try to figure out all that the app does. It didn’t seem to be really user friendly, and entering some of the info was confusing. I think my husband would use it if I took the time to explain it to him because he’s in much better shape than I am.
The scale is really a pretty scale to look at, and I was excited to review it. However I’m not sure that I would pay $69.99 for it. If you are a health and fitness fanatic, I can see how it would be beneficial. But for me? Not so much…
