Just like everything else nowadays, your weight loss journey can also become more high tech, online and if you like, connected to social media sites.
What is a Wi-Fi Body Scale?
A Wi-Fi body scale connects to an online device using a Wi-Fi connection. Sounds pretty high tech, doesn’t it? The scale looks like most scales and slightly resembles the Wii Balance Board.
Instead of just measuring your weight, this scale also tells you your lean body mass percentage compared to your fat mass and also your BMI. Lean mass includes your muscles and vital organs, but you actually need to have a certain percentage of body fat as well.
Women traditionally have more fat for being able to go through child birth, breast feeding, etc. Just because someone is thin, doesn’t necessarily mean they are healthy, especially if they have a low percentage of lean body mass. For that reason, the Wi-Fi body scale really is key to any weight loss program.
Why Use A Wi-Fi Body Scale?
The benefit of the Wi-Fi body scale is that you can take the results with you anywhere. You can have your data sent to your computer or smartphone by using the free downloadable app.
With your data on the go you can help your doctor or weight loss specialist track your results as well.
There are also over 50 fitness companies where you can send your data for even more assistance with tracking exercise, counting calories and more.
How Much Do Wi-Fi Body Scales Cost?
The cost of Wi-Fi body scales does vary, but it’s certainly less than the cost of a gym membership or hiring a personal dietician.
Another benefit of a digital scale like this is that it can save more than one profile making it available for the entire family to use.
