Withings Scale

As I've gotten into my 50s, something has occurred that has never been an issue for me, I've put on some weight. Nothing earth shattering but enough to get me focused on my weight for the first time ever.

So in the spirit of "you can't manage what you can't measure", I decided to get a scale. And because my friend Naveen is such a fan of the Withings scale, I went for that.

The Withings scale is a thing of beauty. It is sleek and looks great in my closet.

The scale measures your weight, body fat %, pulse rate, temperature, and CO2 levels in your home.

It connects to the wifi in your home and communicates with the Withings app on your iPhone and Android. You never have to connect anything to anything. The data flows over the air from scale to phone. The app provides a timeline of your key stats and gives you goal settings for them.

It's geek and chic at the same time. I'm into it and thought that some of you might be as well. Like most things, it is available at Amazon.
