It’s hard to keep accountable when it comes to weight loss. Maybe your iPod touch, iPhone and/or iPad can do that for you! iHealth Lab just announced its new iHealth Digital Scale, which allows health-conscious consumers to test, track, graph and yes, even share, weight information using an iOS portable device.
This Digital Scale looks like your ordinary bathroom foe, but has a high-tech twist. It can communicate to an iPod touch, iPhone and/or iPad using Bluetooth and the companion iHealth Digital Scale App.
Start by creating a personal profile using gender, height and starting weight. The app will then track fluctuations and results based on daily activity, time of day, diet and exercise. It can even send that info to friends and family, Facebook and Twitter, and the family physician.
The iHealth Digital Scale App also allows for an unlimited number of users, so everyone in your house can get involved in a healthier lifestyle.
“Individuals who regularly track their weight at home are more likely to maintain a healthy body weight,” says Adam Lin, iHealth Lab’s GM. “The iHealth Digital Scale empowers users to take control of their personal health by making it easy to not only track their weight loss and gain, but also to see how their food intake and lifestyle choices affect weight change.”
Both the iHealth Digital Scale and the app are expected this fall. The app is free, but the scale will carry an MSRP of $69.95.
