Why do I need a smart scale?
A short time ago weighed meant to go up to the scale and contemplate the number that showed you the screen. Let’s be honest, this process was scary for most people. The result could be one of these three options: you’ve gained weight, you’ve lost weight or you’re still the same. And nothing else. You stayed there alone with your own conclusions about what you had to do with the numbers you saw. But it’s not like that anymore.
The world of technology has advanced to such a level that no longer surprises us that more and more smart gadgets appear. The latest technology products have come to our daily lives and have conquered us. We use smartphones, smart clocks, fitness monitors, smart homes and cars and so much more, even the actual bathroom scales are already smart. Thanks to this we can know much more about the physical state of our body and our overall health in an easy and fun way.
Today’s smart scales allow us not only to know the body weight but also to receive a detailed and complete report on body composition. The IGeek body fat scale, for example, will
It provides information on the percentage of fat in the body, muscle mass, bone mass, visceral mass, body hydration level, BMI (Body mass Index), BMR (basal metabolism). Only
You have to go up to your scale to receive all this information.
Why is it not enough just to know your weight?
Because body weight alone doesn’t tell you anything specific. It is much more important to know your body fat percentage compared to bone matter, muscle mass, or visceral mass. A person’s overweight can be a normal weight for the other. The body weight depends a lot on sex, age, height, level of physical form. For example, people who practice sports daily tend to have more muscle mass and less body fat, but at the time of weighing this person will get a value that can be interpreted as overweight and make an erroneous conclusion. The lifestyle or age and gender greatly affect the needs of the body.
Let’s put an example: after exercising and following a diet for a week you go up to the bathroom scale for a lifetime to see if you’ve lost or gained weight. If yes, do you know what you’ve really lost? The FAT or the water? Or maybe you’ve gained muscle? Traditional bathroom scales will not give you the answer.
To be aware of your physical form is essential to know the parameters of body composition. Is your hydration level okay? Have you lost your weight or water? How is your body fat level compared to muscle mass and bone mass? Is your visceral mass percentage at a dangerous level? How many calories per day do you need for your metabolism?
IGeek Body Composition Scales analyse your personal parameters. Thanks to the App HealthU + connected with the scale via Bluetooth you can create your own profile with information about your sex, age, height, lifestyle, etc. The IGeek scale allows you to register not only your information but also that of other members of your family or friends (up to 10 users) and calculate the results of the body composition based on your personal parameters.
It is important that you can see your evolution in charts and lists, because knowing that areas need improvement, pay more attention to your diet, you will know which tactics work and which not, set goals and follow up with maximum precision. In addition, the body fat scale is automatically synchronized with fitness Apps, such as Apple Healthkit, Google Fit and Fitbit, which will help you achieve your goals.
The smart scales or BMI are now a trend among fitness lovers and those who want to follow their progress, lose weight or just be aware of their physical form. In other words, if there are much smarter ways to weigh yourself and also to know your physical form, why not use them?
