“The scale can only tell you what you weigh, not who you are”

Steve Maraboli

I’ve tried out some new fitness technology lately. I’ve tried a few new apps to see how it enhances my fitness journey. Aside from the BeetsBLU Heart Rate Monitor I’ve recently been using, my new favorite thing is my BeetsBLU Smart Scale. BeetsBLUScaleIt doesn’t just tell you your weight but it also connects to your phone via Bluetooth to keep track of your progress. It monitors your weight, fat percentage, body water and muscle mass and saves in on your phone.

It was incredibly easy to use and comes with batteries included so you can get right on it out of the box and start tracking your progress. The scale gives me the information really fast! Quick enough that I could be putting my shirt on for the day, step on the scale and by the time I’m done, I’ve already tracked my stats for the day.

I tried the product out for a little over a week to watch the progress and it’s always matched up to another scale I had in the house in terms of weight but I’ve never been able to track everything else too.

Have more than one person in your house that wants to track their progress? No worries, BeetsBLU has you covered. You can set up different user profiles so each member of your family can track. It also updates your Health App (via iPhone/ Apple Watch) if that’s where you hold most of your health information.

I blurred out my weight information because it's none of your business :)

I haven’t figured out yet though if there’s a way to get the scale to update my weight in other health apps (MyFitnessPal, etc).

Best time to weigh yourself according to the scale? In the morning, after “the morning toilet,” no clothes, before your shower and breakfast. If you think you may forget, the app, “SmartScale” reminds you when you turn it on to get the most accurate measurements. I’ve known what my weight was but I was really impressed with all that the scale could tell me and I think it’ll be extremely useful as I begin this new journey toward serious weight loss. You can buy the scale for $74.95 on their website or via Amazon.com. Though the SmartScale is compatible with most phones, just double-check first before you get it and realize it doesn’t work with whatever phone you have.

Though a scale is a great way to keep track of your fitness journey, don’t look to it for your self-worth. The number and graph could go up, could go down but this product is supposed to help, not make you feel worse about yourself. You’re beautiful whatever it says! 🙂

Note: I was given this product for free to try but aside from free product, have not been compensated for my opinion and what I’ve said here is what I honestly think of the product.
