Withings, $249 house­holdtech­nol­ogy.com.au ★★★★ These scales are not only smart enough to up­load your weight to the in­ter­net, they’re smart enough to lock it down so the world can’t see. The Withings Wi-Fi Body Scale is a smart ap­pli­ance even with­out its head­line-grab­bing in­ter­net con­nec­tiv­ity, how­ever. It uses sen­sors in its re­flec­tive blue sur­face to mea­sure the weight and per­cent­age of lean mus­cle and fat in users. Con­nect it to a wire­less in­ter­net sig­nal and it can au­to­mat­i­cally trans­mit that in­for­ma­tion to a pass­word­pro­tected pro­file on its web­site and to a free app. Mea­sure­ments are shown in a graph so you can in­spect your progress. Users can set up their own pro­files so per­sonal data doesn’t fall into the wrong hands.
