2 WITHINGS WI-FI BODY SCALE
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.
