The average scale only measures weight. Knowing your weight alone doesn’t provide that much insight into your health. There are many factors that can effect your weight. It’s not just a question of how much body fat you have, but also how much muscle. With Pivotal Living’s smart scale you can find out your weight as well as your body fat percentage and lean body mass. The scale also can calculate your Body Mass Index (BMI) which takes into consideration your height and weight and lets you know if you are underweight, just right or overweight. It also calculates your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) which shows how many calories your body burns each day just from being alive. This information is very helpful in making choices concerning your health. Through Bluetooth technology and your smart phone, the scale sends the information to the Pivotal Living app.
The app can help you chart your weight, lean body mass, body fat, BMI and BMR so you can see how your body is changing over time. The app can even help you log your food and caloric intake! It provides a complete weight management program, an accurate overview of how your current activities and eating habits are effecting your body.
The app and scale combination was designed to be used by more than just one person. There is an automatic recognition feature and the app can hold up to 16 separate profiles. The scale itself is nice looking and durable. It can hold and accurately measure the weight of people weighing up to 350 pounds. There are short legs on the scale that protect your flooring as well as allowing the scale to work well on carpet. The scale comes batteries included and the batteries keep their charge for about three and a half weeks.
