Without further ado - I present to you the Beets BLU Full Size Wireless Body Fat Scale.
[I was sent this product for the purposes of this review but as always you can rest assured that all the opinions stated are my own and this is an honest account of my experience with this product.]
First, let's discuss the difference between this type of scales and any old normal weighing scales. Well to start with, they aren't old and inaccurate like the ones which have lived in my bathroom for years! Also - look how pretty they are?!
|Sorry about the feet!|
You need to make sure that you have bare feet when using these scales as they send a pulse through your body which can determine an accurate breakdown of your bodyweight. But how? I hear you ask...this pulse travels differently through muscle, fat, bone, water etc and then the scales use a special algorithm to calculate your percentages and an overall BMI.
The scales were super easy to set up. They come with four AAA batteries and so all I had to do was pop them in and the scales worked (you can change the settings to whichever unit you prefer).
Once synched, the scales communicated their findings to my phone. I could then see a clear breakdown of my weight. I have also set up my target percentages in my profile so I can track my progress towards my goals. You can even set up multiple accounts so other members of your household can use these scales too.
This type of scales are perfect for me as I have been weight training so much recently I now focus much less on my actual weight and much more on what makes up that number since muscle mass weighs more than fat. It definitely took me a while to accept that I was not going to see the number on the scales go down as I felt somewhat disheartened - but now I have these bad boys I once again get to see a number going down (the body fat) and also get overly excited when one of the numbers goes up (muscle mass).
So there you have it. You too could possess your very own set of these scales by purchasing them from Amazon.
