This scale allows users to wirelessly transmit their weight and body-fat measurements to any Bluetooth-enabled device. A Bluetooth adapter comes with the scale; once it is plugged into a computer’s USB port, the scale will automatically sync with the computer and send new data to it. Accompanying software allows people to track and graph their weight and body-fat composition. The scale is also compatible with Microsoft’s HealthVault, an online service for storing and organizing personal health records.
