I don’t want to be clichéd, but lets face it all of us are clichéd at one point or the other. I’ve had a wonderful 6 months away from home – I travelled a lot, I did fascinating things, hiked, trekked, and walked miles together at a stretch. I was happy, healthy and felt super amazing. Now that I am back home I feel like I am in a slumber and my fitness and health are taking a slide downhill. So I am going to do the clichéd and say my New Year Resolution is to get fit, start exercising regularly and eat well. While the starting point in crucial it is also important to track your progress to keep yourself motivated. Fitness is not about weight loss but being healthy and having a good BMI. I recently came across a weight scale from Ameego, which gives more than just your weight – Introducing the Ameego Bluetooth Smart Scale.
The product claims to, “Stay motivated to be fit with Smart Bluetooth weighing scale with IOS and Android app for saving and tracking your weight over time.”
Experience with Ameego Bluetooth Smart Scale
There is something attractive about a cute colourful box. Ameego Bluetooth Smart scale comes in a checkered colourful box depicting happy moments with a simple message of – A gift for your health. The scale itself is very lightweight and has a glossy finish. The pack comes with batteries for you to use. Just easily pop open the back and slide the batteries in. The scale is now ready to use. But to get the most use out of it you need to install the accompanying app that will track your weight along with BMI and a few other parameters. There is a sample pamphlet with how to install the app and use.
Using the App: Download the app and create a profile. Enter the details required like name, gender, age and height. These just a few steps and they are very easy. The app can be found on both the App Store and Play Store.
After you’ve set up the app all you need to do is to ensure that the Bluetooth on your phone is on and stand on the scale. As long as your phone is within range the data would sync automatically onto the app. The app will show you data pertaining to your weight, BMI, Fat Percentage, Muscle Mass and much more. Based on your data it would plot and let you know if you are below average, healthy or obese. You can track this for every single parameter. You can easily create profile for multiple family members and use. The only issue I faced with this app is that if there is more than one person in the same weight range the data could get assigned to the wrong family member. To avoid this I suggest creating profile after the person has stood on the scale or manually moving the data to the desired person. You can also track your progress for a longer period of time mapping it as a graph. Apart from the weight confusion when there are more than one people in the same weight range I totally loved this scale and this would definitely be a great companion for me on my fitness journey.
