The BodyTrace weighing scales are probably the first wireless scales in the world to be created. The purpose of the wireless connectivity is to allow them to connect to the web and share your weight with the world.
With your weight being uploaded online it allows you to track your weight increases and decreases through a web based interface and helps you to move in the appropriate direction. The scales will cost $119 and will be launched in November this year. A subscription will cost you $19.99 for 3 months.
A grouping feature is included in the system that allows you to share weight with those friends and family (or the world I guess) so that they can track your process and encourage you more.
'We hear promises about reaching weight loss goals every day, but most of these programs and
systems are lacking real facts and fgures. We are taking this to a whole new level where only
measurable results count. Only hearing that a new weight loss tool works is history. Seeing that
success on a chart, that is future. Our future. said Gyula Borbely, the president of BodyTrace.
The BodyTrace eScale is a bathroom scale that wirelessly uploads and displays the user's weight
at the BodyTrace Website. Since it's using wireless connection it does not require any software
confguration for use. The Website's motivational interface encourages users to share progress,
exercise ideas, recipes and lets people create groups made up of friends, family, or co-workers to
work jointly towards a common goal. Users can even upload progress pictures to motivate
themselves and others!
