Broadcast Your Weight on Twitter With Withings WiFi Body Scale
Posted on November 12, 2009
The WiFi Body Scale from Withings can record your weight and automatically store it online when you step on the scale. The Withings can also instantly broadcast your weight and weight data to Twitter, but only if you want it to. Simply step on the scale and your latest weight information will be delivered to all your Twitter friends. For some this would seem more like a cruel prank than a feature.
Wired says the scale can also be configured to tweet your weight at different intervals: "It can be configured to Tweet daily, weekly or monthly and will post the amount of lard you have to shed before you reach your goal."
Using Twitter is an optional feature. The scale does let you keep your information private online with useful graphs and charts to track your weight loss progress. This saves you the trouble of having to record and track your weight yourself. There's also an iPhone app available that lets you monitor your weight.
As many as eight different people can use the scale which can store data for up to eight different accounts. The WiFi Body Scale can be purchased here for $160. Withings can also be found on Twitter here.
