Our Taylor Body Fat Smart Scale does much more than simply track your weight; it estimates body fat, body water and muscle mass. The scale uses this information to determine the maximum calories needed to maintain your current weight. Every time a user steps on the scale their data is automatically sent to their smart phone or tablet using Bluetooth technology. Pretty exciting, isn’t it?
Whether you are a dieter looking to lose weight or an athlete in training, this is the ultimate tool for tracking your progress. It allows you to set a definitive weight goal and measures your progress every time you step on the scale. It stores up to 8 users’ personal profiles and recognizes each user based on past weight.
The Taylor Smart Scale works in tandem with the SmarTrack app. This free app only takes a few minutes to set up and connect. The SmarTrack app, available for both iPhone and Android, allows simple real-time synchronization of your data and back-up storage in the cloud. Access all of your stats anywhere, at any time. Already using a fitness app? No problem as SmarTrack integrates with many popular apps like RunKeeper, MapMyFitness and MyFitnessPal.
The SmarTrack app allows you to view your progress in graph form, providing a clear visual of your current body composition. For body weight, body fat and body water, the app shows your most recent data point and how it compares on a spectrum based on your profile – low (blue), normal (green), moderate (yellow), and high (red).
How does the Smart Scale gauge your body fat, body water and muscle mass? It uses BIA technology to send a low intensity electrical signal through the body. The rate at which this signal flows lets the scale estimate your body composition. Anyone who works out at least 3 times a week for 2 hours at a time should choose athletic mode to get an accurate reading.
Why is it body composition important? It is ideal when losing weight or training for an athletic event to lose body fat rather than muscle mass. Body water ratios are higher in lean tissue as opposed to fat tissue and knowing your stats is a good indicator of how healthy your body is. This is especially important for athletes as they train; dehydration greatly impedes performance.
The Taylor Smart Scale makes it easy for anyone who is looking to focus on weight management and a long term commitment to a healthy lifestyle. It’s the perfect way to ensure you will have reliable tracking of all of your progress and hard work!
