How a Smart Scale Can Help You Manage and Monitor Your Weight

smart-scale-benefitsOur 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.

APP-PARTNERS-FOR-SMARTSCALE

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).Data-from-Smartrack-app-3

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!

Three Things to Know About Digital Bathroom Scales

As experts in bathroom scales, we wanted to share with you a few facts about digital scales. We’ve summed up our customer’s frequently asked questions into the following important facts about bathroom scales:

step-on-3Every time a digital scale is moved it needs to be calibrated.
Initializing the scale resets the internal parts allowing the scale to find the correct “zero” weight and ensure accurate readings. If the scale is moved and you do NOT calibrate it, you are likely to see fluctuations in your weight. Moving any digital scale can potentially affect accuracy and dependability.

Also, when certain EatSmart models are placed on the floor with the LCD light already on, the scale will display the weight of the platform (4.6lb to 5.6lb – depending on model). Always allow the scale to shut off before you stand on it for your weight reading. The following steps can be used to calibrate any of our EatSmart Products bathroom scales:

  1. Place the scale back on a hard, flat surface (see #2 below for optimal flooring surfaces).
  2. With one foot, press the platform of the scale so that numbers appear on the display. Once you see zeros or dashes remove your foot.
  3. Wait for the scale to turn off again.
  4. Your scale is now calibrated.  Step up onto the scale for a weight reading.

EatSmart scales are engineered to provide maximum accuracy and will NOT provide accurate readings on carpeting.
Linoleum, vinyl and other softer flooring can cause small variations in weight depending on how much cushion there is. Every EatSmart Bathroom Scale has four high precision sensors in each one of its feet. We suggest placing the scale on a hard, flat surface. Optimal surfaces include ceramic or porcelain tile, hard wood or concrete.

For the most accurate results, step onto the scale, stand completely still and count to three.
Moving around and shifting your weight while standing on the scale may cause inaccurate readings.  Once you step onto the scale, do not to move until your weight is locked in and displayed on the LCD screen.Thingstoknowaboutdigitalbathroomscales3

Some Good Advice for Cancer Survivors—Lose the Weight

Do we really need to read another article to understand the importance of maintaining a healthy weight and why we need to lose those extra pounds??  I thought not until I read a very interesting article highlighting research that suggests breast cancer survivors who maintain a healthy weight are significantly less likely to suffer a recurrence, regardless of the type of cancer treatment they received.

Heavy women are not only more likely to discover their cancer has returned, but they are  also more likely to die of breast cancer than thinner women, according to a study published in the American Cancer Society’s journal, Cancer. “We found that obesity at diagnosis of breast cancer is associated with about a 30 percent higher risk of recurrence and a nearly 50 percent higher risk of death despite optimal treatment,” Dr. Joseph Sparano, a professor of women’s health at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City and author of the study.

WHAT REALLY STRUCK HOME WITH ME was the fact cited in this article that women who are just moderately overweight  increase their risk of recurrence. Not great news when currently 64% of women in the US are overweight. Researchers believe that excess body fat may cause hormonal changes in the body that fuel cancer to spread and recur. Overweight women produce more estrogen and that can cause hormone receptor-positive cancers — the most common type of breast cancer — to grow.

Just more proof that women need to be good to their bodies, both by eating right and finding the time to incorporate regular exercise in their lives.

If you need help tracking your progress toward a healthier weight, keep reading! Brand New and available for sale on Amazon.com is the EatSmartTM Precision Tracker Digital Bathroom Scale! This bathroom scale is innovative in its ability to display three readings at each weigh in: current weight, weight change from the last weigh in, and total change from starting weight.  The Precision Tracker will help you achieve long term weight goals, by tracking each small improvement — just  the motivational tool needed to achieve success.

Tell us what you think of the Precision Tracker – would it help you with your weight loss goals?
