The Heart Rate Watch Company has added the Wahoo Balance Smartphone Scale to its iPhone fitness offerings to deliver accurate weight and body mass index data.
"We were one of the earliest customers of Wahoo and we are happy to see the company continue to evolve their commitment to iPhone fitness in ways that make good sense and add value for the end user," says Rusty Squire, President of the Heart Rate Watch Company. He adds, "The development of scales that deliver Body Mass Index and are priced well below brands like Tanita is a great direction."
The Wahoo Balance Smartphone scale offers up to 16 user profiles and has an internal memory that will hold up to 130 weights, meaning you can weigh yourself absent the iPhone 4S or iPhone 5 and sync it later. Various compatible apps can also track and graph your weight, as well as BMI, over time.
"As most great athletes know, muscle is heavier than fat, so raw weight alone does not provide you much data related to fitness, whereas you can look at performance relative to BMI and really know where you perform best," says Squire.
For now the Wahoo Blance Smartphone Scale works with TargetWeight for Adults, TargetWeight Pro, TactioHealth, iBody, Monitor Your Weight (including the HD variant), Wahoo Wellness App (free), and more! Users can certainly check Wahoo's apps page for further app developments in the future.
Add this to your iPhone 4S bike pack and have a complete system for fitness and body composition analysis.
"When combined with Wahoo's bike cases, heart rate straps, cadence sensors, running products and more, the new Smartphone Scale makes real sense in expanding the useability of the iPhone as a fitness tool," says Squire. He adds, "The younger generations are all over this technology and it will only continue to grow going forward."
