Polar Balance

One of Polar’s latest offerings is the Polar Balance smart scale. Here is the info from their website:

Did you gain a few of those Christmas pounds? Or maybe made a new year’s resolution to start a healthier life. The new Polar Balance is a complete weightmanagement service that combines the Polar Balance Bluetooth® Smart scale, a Polar wearable fitness device*, and the Polar Flow app and web service.

Step on the Polar Balance scale and your weight is sent to your Polar product or directly to the Polar Flow app (iOS 2.5.1 & Android 2.5.2 or later). From then onwards, Polar Balance with thBalance appe help of your Polar wearable, will keep you on track based on your weight and daily activity by giving you motivational feedback and advice on what you should do to reach the set goal weight.

After defining the target weight and time you want to lose those pounds or kilos, Polar Balance will tell you with just one glance are you losing or gaining weight and whether you should eat less or be more active. All you need to do is make sure you reach those daily activity goals shown on your wrist and maintain a steady, healthy diet.

This is how it works:
