There is a new weapon available to help you in your battle to lose weight. What was once a dieter’s worst enemy has been transformed into an indispensable ally. I am talking, of course, about the scale. These days it seems that the bathroom scale doesn’t get any love. However, FitBit has revolutionized the bathroom scale by turning it into a high-tech weight loss tool. With the FitBit, Aria goes way past simply making you feel guilty for eating that greasy cheeseburger for dinner last night. In addition to keeping track of your weight, the FitBit also records your body fat percentages and calculates your BMI. It can do all of this for up to seven people. All of this data is securely uploaded via built-in Wi-Fi to the FitBit’s online tracking website. The website contains a social networking function along with weight management, and motivational tools. I recently tried purchased the FitBit and will let you know if this super-scale lives up to its top billing and $129.00 price tag.
Appearance and Design
The FitBit is available in two different colors: black and white. It sports a super sleek design that will compliment the decor of even the most luxurious bathrooms. This certainly is one scale you won’t have to hide from company. The scale features a simple and attractive digital LED display on its top. The display shows weight, body fat and other status messages. Although the scale looks modern, sleek, and expensive it only requires AA batteries to power it. This makes it easy to keep your scale up and running as you chase your weight loss (or gain) goals.
Setting up your FitBit may prove to be a bit of a pain. Connecting your FitBit to your computer requires that you disconnect your computer from any wired internet connections and connect exclusively with the FitBit during setup. There were some issues with the setup program. It refused to continue the process even though we were connected only using Wi-Fi. However, FitBit provides a web-based setup. This web-based setup got the scale running running without any further delays. That data is then be transported on your wireless internet connection to the online database where it is analyzed and stored. If you do not have wireless the scale can still be used as a digital scale but you will not be able to use the online dashboard. If you do not have wireless, I recommend looking in to purchasing a wireless router and setting up a network.
Once you have connected to the scale to your computer via the Wi-Fi connection you will be asked to put in some basic information. You have to set up an account with Aria, don’t worry there is no money involved. They will simply ask you for your age, weight, gender, height, etc. and ask you if you would like to set a weight loss goal. You will also want to set up your FitBit so that it knows who is stepping on the scale. If there are several people stepping using it that will involve stepping onto it several times and then selecting your initials after each time. The scale will then recognize your from your weight and body fat measurements.
Tracking your weight and body fat can’t be any simpler. After you are finished setting up and programming your FitBit just step up and see what you weigh. Once you set foot on the scale you will see your weight. If you wait approximately five seconds after you see your weight , the LED screen will light up displaying your initials followed by your body fat measurement.
The Aria FitBit is no ordinary scale. It is your own personal weight loss helper, there to help you keep track of your weight so you can stay on course to break your weight loss goal. The design is far from an eyesore. Its sleek, modern, look is the perfect compliment to any bathroom. The best part about this scale is the online dashboard. Having all of weight and body fat data stored in one place, without even having to lift a finger, is incredible. It ensures that you stay focused, organized, and on track with your fitness goals. You no longer have to be scared of the scale my friends. It has gone from sworn enemy to indispensable ally. With the advent of the technological “smart scale” losing weight has become that much easier.
Improving the equipment used in a laboratory often means investing in new devices, but sometimes certain laboratory equipment can be obtained in used form and serve its purpose just as well. For example, a microscope is often something that can be maintained well over time and last many years. This means that when a laboratory is ready to expand upon or improve their current microscope technology, it might be worth selling those older microscopes so as to help pay for the new devices. There are always going to be educational institutions who could benefit from a used microscope.
