MyKronoz, a company based in Switzerland, has introduced its very first body scale. The aptly named MyScale comes equipped with a visually appealing LED color display as well as six different measures for providing a comprehensive image of your body.
When it comes to smart scales, the producer of wearables came to the party a little bit late. However, it does have a wide selection of both fitness bands and smartwatches to choose from. This covers the ZeRound3, ZeTime, as well as the newly launched ZeTrack+ and ZeNeo+ models.
The third and fourth options both include an intriguing piece of functionality in the shape of a body temperature sensor. These are the most expensive options. There is a wide variety of timepieces available, and every single one of them may be purchased for less than a hundred dollars.
MyKronoz MyScale: a summary of its technical specifications
MyKronoz has made a commendable debut with their product, MyScale. This device is unlike anything else that we have seen so far because it has a spherical form and a huge LED. The screen is legible even when viewed from a distance of a few feet, and it displays a variety of colors. In fact, MyScale was awarded a RedDot 2021 badge. This is a product design competition that is held on a worldwide level.
The linked scale has a slim design, and the quality tempered glass that sits on top makes it look like it would be at home in any bathroom. The scale has an overall footprint of 34 by 2.7 centimeters, and it tips the scales at 2.1 kilograms.
MyScale gives you the ability to monitor your weight over time, as well as your body mass index (BMI), fat mass, bone mass, muscle mass, and water mass. The first of them, as we have stated many times before, is correct, as is the BMI. However, keep in mind that all of the other metrics are only estimations derived from bioelectrical impedance research, so you should take them with a grain of salt. These numbers are subject to huge swings from one day to the next.
Additionally, a heart rate monitor is included with the connected scale. However, the usefulness of this feature will be restricted given that your heart rate will be measured while you are standing on the scale. This means that it will not read your heart rate while you are at rest. But having it is beneficial in any circumstance. After you have had your weight and body composition measured, you can simply step off the scale if you do not want your heart rate to be recorded.
The accompanying smartphone app allows for in-depth analysis of all of these parameters for as many as eight users at a time. Because of the connectivity provided by Bluetooth and WiFi, the data will make its way there on its own automatically. A weather prediction can also be viewed directly on the scale itself as an additional feature.
Just be careful not to misplace the USB-C cord because you won’t be making frequent use of it. A massive Li-ion battery with a 3000 mAh capacity may be found on board. It is possible for the device to function normally on a single charge for a whole year.
The MyKronoz MyScale is available for $99 USD. You have the option of purchasing it in either black or white, depending on your preference.
