And after all that hard work, you’ll want to track your progress. Beurer’s range of diagnostic scales costing just shy of £100 will help you do just that. Beurer has a range of five different sleek and stylish scales that offer anything from smartphone networking to measuring body fat, body water and calorie requirements. If the first thing you reach when you wake up is your smartphone, the Beurer BF800 is for you. It offers innovative networking using Bluetooth SMART technology, between your smartphone and the scale, so you can keep track of your measurements and body data at home and on the move. The stylish blue and black design uses ITO coated glass to take measurements of your body weight, body fat, body water and muscle ratio. The BF800 offers two exciting new pieces of software to boost your health: Health Manager and Health Vault. With the Health Manager, you can transfer your measurements via USB or Bluetooth® to your PC or mobile devices, and then manage all of your personal health values in the Health Manager system. Even if you can’t transfer it directly at the time, the BF800 can store up to 30 measured values, which you can transfer when your mobile device is to hand.
